Dadlani says he has quit for what he characterised as an ‘out-of-the-world’ assignment, making it harder for CEO Vishal Sikka to monetise his moves into new software and platforms.
Dadlani was directly responsible for looking after the company’s revenue and margin from new software.
He announced his resignation on professional networking platform LinkedIn late in the night on Thursday.
“I am extremely optimistic about Infosys’ continued success and its strong leadership team. I have decided to pursue my interests elsewhere. Next up: An out-of-the-world assignment! Stay tuned,” Dadlani said.
Infosys later put out a press release announcing Dadlani’s departure and said Karmesh Vaswani and Nitesh Banga would be replacing him.
The Bengaluru-headquartered company appointed Vaswani as the Global Head – Retail, CPG & Logistics and Banga as the Global Head of Manufacturing, a while back.
