Salil Parekh, who took over as Infosys CEO three months ago, has made his first top-deck reshuffle. He will now have three additional direct reportees - 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 & technology Anand Swaminathan.
Parekh has six other direct reportees, including COO U B Pravin Rao, president & deputy COO Ravi Kumar, and president & head of banking, financial services & insurance Mohit Joshi.
The three new inductees are internally being referred to as independent vertical heads. An email sent to Infosys on these changes did not elicit a response till the time of going to press.
London-based Ovum Research analyst Hansa Iyengar said that Infosys is rethinking its strategic approach to the market.
"The leadership rejig brings focus back on the delivery side of the business and reiterates Infosys' commitment to services," she said.
