Satyam Computer Services, Ltd, a leading global consulting and information technology services company, today announced that four of their senior executives have taken on different leadership responsibilities in strategic areas of the organization.
Effective immediately, S.V. Krishnan will lead Human Resources; Pavan Kumar is Chief Technology Officer; Vijay Prasad is Chief Information Officer & Head of Soft Infra group and Hari T (former HR head) will lead Global Marketing and Communications.
“These moves are a reflection of Satyam’s long-term strategy and adhere to our grow-leaders-from-within approach, to help position Satyam to excel. For a fast-growing company like ours, these four positions— CTO, CIO, HR head, and Marketing Head — represent critical elements of our corporate infrastructure,” said Satyam CEO, B. Rama Raju. “These four leaders with long stints in the company bring a rich understanding of the company and will play extremely important roles in our success — in the short term, and well into the future.”
In addition, Rama Raju said, the naming of these executives to such important posts illustrates its commitment to optimizing the talent of its leadership team and creating leaders from within. Krishnan, for example, a five-year Satyam veteran, has led large business teams and was leading the GE business relationship for Satyam. Hari T, the erstwhile HR head and an industry expert, has helped the company grow ten multi-fold over the last 9 years and garnered national and international recognition as a Best Employer. In his new role, Hari will be based in New Jersey, USA to help further the Satyam brand. Vijay Prasad has been leading Satyam’s Enterprise Applications and Business Intelligence Practice for more than a decade which has been one of the company’s most substantial and strategic businesses. Pavan Kumar was playing the role of a Technical Solution Architect and Expert and has been building competency in Tools and Technologies relevant to Satyam's business prior to assuming his new role as the Chief Technology Officer. He will work in realizing Satyam’s strong belief of investing in technologies to provide cost effective and creative solutions to help customers run their business effectively helping them reduce their total cost of ownership.
