Infosys CEO Mohit Joshi has left the company to join Tech Mahindra. On March 11, 2023, Tech Mahindra announced the appointment of Joshi as the company’s Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer.
The former Infosys President will also hold Key Management Personnel status for five years from December 20, 2023 to December 19, 2028.
Who is Mohit Joshi?
Tech Mahindra’s newly appointed CEO has an excellent resume that doesn’t just include his position at Infosys.
After graduating from Delhi Public School, he received his degree in History from St. Stephens College, Delhi University. In addition to his MBA from the Faculty of Management Studies, he is also a graduate of Harvard Kennedy School in the US, where he studied global leadership and public policy.
Before joining Infosys, he worked with some corporate giants such as ANZ Grindlays and ABN Amro Bank.
In 2014 he was recognized as a Young Global Leader at the World Economic Forum (WEF).
Whose Position Will the Former Infosys President Take?
Joshi will replace CP Gurnani who will retire on December 19, 2023. He will join the company well in advance to ensure a smooth transition process.
As one of the longest-serving Chief Executive Officers, Gurnani remains a prominent figure in the Indian IT industry. Shortly after joining Tech Mahindra, he led the acquisition and later the merger of Satyam Computers with the company.
After a rigorous selection process, Gurnani was appointed MD and CEO of Tech Mahindra in June 2009, beating out several internal and external candidates.
Joshi’s departure marked the loss of another valuable Infosys employee in just a few months. Former Infosys President and COO Ravi Kumar S left the company in October 2022 to join Cognizant as President.
