Srinivas quits Infosys to join PCCW in Hong Kong

NEW DELHI: B G Srinivas, until now Infosys president, is set to join Hong Kong-based diversified group PCCW as Group managing director in July.

 

Infosys has announced the resignation of Srinivas who has been in India’s second largest IT services firm for 15 years and was considered a top contender for the CEO post at the over USD 8 billion IT giant at the end of present CEO Shibulal’s retirement in June next year.

 

In a statement, PCCW today said: “PCCW is pleased to announce today the appointment of Srinivas Bangalore Gangaiah as its group managing director with effect from 14 July.”

 

Srinivas will succeed George Chan, who will retire from his position as the Group MD, following completion of his contract with the company on 7 July 2014.

 

“I am confident that his (Srinivas) immense IT knowledge, experience in service-oriented organisations, leadership skills and international perspective will provide PCCW Group with additional momentum,” PCCW chairman Richard Li said.

 

He added that Srinivas will help develop PCCW’s media and IT businesses locally and internationally. With revenues of over USD 3.5 billion in 2013, PCCW is a Hong Kong-based company with interests in telecommunications, media, IT solutions, property development and investment, and other businesses.

 

Srinivas’ resignation is the tenth top-level exit from Infosys since the return of co-founder NR Narayana Murthy at the helm of affairs in June last year.

 

At Infosys, Srinivas led key portfolios like financial services, manufacturing and public services. He was also the firm’s highest-paid executive (annual compensation of Rs 7.52 crore in 2013-14 fiscal).

 

Srinivas, who joined Infosys in 1999, was elevated to the post of president earlier this year in January. Prior to joining Infosys, Srinivas spent 14 years at power and automation technologies firm ABB, where he held several leadership positions.

 

He holds a degree in mechanical engineering from Bangalore University and has participated in executive programmes at Wharton Business School and Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad.
