Infosys to deploy 150 tech executives to sales
Infosys is focusing on strengthening its engagement with clients by deploying delivery side employees to sales, in what is to be one of the first measures being put in place by new chief executive Vishal Sikka. The country's second-largest software exporter, which seeks to regain the IT bellwether's tag, will deploy 150 executives with technical background currently working at the delivery side at Infosys's client locations, said a senior executive of the company. "Yes, we have identified specific people from our delivery organisation to be positioned at our client locations in order to strengthen our relationships with them," said UB Pravin Rao, chief operating officer. "These individuals are primarily from technical backgrounds, have good knowledge of the client landscape and have been involved in successful delivery of ongoing projects."
