Mindtree CEO Debashis Chatterjee

Indian IT services firm Mindtree Ltd has named former Cognizant executive Debashis Chatterjee as its new Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer.

The company also appointed Larsen & Toubro’s (L&T) Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director SN Subrahmanyan as its non-Executive Vice-Chairman.

“Mindtree, a L&T Group Company announced the appointment of Debashis Chatterjee as the CEO & MD of Mindtree Ltd. He has been inducted into Board of Mindtree Ltd with a mandate to lead the company into its next phase of growth,” Mindtree said in a statement.

The changes come a month after manufacturing-to-software conglomerate L&T bought a 60.06% stake in Mindtree, following a hostile bid to acquire a controlling stake.

Prior to joining Mindtree, Chatterjee was President, Global Delivery and Global Leader for the Digital Systems and Technology practice at Cognizant.

Sharing his excitement about the new journey, Chatterjee said, “I am excited and honoured with this opportunity. Looking forward to work with Mindtree employees across the globe and continue to co- create value for customers.”

A graduate in Mechanical Engineering from Jadhavpur Unversity, Mr. Chatterjee has over 30 years of experience working in several leading organisations including Tata Consultancy Services and Mahindra and Mahindra (M&M).
