Bengaluru, Oct 13 (UNI) Infosys CEO Salil Parekh Wednesday said it will be COO Pravin Rao's last full quarter before he retires. "It will be a very special moment this quarter. This will be Pravin's last full quarter before he retires," he told reporters while announcing the company's Q2 results here.
The company will announce a new structure in coming weeks before Pravin steps down which will be later communicated externally, Parekh said. Paying tributes to Rao, Parekh said: "It has been an incredible journey of 35 years that Pravin has been with Infosys where in so many ways he shaped the company."
Pravin's contribution virtually is innumerable and we will miss, personally myself, the tremendous depth of knowledge that Pravin has in the business and his contagious sense of humour," he said.
Rao has over 35 years of industry experience and his moment of pride came when he was declared the interim CEO and Managing Director of the company, after Vishal Sikka's resignation from CEO's post over the matters of governance.
He also held senior positions like Head of Infrastructure Management Services, Delivery Head for Europe, and Head of Retail, Consumer Packaged Goods, Logistics and Life Sciences.
