Indian IT services company Wipro has announced the appointment of Aparna Iyer as chief financial officer (CFO) after Jatin Dalal stepped down “to pursue other career opportunities”.
Iyer will report to chief executive officer Thierry Delaporte and join Wipro’s board.
“I am thrilled to take on the role of CFO at this important juncture for Wipro,” said Iyer. “As we continue our transformation journey, I look forward to working with Thierry, our finance team and the entire organization to build on our successes, drive sustainable growth, and create value for our stakeholders.”
Aparna Iyer is a qualified chartered accountant (CA) and earned the distinction of being a gold medalist in the CA 2002 batch. Prior to her CA qualification, she completed a Bachelor of Commerce degree from Narsee Monjee, Mumbai, in 2001.
She has been with Wipro for 20 years, and has held several finance roles, including internal audit, business finance, finance planning and analysis, corporate treasury and investor relations, and, most recently, senior vice-president and CFO of Wipro FullStride Cloud.
Iyer has deep expertise in financial risk management, capital allocation, fundraising, and driving business strategy and growth, the company said in a statement.
“Aparna is an accomplished and results-driven leader. Throughout her 20-year career with Wipro, she has been a dynamic, forward-thinking strategic partner to our business leaders,” Delaporte said.
“Aparna has been integral to our finance transformation over the last few years, playing a key role in our financial strategy and planning, investment programs, and transformation initiatives. Her commitment to creating lasting value, expertise across the full spectrum of finance operations, and her experience in working with a range of stakeholders will be instrumental in achieving our financial objectives,” Delaporte added.
He also thanked Dalal for his contributions to Wipro. Dalal became CFO in 2015, and together with Delaporte, guided the company through the pandemic years when the demand for its services reached an all-time high.
