Outsourcing services company Capgemini India today announced the appointment of Srinivas Kandula as the chief executive officer (CEO).
Kandula replaces Aruna Jayanthi, the former CEO of Capgemini in India, who has moved to a global role within the Group.
“Since the acquisition of IGATE, India has become more strategic to our global business. Srini’s rich and diverse experience across key business functions, notably at IGATE, will help Capgemini in India to play an enhanced role in the Group’s future growth plans,” said Paul Hermelin, chairman and chief executive officer of Capgemini.
Capgemini in India has over 87,000 employees, which is nearly 50 percent of the Group, and caters to over 800 customers globally.
Kandula joined IGATE in 2007 where he was formerly EVP, member of the executive council and chief people officer, responsible for driving IGATE’s Business Strategy, Human Resources, Quality Management and Marketing portfolios globally.
He played a key role in the acquisition of Patni by IGATE in 2011 and of IGATE by Capgemini in 2015.
