Manu Sharma, earlier the VP of product marketing at Samsung's mobile business, will now head sales for North and East.

"Mohandeep Singh has de facto become the Indian chief for Samsung's mobile business, filling a role which was left vacant for almost three years since erstwhile chief Vineet Taneja exited. A Korean expat of course will continue to lead. Singh will be directly responsible for driving both revenue and marketing activities, while Warsi will focus on product planning, launch and activations,” an industry executive told ET.
