Infosys Veteran Thrikutam to Lead Dell’s Application Services
Prasad Thrikutam, who was in charge of strategic sales, marketing and alliances at Infosys, will join Dell Services as president and global head of its Application Services division from July 28.
He takes over from Ashutosh Vaidya, who will move into a full-time position as head of global delivery for Dell Services.
Mr Thrikutam, whose exit from Infosys was announced on Thursday, quit the country’s second largest software services firm after 19 years across multiple executive leadership roles. He was head of Infosys Americas and the global head for the $1.4 billion energy, utilities, telecom and services business unit. He was also a member of the Infosys Executive Council.
At Dell, Mr Thrikutam will lead a global team of nearly 10,000 employees responsible for driving its application services business across all vertical market segments, Dell said in a statement.
He will report to Dell Services President Suresh Vaswani and will be based at its headquarters in Plano, it added.
“This is an important time for Dell as well as for the IT services industry. Our Application Services business that Prasad will lead presents a great opportunity for Dell as we help our customers modernise and take advantage of digital transformation opportunities,” Chairman and CEO Michael Dell said.
