Wipro's Ceo

These appointments come at a crucial juncture for these companies.

For instance, if it is growth for Wipro and Cognizant, it would be stability for Infosys as Salil Parekh took over as the CEO after the turbulent tenure of SAP executive Vishal Sikka.

Parekh knew his task was cut out. His predecessor Sikka was appointed as CEO in 2014. He was the first non-founder CEO to lead the company.

“According to executives, Sikka’s product mindset did not work for the company and eventually led to his departure. Then came Parekh’s appointment at a time the company was looking for an executive who would bring instability,” said Pareekh Jain, founder, Pareekh Consulting.

For Humphries, the main task was to restore Cognizant to its former glory, when it was one of the fastest-growing IT companies. After taking charge, he took drastic measures to cut down costs and focus on growth.

Between April and September, there have been many high profile exits. These included restructuring of the company’s sales team, moving away from Facebook content moderation business, and handing pink slips to more than 7,000 mid and senior executives.

Experts Moneycontrol spoke to said Humphries is doing everything right early into his tenure.

In the case of Wipro, the more pressing issue is growth. Delaporte, former COO, Capgemini, will have to push for growth and bring in large deals.
In the last couple of years, the company has barely seen a 2-3 percent growth under Abidali Neemuchwala. For FY20, the company’s year-on-year growth was 1.6 percent.

Neemuchwala had joined the company in April 2015 as the COO and was elevated to the position of CEO in 2016. He resigned on January 30, 2020, citing personal reasons.
