After Sikka's dramatic exit, Infosys faces recruitment headache

SHARE:

MUMBAI/BENGALURU - The dramatic departure of Vishal Sikka as chief executive of Infosys, following a months-long public battle with the tech giant's founders, has left the company with another messy problem: how to find someone willing to replace him.

With the boardroom row still simmering, the pressure will be on to do that fast.

The company's last CEO hunt in 2014 was a major challenge. Sikka, the eventual choice who was plucked from a top job at SAP, was the first chief appointed from outside the group of founders. His brief was to turn around a faltering business.

Three sources familiar with internal discussions three years ago said they expected an even tougher challenge now.

"It was extremely hard to find an external candidate last time, and the spat is going to make the job even more difficult now," said one of the sources.

"I think there is very little chance there will be an external candidate."

The new boss will be taking on a company in better shape than it was in 2014: Sikka has led efforts to diversify Infosys away from basic IT outsourcing services into more lucrative new areas, like cloud, automation and artificial intelligence.

Infosys' share price surged 22 percent between Aug. 1, 2014, when Sikka took office and Thursday, outperforming the broader Nifty IT index, which gained 6.3 percent in the period.
