BANGALORE, JUNE 22:  S Gopalakrishnan on Saturday took over as Chief Executive Officer of Infosys Technologies Ltd from Nandan M Nilekani, who assumed charge as Executive Chairman of the Bangalore-based IT major.


Shareholders approved senior management changes -- announced by the Board of Directors in April -- in the 26th Annual General Meeting of the company.

After a successful tenure of five years as the CEO, Nilekani has followed the Infosys tradition and voluntarily passed on the CEO baton to Gopalakrishnan, a "worthy successor" chosen by the Board, Infosys Non-Executive Chairman and Chief Mentor N R Narayana Murthy said.


S D Shibulal became the Chief Operating Officer.


"Nandan will assist Kris (S Gopalakrishnan), focus on client relationships, be a brand ambassador and contribute to Infosys' strategy", Murthy said.


"These transitions reinforce the efficacy of our long-term succession planning," he said.
