BG Srinivas is leaving Infosys

I wouldn’t normally do a blog about a senior IT executive leaving a company, but I am making an exception for BG Srinivas, who resigned his post of president of Infosys recently.

BG has been a good friend of this blog and contributed articles to it during his visits to the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.

He has posted for this blog from Davos since 2010.

I was expecting him to be the next CEO at Infosys as his name has been heavily linked to the soon to be vacant post.

But he has now resigned and will start working for Hong Kong-based telecommunications, media, IT solutions and property development company PCCW as group managing director starting next month.

S. D. Shibulal, Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director at Infosys said, “During his tenure at Infosys, BG Srinivas played a pivotal role in building the Enterprise Solutions Unit, strengthening our business in Europe and driving growth in key business verticals. I would like to wish him the very best.”

Srinivas said, “I thank Infosys for the wonderful opportunity given to me. My tenure at Infosys has been one of my most rewarding experiences, and I am proud to have contributed to the best growth story in the industry. I wish the Board and Infosys the best of success in the future.”

Here are BG’s blog posts from Davos.
