Infosys CEO makes top-level rejig, banks on internal talent
Salil Parekh has carried out a reshuffle at the highest levels, relying solely on internal talent to fill vacant senior portfolios in the firm
Nearly three months after he took over as Infosys CEO, Salil Parekh has made a top-level reshuffle in the technology services and consulting firm, relying on internal talent to fill vacancies after a few high profile exits.
Parekh will now have three additional senior staff reporting to him – senior VP and global head of manufacturing and Edge products Nitesh Banga, SVP and head of engineering Sudip Singh and SVP and global head of communications, media and technology Anand Swaminathan.
He has six other senior staff, including COO U.B. Pravin Rao, president and deputy COO Ravi Kumar and president and head of banking, financial services and insurance Mohit Joshi, the Times of India reported.
Rajesh Krishnamurthy and Sandeep Dadlani had quit as presidents of Infosys over the past nine months. Ravi Kumar has been given the additional responsibility of heading consulting, which was previously led by Krishnamurthy.
Dadlani’s responsibilities were divided between Karmesh Vaswani – who became the global head of retail, CPG and logistics – and Nitesh Banga.
Parekh, a CapGemini veteran, has so far refrained from disrupting the management team with outside hires, a strategy in contrast with that of his predecessor Vishal Sikka, and his tactic has gone down well with employees.
