The International Motorcycle Manufacturers Association (IMMA), a body of the global motorcycle industry, has elected Rakesh Sharma, Executive Director, Bajaj Auto for a 2-year mandate, as President of IMMA.
Sharma had been previously holding office as Vice-President in IMMA, elected in May 2019
On being elected, Rakesh Sharma said, “Indeed these are very challenging times and I take up this prestigious appointment fully conscious of the role the motorcycle industry has to play both as a key industry and a responsible member of the society. Whilst we are facing numerous difficulties, we can also see that in due course new but different opportunities will emerge. The role of national, regional and global associations such as SIAM and IMMA is now more important than ever and we will work hard to ensure we play a strong and responsible role in the recovery.’’
In his new role, Sharma succeeds Johannes Loman, Director, PT Astra International Tbk and EVP-Director, PT Astra Honda Motor (AHM) Indonesia, and President, FAMI - Federation of Asian Motorcycle Industries and President of AISI, the Indonesian Motorcycle Industry Association.
Loman stated, ‘’IMMA aims to advance the sustainable growth of the two-wheeler industry in every region of the world. We are fortunate to have Mr Sharma with his wide international experience in the two and three- wheeler industry, to steer IMMA through the difficult time and be the trusted global voice of the motorcycle manufacturers. I look forward to work with Mr Sharma in my role as FAMI representative in IMMA’s Steering Committee.’’
