Ex-Wipro exec resurfaces at L&T Infotech

What a pleasant surprise to bump into Sudip Banerjee at the IoD yesterday. Until recently, Sudip was President of Enterprise Solutions at Wipro, one of CEO Azim Premji's top team and a co-founder of the Indian IT giant. After an unpublicised departure from Wipro (read into that what you wish), Sudip has resurfaced as CEO of L&T Infotech. L&T who? They're the IT services arm of Larsen & Toubro, the Indian technology, engineering, manufacturing and construction conglomerate, and apparently the largest privately-held IT services player in India. We'll be meeting up with Sudip in coming weeks and will let you know a lot more about this little-understood player and what they're doing here in the UK. Of course, this is not good news for Wipro, which has suffered a number of senior executive defections as Mr Premji retains his iron grip (and some 80% of the equity) on the company.
