Silicon Valley-based engineering services company Xoriant has announced the appointment of Sukamal Banerjee as its new Chief Executive Officer.
Until recently, Banerjee was Corporate Vice President of HCLTech.
During his 27-year career with HCLTech, he held several leadership roles. He ran a P&L of over $1.5 billion across digital and engineering services, where he oversaw the global operations, leading a team of over 20,000 engineers across 30 countries. Banerjee also led the company’s transformation agenda, conceptualising and driving several strategic programs including incubating and leading the IoT WoRKS business unit globally.
"Sukamal comes with a proven experience of driving growth, deep strategic thinking, strong operational expertise, an exceptional leadership track record and will lead Xoriant in its next phase of growth” said Sanjay Jalona Chairman of the Board, Xoriant.
“I want to thank Girish Gaitonde, founder and CEO of Xoriant, for building this extraordinary organisation with a strong foundation and a great culture for innovation over the past 32 years. Under his leadership, Xoriant has become a leading digital engineering company,” added Jalona.
Xoriant was acquired by private equity firm ChrysCapital earlier this year.
“I look forward to working with the impressive senior leadership team of Xoriant; our talented employees; with Sanjay and the board. I am confident collectively a new chapter of growth, value and differentiation will be created for our clients, partners and employees,” said Banerjee.
