Suzlon Energy has announced the appointment of a new chief executive for its India and emerging markets business.

Rohit Modi will now head up the operation as the wind turbine manufacturer looks to win more business in emerging markets as its operations in India face stagnation due to a withdrawal of tax benefits for wind power generation.
