Experience of Salil S Parekh in managing multi-cultural work atmosphere blended with his sturdy hold on sales and technology make him the ideal selection for the top Infosys, claim experts of IT industry. Parekh was entitled as the Managing Director and CEO of Infosys and is claimed to take control at the wheel of second biggest IT company of India on January 2, 2018, for a term of 5 Years.
For the 2nd time, Infosys has selected an external member to head its processes after pervious CEO Vishal Sikka in August exited suddenly after a protracted standoff with supporters on accusations of hefty severance packages and corporate governance lapses of previous executives. “Setting Parekh to lead Infosys makes complete logic. He is a fine integrator of Board, people, and promoters, and has experience of a multicultural atmosphere,” Ganesh Natarajan, the industry veteran, claimed to the media in an interview.
Parekh will have to aim on employing individuals who are sturdy in global sales and digital technologies since the IT sector, including Infosys, is in mid of a changeover, he claimed. “The 3 main hurdles for Parekh will be to spend in acquisitions and digital technologies, maintain a worldwide culture at Infosys, and provide and build a violent sales management,” he claimed. Appointment of Parekh also got a green signal from NR Narayana Murthy, the co-founder of Infosys, who had been verbal in his disapproval of the earlier management of Infosys and Sikka.
“I am pleased that the company has employed Salil Parekh as the new CEO. I wish all the luck to him,” Murthy claimed. Parekh is defined as a determined as well as soft-spoken person by those who recognize him. He was selected from more than 2 Dozen members in a hunt that lasted almost 3 Months along with many challenges.
