IT sector leader Infosys Ltd has appointed Nilanjan Roy as Chief Financial Officer, effective 1 March 2019, as per the company’s regulatory filing. Nilanjan Roy, who was previously appointed as the global CFO for Bharti Airtel Ltd, will be replacing interim CFO Jayesh Sanghrajka who will resume his charge of deputy CFO.
Infosys CEO Salil Parekh in the regulatory filing said: “We are delighted to announce that Nilanjan will join Infosys as our CFO. He comes to us with extensive and rich global experience. We would like to express our deep appreciation to Jayesh Sanghrajka for taking charge as interim CFO and thank him for ably executing this very important responsibility.”
The development came after, when Infosys’ then CFO M.D. Ranganath abruptly resigned in the month of August this year, prompting Sanghrajka to assume temporary charge as Infosys CFO.
Roy, who is a BCom graduate from Delhi University and a chartered accountant, will become the first outsider to hold the post of Infosys CFO. Bharti Airtel, where Roy served for past 13 years, said in a regulatory filing “The board has accepted the resignation of Nilanjan Roy with effect from 28 February 2019.”
