The Board of Directors includes Shri Ashok K.Shah as the Chairman, Shri Mahendra K.Shah as the Managing Director, Shri Hasmukh K.Shah and Shri Rajesh V.Shah as the Executive Directors. Apart from other directors we have expert consultants to help in daily affairs along with senior managers.

V-Xpress is headed by Mr.O.P.Harshwal, its CEO. To have structured accountability the organization has been divided into Regions which have been further divided into Zones. Core activities like HRD, Compliance, Finance, Operations, Sales and Marketing, Air & Rail business and IT have been Centralized at our Corporate office, with each department under the able management of our Corporate Managers.
At Group V we have introduced effective review processes through our monthly review meetings. All regional and corporate managers and the board members meet and review the minutest detail of the business through MIS. Annual Review Meetings are a regular feature in the Company where the board members visit every region, meet all the key people in the regions and understand each and every issue at grassroot level.
