IT major Wipro on Friday said Capgemini Group veteran Thierry Delaporte will join the company as its Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director with effect from July 6, 2020. He succeeds Abidali Z Neemuchwala, whose decision to step down from the company was announced in January this year. Neemuchwala, who had joined Wipro in April 2015 from Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), will relinquish his position as CEO and MD on June 1.
Sanchit Vir Gogia, Founder and CEO of Greyhound Research, said Delaporte is the first non-Indian to be appointed as the CEO of any large Indian IT services company.
“Delaporte comes to Wipro at a rather difficult moment. One where Wipro”s numbers from previous quarters are not very handsome and the markets are severely impacted due to COVID-19,” he added.
