Adidas has appointed Neelendra Singh as its new general manger for India, effective from May 20. Singh will now report to Adidas’ managing director for emerging markets, Dave Thomas.
Adidas has transferred Neelendra Singh from his post of senior vice president of Global DTC and franchise to general manager for its Indian operations. Singh has worked for Adidas for the past 14 years and has also held roles at the company including vice president for retail and franchise at Adidas and group retail director in South Korea. Singh, who first joined Adidas in 2005, has also worked at other businesses in India including at Orange, Arcus, and Shoppers Stop.
