Renesas Electronics India Pvt. Ltd, the Indian subsidiary of advanced semiconductor solutions supplier Renesas Electronics Corporation, has said that it will be strengthening its operations as part of the company’s strategy, as part of which it will appoint new local leadership and become independent.

Additionally, Renesas India’s newly established local System and Solution Engineering Team (SST) will develop “unique, easy to use products that meet the needs of customers”.

New Leadership

In order to successfully implement the new changes, Renesas has appointed Susanta Sengupta as the President of Renesas India. Susanta has over 15 years of experience in the semiconductor industry, with a rich background in analog products in numerous global semiconductor companies. Srikhanth Nagaraj has also been appointed as the Head of Sales
and the SST in India. Srikhanth has over 25 years of experience and a successful track record of strategic, technical and tactical leadership in various global semiconductor companies.

“The appointment of local leadership will ensure faster and effective delivery of locally-appropriate decision making,” said the statement.

In addition, Renesas’ office in India will be relocated to a larger campus in Bengaluru. The new campus will accommodate more space and a comprehensive laboratory facility for
development and testing of products and system solutions aimed for the local market.

Renesas will also establish a local SST to develop unique system solutions tailored for the Indian market that best fit the needs of customers across India.

“India continues to be a key growth market Renesas must focus on,” said Sailesh Chittipeddi, Executive Vice President & General Manager of the IoT and Infrastructure Business Unit at Renesas. “Our sales strategy of Deeper and Broader has accelerated over the last few years. Strengthening our operation in India will play a vital role in providing
scalable products and solutions tailored to our customers across India, further expanding our presence and driving growth in key segments. ”

Furthermore, Renesas India’s campus will be expanded to include a comprehensive laboratory to develop optimal solutions.

Renesas also announced that it will acquire Celeno Communications Inc. to expand its connectivity portfolio and engineering footprint across India and Israel.

These initiatives, in addition to the establishment of the local SST, will give customers in India better access to the extended product portfolio and necessary support within the sales channel, said the company.
