Yogesh Mahansaria, founder and CEO of Alliance Tire Group (ATG) was recently awarded the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award 2014 in the manufacturing category. The prize encourages entrepreneurial activity and recognizes the contribution of people who inspire others with their visions and achievements. It is considered one of the world’s most prestigious business awards and distinguishes leading business personalities, recognizing them through awards programs in more than 145 cities in 60 countries.
Mahansaria commented, “We want to be one of the top global market leaders in the segments of agriculture, forestry and construction tires and also build a strong presence in niche earth-moving segments. To continue on our successful path towards these objectives, we must deliver superior quality to the end users of our products through lowest cost of ownership. Our focus on innovation, technology and cost efficient production is as important as the clear communication with the end user.”

Baur graduated in business administration and did post graduation studies in business law at the University of St. Gallen, Switzerland.
