Sashi Mukundan who has been with bp for over 42 years, of which 15 were spent leading with the company in India will be retiring and will ensure a seamless transition to Kartikeya by September 30, 2024.

In the last 20-plus years that he has spent with the company, Kartikeya has held senior roles in finance, commercial, and business transformation in India, Singapore, and UK.

Last year he took the role of Vice President, Group Investor Relations in bp’s head office in London driving investor engagement. Previously, Kartikeya was closely involved with setting up the bp joint ventures with Reliance in India. From 2020 until 2023 he was the CFO for Jio-bp (bp’s mobility JV with Reliance in India).

“It is a privilege for me to accept this position,” said Kartikeya Dube.

“Now, more than ever, it is a very exciting time for India. We are proud to be associated with India’s energy journey for more than a century, and to have a strong and valuable partnership with Reliance Industries Limited that helps us deliver real value to customers”, Kartikeya added.

Kartikeya further said, “India is a crucial part of bp’s strategy as we pivot to being an integrated energy company and support the country’s aspiration for energy independence by 2047. I am excited to be taking forward our growth plans in India and build on the legacy created by Sashi Mukundan and the bp India team.”

Sashi’s long and illustrious 42-year career in bp as well as his leadership as HoC bp India has helped bp build a strong business in India, enabled by the support of the government, public sector, business partners, local communities and academia.

Sashi has always led with conviction, and positivity and leaves a strong legacy of being a true advocate for bp in India.
