According to a report in The Economic Times, Kapil Chopra has resigned as president of the Oberoi Group, according to a memo sent by the company. A copy of the memo from executive chairman PRS Oberoi’s office, states that Chopra stepped down to pursue entrepreneurial interests. The memo said discussions over Chopra’s ‘future plans’ had started in April 2017 and Oberoi had asked him to continue for some time to plan the transition. 

Chopra’s last day in the company will be January 31, 2018. Messages to PRS Oberoi, Chopra and Vikram Oberoi, MD of the Oberoi Group, went unanswered. Speculation over Chopra’s exit had been doing the rounds for a while. 

According to the memo dated December 29, Chopra joined the Oberoi Centre of Learning and Development in 1994 as a management trainee. He left the chain in 1999 and re-joined the company when PRS Oberoi asked him to open the Trident Gurgaon as its first general manager. He also opened the Oberoi Gurgaon and was promoted to the position of executive VP for both hotels. 

He oversaw the operations and marketing of Trident hotels in Agra, Jaipur and Udaipur. In January 2013, he was promoted to the position of president at the Oberoi Group. The memo said Chopra will continue to advise executive chairman PRS Oberoi on strategic sales and marketing efforts.
