Tom Flack has become chief procurement officer of Tata Motors, joining from Ford Motor Company, where he was most recently the global purchasing director, raw materials & stampings.

Tata used DHR International to identify the right person for the role. Guenter Butschek, CEO of Tata Motors, said: “I am more than happy with the performance of Frank Smeekes and the DHR International team with this challenging search. To find Tom, the team talked to over 100 sources and candidates in the automotive industry from six different regions, proving DHR’s dedication and true global network. Tom Flack has just jump started his new assignment at Tata Motors and we are very comfortable with him as our new Chief Procurement Officer.”
