Tahilyani is currently the CEO and MD of Tata AIA Life Insurance. He will assume the CEO role at Tata Digital on February 19.
Sources said Tahilyani was handpicked by Tata Sons chairman N Chandrasekaran after having demonstrated good execution in the insurance, banking and asset management business of the group.
Pal, who launched the much-hyped superapp Tata Neu, will continue in Tata Digital to “ensure continuity and contribute with his wealth of experience” to the firm, according to a company statement. The company did not say what exactly Pal’s role would be.
“Naveen brings in a strong understanding of consumer domain and a very successful track record of leadership. I wish Naveen success in his new role,” Chandrasekaran said in a statement.
