French multinational professional services and business consulting corporation Capgemini has gone for a leadership overhaul in India by appointing its current CEO Srinivas Kandula as its group Chairman in India.

The company has also elevated its current COO Ashwin Yardi to the post of CEO, in wake of Kandula being promoted as the chairman of the group.

Both Kandula and Yardi would be reporting to Thierry Delaporte, Group Chief Operating Officer (COO) of Capgemini, whose responsibility also includes India.

Kandula was the CEO of Capgemini in India since 2015.

The realignment of the team has been done with an aim to strengthen its India team, that contributes almost 50% of its global workforce. “With 100,000 people - half of our workforce - based in India across twelve locations, this leadership reinforcement is a natural step and fully reflects how Capgemini in India’s role is at the very heart of our Group; its scale; and its ambition for growth as a leader in the industry,” Delaporte said.

The company employs 2,08,800 globally.
