Kris, Shibulal to be the new CEO, COO of Infosys respectively

Mr Nilekani, who is presently the CEO and managing director of Insosys will now be the executive co-chairman of Infosys. After Narayana Murthy and Mohandas Pai, Nandan M Nilekani has voluntarily taken the decision for change in the management of the company. Mr Kris Gopalakrishan will be the new CEO and MD, while Mr Shibulal will be the new COO.

The 52-year old Nilekani, who became CEO five years ago, is expected to don the role of an image driver and brand ambassador for the company while leading transformational and strategic initiatives.

‘’We have in Infosys a tradition where people create space for others to do well. NRN did that, Pai did that for V Balakrishnan (who is now CFO ). I want to continue with it,’’. ‘’In a society where there is dynastic rule and cronyism and patronage, we are setting an example through meritocracy.’’ Mr Nilekani said .
The new changes will be effective from June 22, 2007. Infosys chief mentor N R Narayana Murthy will stay on as the non-executive chairman. ’Infosys, as everyone knows, is system-driven and very institutionalised. We hope that this move will surely lead infosys to even more success. BEST OF LUCK INFOSYS.
