Cognizant India Chief Ramkumar Ramamoorthy To Step Down

Ramamoorthy was raised as the Chairman a year ago and has worked with Cognizant for more than 22 years.


Over the most recent one year, Cognizant has seen numerous senior ways out, and now in two high-level ways out, Cognizant India Chairman and MD Ramkumar Ramamoorthy and Head of Global Delivery Pradeep Shilige have surrendered in the wake of going through more than two decades at the product administrations organization. 

Ramamoorthy was raised as the Chairman a year ago and has worked with Cognizant for more than 22 years. 

Brian Humphries, CEO, Cognizant reported Ramamoorthy's exit in his mail to representatives and shared that Ramamoorthy has chosen to resign from Cognizant viable 17 July. 

He stated, “I would like to thank Ramkumar for his successful tenure here, for his many contributions over the years, and for being a passionate brand ambassador of Cognizant with our multiple external stakeholders.”

“We are particularly grateful for Ramkumar’s leadership role during the pandemic, where he ensured associate health and safety and affected the transition to work from home,” he further added. 

Ramamoorthy on LinkedIn likewise shared about his next plans and shared that he would now twofold down on his withstanding energy (additionally his first calling!)— training, skilling, and tutoring business people. 

In his LinkedIn post he expressed, “For more than 22 years, Cognizant was the world to me. All of you made that world so beautiful that I was eternally in awe of it. I cannot thank you enough for that. In the past few months, I felt a strong desire to double down on my abiding passion (also my first calling!)—education, skilling and mentoring entrepreneurs. I am all set to explore that world again from July 17.”

Shilige, then again is leaving to invest more energy with his family and seek after his next test, and that he will be with Cognizant until 30 September to guarantee a smooth handover to Stafford. He will be supplanted by Andy Stafford, who has been with Accenture for almost two decades. 

As of late, a few senior VPs (SVPs) and (VPs) have left Cognizant, including three SVPs Jaideep Poondir, Rajesh Balaji and Vinayambika Kidiyur, and VPs Archana Ramanakumar and Vikash Gaur. With or without these ways out, Humphries' attention is on globalizing Cognizant. Furthermore, that goes past their geographic income blend, the quantity of nations we work in, the decent variety of foundations and areas of our initiative groups, or how notable our image is the world over. He stated, "It also requires us to have a Global Delivery Network that is robust and resilient enough to ensure continuity of service for clients no matter what’s happening in the world.” Let's perceive how Stafford helps Humphries accomplish this vision for Cognizant.
