Dear TCSers,

While you are likely to have learnt from the press and media, I wanted to write to you personally to share news of my elevation as the Chairman of Tata Sons, the parent company of the Tata Group of which TCS is a part.

The Board of TCS has appointed a new management team headed by Rajesh Gopinathan, who will succeed me as the CEO and Managing Director of TCS. As you know, Rajesh is a 16¬year veteran of TCS and has been a long¬standing member of my management team, worked very closely with me in formulating and executing the company strategy, starting from the E¬Business Practice, moving up to Head, Business Finance and then over the last 4 years as the CFO of TCS. He has led our internal financial transformation over the years.


Rajesh will be supported by N. Ganapathy Subramaniam as the President & Chief Operating Officer and a very able executive team of senior leaders and Presidents, all of whom are part of my current management team and well known to you. NGS as all of you know, is a 35¬year veteran of TCS starting as a trainee and having handled responsibilities across the spectrum of our business. Apart from having managed the Bangalore Delivery Center and stints in North America and Europe, NGS has been a pillar of our BFS business—from the iconic SEGA/INTERSETTLE and Quartz back in the 90’s to the TCS Financial Solutions business over the last decade and more.
Despite the outstanding successes achieved thus far, I strongly believe that TCS’ best years lie ahead. I have every confidence that the new management team will take TCS to the next levels of our aspirations.

TCS is the only company I have worked for all my life so far, and I am very proud of being a TCSer. I have enjoyed every one of the 31+ incredible years I have spent with the company. The successes TCS and I have enjoyed during this period would not have been possible without the amazing support from all of you–my colleagues.

I look forward to continuing my association with TCS–and in turn with all of you–in my new capacity as the Chairman.

With my very best wishes & warm regards,
