New Delhi: Ranbaxy Laboratories, India's top drugmaker by sales, said Indrajit Banerjee joined the company as its chief financial officer on Wednesday.
Ranbaxy is controlled by Japan's Daiichi Sankyo.
Banerjee was previously the CFO of oil explorer Cairn India. Cairn India said on Tuesday Banerjee had resigned to take up a new position elsewhere.
Ahead of its takeover by Vedanta Resources, Cairn India had released a statement saying "Banerjee has stood down from his position as Executive Director and CFO with effect from August 23 to take a new position elsewhere.".
Banerjee had joined Cairn India in early 2007 after its listing on the Bombay Stock Exchange and the National Stock Exchange.
