Information technology services firm Infosys Ltd has named Jayesh Sanghrajka as its new chief financial officer (CFO) after Nilanjan Roy resigned from the position.
Roy, who has been serving in the role since 2018, will continue as CFO till 31 March before Sanghrajka takes over from 1 April.
The company said Roy has decided to step down to pursue his personal aspirations outside of Infosys.
A chartered accountant, Sanghrajka has over 25 years of experience, with 18 of those years spent at Infosys across two stints.
Sanghrajka joined Infosys in 2000 and served in various roles before exiting the firm in 2007. He rejoined the company in December 2012 and was appointed deputy chief financial officer at the group level in October 2015.
He is currently responsible for various areas of the finance function including investor relations, business finance, corporate finance, treasury and tax. Additionally, he also oversees the mergers and acquisitions portfolio.
In 2016, he was recognized by Businessworld magazine as the ‘Most Promising Future CFO’.
Salil Parekh, chief executive officer and managing director, Infosys, said, “I am delighted to announce that Jayesh will take over as chief financial officer. As deputy CFO, he has been leading multiple portfolios in the finance function for several years now and his depth of experience and knowledge will serve us well to take the function to greater heights.”
“I would also like to express my deep appreciation for Nilanjan for ably leading the function over the last five years and wish him the very best for his future endeavors,” Parekh said.
