Having been a part of Landmark Group for 18 years, Kabir has a great understanding of the Group and business and displays remarkable leadership and people skills. I am proud today to transition the responsibility of the CEO, Landmark Retail to Kabir, who embodies the group’s values.”
 
Jagtiani added: The business will continue to be an intrinsic part of my life. In my role as Chair, I will be able to devote more effort to furthering the Group’s vision and strategy, spending more time on the Group’s other business verticals and exploring new business opportunities.” 
 
Lumba said: “I am grateful for the trust and confidence the Landmark Group’s Board of Directors have placed in me for this key role, and I am excited to unlock the next phase of growth for the division, both across brands and geographies. I am committed to driving value creation by building on our group’s established legacy in the region and strengthening the bonds between our brands and millions of customers, through innovation across business. I am very fortunate to work with a strong senior leadership team and am confident that collectively we will continue our journey of growth under the able guidance and direction of our dedicated management.”-- TradeArabia News Service
