“Anant Goenka, MD and CEO of the Company since April 1, 2012, expressed his desire to handover the charge of the Company to a successor, as the Board may determine, with a view to focus on initiatives at the group level. Accordingly, he sought to be relieved of his duties as MD & CEO of the Company w.e.f. close of business hours of March 31, 2023, while continuing as a Board member," said CEAT in the filing.

I wish Arnab and his team success as they take CEAT to a new phase of growth and excellence", said Harsh Goenka, Chairman of CEAT and RPG Enterprises.
