Kesari Tours, which is one of India’s well established family owned tour company, recently witnessed a recent management change in its leadership. Veena Patil as the managing director quit the company and is replaced by her brother Shailesh Patil. Veena Patil, has disassociated her name from the company and is gearing up to set up a new venture along with husband Sudhir Patil in the month of July 2013. Sunila Himanshu Patil of Strawberi Holidays has also parted ways from Kesari to join the new company.
Kesari Tours is now being headed by a new management team under Shailesh Patil with Kesari Patil who continues as the chairman of the company. Shailesh Patil, MD, Kesari Tours said, “To bring in a new management change in the company was purely based on the decision of the chairman Kesari Patil. The new management will work with a mission to only further improve the efficiency of Kesari. Further, I am also aware that Veena Patil is ready to set up a new company and I feel this move will be beneficial to tourists in Maharashtra as they will have the option of dealing with another quality tour company.”
Speaking on the recent turn of events, Veena Patil, in an exclusive with Express TravelWorld, mentioned, “This split is rather unfortunate, but I feel its time to move out when I have been accused of mismanagement by my family members. For me Kesari is now my past and I am working hard to set up a strong company along with my husband and team in the travel space. I am confident to set up a new company in three years which we did over 30 years. The target is challenging, but with our goodwill we are sure to achieve it. But as a well wisher, I would like to wish the new management all success.”
