Rajesh Nambiar has been appointed by Nasscom as the Chairman and Managing Director of Cognizant India as its Chairperson. Succeeding Anant Maheshwari, former president of Microsoft India, Nambiar takes on the new role from his previous role as vice chairperson.
While navigating the current volatile macro environment, Nambiar, along with President Debjani Ghosh, will continue to work with the Nasscom Executive Council, industry, and the government to strengthen India’s position as a global technology hub. Focusing on accelerating the adoption and widespread impact of cutting-edge emerging and deep technologies, enhancing India’s talent capabilities aligned with evolving job roles and tech acceleration, focusing on integrated industry solutions for scale efficiencies, sustainability, and rapid innovation, and building a diverse, inclusive, and equitable work environment for all will be the leadership’s core priorities.
“The technology-led transformation in this decade offers a lifetime chance to rethink, reengineer, and reimagine technology for global impact. As enterprises accelerate their journey towards digitalization, they will evolve into adaptive entities capable of absorbing volatility and building sustainable growth models with diversity and inclusion as their cornerstones. I am honoured and humbled to support the Nasscom Executive Council as its Chairperson and look forward to working with all its stakeholders to continue to strengthen India’s leadership as the most trusted tech partner for the world,” Nambiar said.
