The groundwork for the IT organization at Bayer has been laid, paving the way for Bijoy and the IT leadership team to take the digital transformation at Bayer to the next level,” emphasized Hartert. Sagar will start at Bayer on April 1, 2020, giving him time to prepare for the task ahead and to ensure a smooth handover. In his new function, he will be reporting to the Chief Financial Officer.
