Drug firm Strides Pharma Science announced that Sangita Reddy will step down as an independent director of the company. Reddy is the joint managing director of the healthcare major Apollo Hospitals Group.

Inspite of her pre-occupation as a successful entrepreneur, she contributed significantly to the company’s growth particularly when it was resetting its strategy, it added.

“Sangita was appointed as an independent director of the company for a period of five years at the 23rd annual general meeting held on September 9, 2014,” the company said.
