Tata Motors bought Jaguar Land Rover, which employs 15,000 people, from Ford for 1.3 billion pound in June 2008.

It has been revealed that Forster is expected to join within a few months.

Forster, was responsible for leading GM Europe through its recent turbulent negotiations with the German government and would-be buyer Magna. Besides, he has had some success in moving the Opel brand upmarket.
