He will also be responsible for managing the visa and foreign exchange business in India, Mauritius and Sri Lanka.Thomas Cook is adopting a 'shared services' strategy to align its backend services with Kuoni which it acquired last year. As a part of this measure few of its executives will now hold group positions, covering Thomas Cook and Kuoni ( which has been rebranded as SOTC).The executives with new roles include Abraham Alapatt(President and group head - marketing, service quality, financial services and innovation), Amit Madhan (President and group head - technology and shared services),Rambhau Kenkre (President and group head - legal, secreterial and administration) and Mona Cheriyan(President and group head - human resources).In another change, Rajeev Kale will now be in charge of the outbound leisure tour division, in addition to domestic and meeting-incentive tour segment.
