Infosys president and US operation head Sandeep Dadlani resigns

While Karmesh Vaswani will replace him as global head of retail, CPG and logistics, Nitesh Banga has been appointed as the global head of manufacturing.

Infosys President and head of US operation Sandeep Dadlani has resigned after serving the IT major for 16 years, Mint reported on Friday. Although the reasons for his resignation is not clearly stated, it comes at a time when there are reports of mounting pressure on the company’s top brass after a series of poor quarterly performances, according to The Times of India.

Dadlani was also the global head of Infosys’ manufacturing, retail, consumer & packaged goods and logistics vertical. “Sandeep has played a key role in the success of Infosys over his career and in our transformation journey these past three years. We wish him the best in the journey ahead,” said Chief Executive Officer Vishal Sikka in a statement.

Dadlani said an “out-of-the-world assignment” was awaiting him. According to reports, he may be joining Virginia-based confectionery company Mars.

While Karmesh Vaswani will replace Dadlani as global head of retail, CPG & logistics, Nitesh Banga has been appointed as the global head of manufacturing. The new appointments will be effective from July 15, reported Economic Times. “I have tremendous faith in their passion for client success and their ability to help clients see and achieve their digital aspirations,” said Sikka. “I am confident that our RCL and manufacturing businesses will thrive under their leadership.”

However, Dadlani’s resignation took the company’s shares on a downward trend. On the Bombay Stock Exchange, the shares fell by 1.24% to Rs 940.50 on Friday.

Dadlani’s resignation is the latest in the series of crucial exits ever since Sikka took charge in August 2014. Several executive vice presidents, including consulting head Sanjay Purohit, healthcare and life sciences chief Manish Tandon and BPO head Anup Updadhyaya, have quit the company in the recent past.

In a related development, the company on Friday said that it has appointed Inderpreet Sawhney as the group general counsel. She replaced David Kennedy who had resigned in January.

A phone so stunning that it deserves its own photoshoot

Presenting the Moto X4, crafted to perfection.

Precision-crafted glass and metal design, an anodised aluminium frame, easy to hold and featuring beautiful contours, the Moto X4 is crafted to perfection indeed.

Reclining on a bed of satin, the glass-encased phone blends into the folds of the luxurious fabric.

The slimness, seamlessness and solidity of the phone make for a great profile shot.

A stunning design which is IP68 rated water-resistant too, it is as beautiful as it is strong.

We partnered with photographer Gaurav Sawn to create this series. Says Gaurav, “The glass sandwich design looks extremely good and the reflections on the back panel make the phone stand out. This is a phone that is best used without a case. The curved corners were also very comfortable to hold. All in all, really enjoyed shooting this phone!”

While this phone is elegant and crafted to perfection, it is also extremely tough, being protected from scratches with Corning® Gorilla® Glass that stretches all the way around.

You don’t need to sacrifice of performance either. It’s packed with a 2.2 GHz octa-core Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 630 processor and comes with a TurboPower™ Charger which means hours of power in minutes!

For the music lover, this phone is a boon. With simultaneous connectivity of up to four Bluetooth® audio devices at the same time, you can build your own stereo system without worrying about cables.

The dual rear cameras – a 12MP that lets you focus faster and get great results even on dark, cloudy days, and an 8 MP camera, with wide angle lens makes your most ambitious photos look all the more impressive.
