Infosys names new EVP, global head of energy

From being the head of communication, media, and tech business, Anand Swaminathan has been promoted to executive vice president of Infosys, a source familiar with the development said. At the same time, the company also named Ashiss Dash as global head of energy and utilities. Many executive vice presidents left the firm under the leadership of former CEO Vishal Sikka, during which the company went through a period of turmoil. Most of the EVPs had actually joined after Sikka took over. The present CEO, Salil Parekh, earlier stressed that he does not believe in bringing in outside talent.

Dash has been with Infosys for 23 years.
