Nasdaq-listed IT firm Cognizant has appointed Ramkumar Ramamoorthy as chairman and managing director, Cognizant India, and named him head of India operations. He will be reporting directly to the company’s executive committee.
Cognizant CEO Brian Humphries in an email to Cognizant employees on September 17, 2019, said, “In the weeks ahead, Ramkumar will be establishing both a management committee and an operating committee for India. These committees will help us further strengthen our operations in the country, proactively advance our agenda as we engage with the media and government, drive greater diversity and inclusion throughout our organization, and extend our corporate citizenship efforts and our reputation as an employer of choice as we work to accelerate Cognizant’s topline growth,” he said. “As our new Head of India Operations, Ramkumar will have all of the country’s location heads and corporate function leaders as dotted-line reports,” he added.
Mr. Ramamoorthy, during his 21-plus years with Cognizant, has played a leading role in developing the firm’s India-based portfolios, including marketing and communications, market research and intelligence, public affairs and knowledge management.
