It’s all official. Infosys co-founder and Executive Chairman Narayana Murthy is all set to step down by October, nearly four years before ending of his designated term. Vishal Sikka, former CTO of SAP, who holds a PhD in Computer Science from Stanford University, has been appointed as the new CEO and MD. He is going to take charge on June 14, 2014 from the incumbent S.D Shibhulal.
Beleaguered Indian IT giant has been going through lean phase with its founders leaving one-after-the-other. Already, Nandan Nilekani had quit Infosys in 2009 to serve as the chairman of UIDAI. Narayan Murthy’s son Rohan Murthy too following the footsteps of his veteran dad. Right now, old is making way for new.
