Aparna will join the Wipro Executive Board and report to CEO Thierry Delaporte. She succeeds Jatin Dalal, who is leaving his position as CFO to seek other opportunities, according to the Bengaluru-based IT firm.
“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,” said Thierry Delaporte, Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director, Wipro Limited.
“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, he added.
“I also want to thank Jatin for his contributions to Wipro over his tenure and wish him the best in his future endeavors,” he stated.
While Iyer will take over as CFO on September 22, Jatin Dalal will remain with Wipro until November 30. Dalal was appointed CFO in 2015.
Aparna Iyer began her career with Wipro in April 2003. “In her 20 years with Wipro, she has held a variety of finance positions, 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.” Aparna has extensive experience in financial risk management, capital allocation, fund raising, and driving corporate strategy and growth,” the IT firm stated in a stock exchange filing.
