                                       have been working with the press team. I joined as a junior executive and climbed to
                                       the executive level in due time. Hyundai has always recognized hard work, experience
                                       and sincerity.

     Moments I cherish…
     The launch of Santro in 1998 in New Delhi, and when the first skin panel came out from the transfer line are the moments
     to be cherished.
