We could not be in better hands."

Kundapur Vaman Kamath is currently an Independent Director on the Board of Infosys. He is the Non-Executive Chairman of the Board of Directors of ICICI Bank Limited, India's second largest bank. Kamath has a degree in mechanical engineering as well as one in management studies from the Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad.

He has been given an honorary Ph.D. by the Banaras Hindu University.

Speaking on the occasion Mr. K. V. Kamath said,"Infosys is a company which has been built by its founders, led by the visionary leader Mr. N. R. Narayana Murthy, who as its Chief Executive Officer & Managing Director and then as its Chairman and Chief Mentor, provided Infosys its thought leadership over the years. This is an innovation-led company, with a core of outstanding professionals that has always set the highest standards and has built a unique culture. I feel greatly honoured to have been asked to be the Chairman of Infosys by the Board of Directors and accept this responsibility with a deep sense of humility."

Co-Chairman of the Board
Mr. S. Gopalakrishnan (Kris), a co-founder of the Company, has been serving as the Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director since June 22, 2007. Kris is recognized as a global thought leader.

Kris has received many honors including Padma Bhushan. Kris holds a Master’s degree in Physics and Computer Science from the Indian Institute of Technology, Chennai.

Speaking on the occasion Mr. S. Gopalakrishnan said,"I am happy and honoured that the Board has requested me to take on the responsibility of Executive Co-Chairman. I look forward to working with Vaman and Shibu, post August 20th, when Mr. N. R. Narayana Murthy retires from the Board as Chairman and Chief Mentor. Our goal is to strengthen and grow Infosys further while maintaining the trust and confidence reposed in us by all the stakeholders - clients, employees, investors and shareholders, vendor-partners, the government of the land, and society."

Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director
Mr. S. D. Shibulal is one of the co-founders and currently serves as the Chief Operating Officer of Infosys Technologies Limited.

Speaking on the occasion, Mr. S. D. Shibulal said,"I am honored to be appointed the Chief Executive Officer & Managing Director of this great organization. In the last 30 years, Infosys has established itself as an industry leader. Under Kris’s leadership, Infosys has scaled greater heights and has become a respected global brand. Vaman is a well-known and highly-respected corporate leader. As we look ahead, we will ensure that this leadership transition is smooth as all other transitions have been in the past. We are also making other organizational changes to strengthen our market position and ability to serve our clients better."

Chairman Emeritus
The Board of Directors unanimously invited Mr. N R Narayana Murthy to be the Chairman Emeritus effective August 21, 2011. This is in recognition of his founding the company, mentoring his co-founders, and nurturing the organization over the last thirty years.

Speaking on the occasion Mr. N. R. Narayana Murthy said,"I am thankful to the Nominations Committee for doing an admirable job of succession planning and continuing the Infosys tradition of a sound succession strategy. I am glad they have found a perfect team to strengthen customer, investor and employee connect on the one-hand, and world-class board governance on the other hand. Vaman is, in my opinion, one of the finest corporate leaders of modern India. Kris has demonstrated high-class performance during testing times for the industry and the company. I congratulate Shibu on being appointed the Chief Executive Officer & Managing Director. I have no doubt he will do an excellent job like Kris did. Vaman, Kris and Shibu will make an ideal team. I am grateful to the Board for appointing me as the Chairman Emeritus and providing me an opportunity to add value to the Board, the Executive Management and every Infoscion if asked by them."
