“We are reinforcing our operations in India to ensure long-term support to our customers and help them develop their strategies for the future,” said Daniel Harari, Lectra CEO. B T Nagesh will be in charge of strengthening Lectra’s customer relationships and addressing the growing needs of apparel and automotive customers in India.
“In the next few years, India will be one of the largest suppliers of apparel worldwide. It will enter a new phase where local apparel sales increase dramatically. Indian apparel manufacturers have started to focus on the growing domestic market and develop their own brands. India will also be a manufacturing hub for automobiles,” said B T Nagesh.
“In order to make the most of these opportunities, while remaining competitive, Indian companies have to use proven technology solutions that improve operational efficiency and reduce production costs without compromising on quality,” said Yves Delhaye. “Lectra’s integrated solutions help customers to accelerate their product design, development and manufacturing processes.”

Prior to that, he was with Siemens PLM software as sales director for aerospace and defense strategic accounts. He has a bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering from Karnataka University, India.
