In a shocking move, Vishal Sikka, who was the first non-founder CEO of Infosys, on Friday resigned from the company following months of acrimony with high-profile founders, led by NR Narayana Murthy, alleging malicious and personal attacks on him. While Sikka did not name Murthy for his exit, the board of the USD 10 billion firm blamed him for continuous assault through factually inaccurate and already-disproved rumours for the sudden resignation despite strong Board support. Sikka, 50, a former German IT major SAP executive under whose three-year tenure Infosys’ revenue rose by about 25 per cent, said he faced false, baseless, malicious and increasingly personal attacks. However, Infosys’ revenue under his tenure rose by about 25 per cent but many high profile exits were also witnessed in the firm. Here is the list of the high-profile exits during Sikka’s tenure:-

– Rajiv Bansal, CFO, quit in October 2015

– Anup Uppadhayay, VP & global head of strategic sales programmes, quit in June 2016

– Manish Tandon, executive VP and head of healthcare, insurances and life sciences, quit in July 2016

– Sandeep Dadlani, head of Americas, quit in June 2017

– Samson David, head of cloud, infrastructure and security unit, quit in July 2016

– Vasudeva Nayak, executive director of global immigration, quit in July 2016

– Sanjay Purohit, executive VP, quit in September 2016

– David Kennedy, executive VP, general counsel & chief compliance officer, quit in Jan 2017

Infosys board in an unusually strong statement defended Sikka’s performance and ruled out a formal role for Murthy in the company’s governance. In February last year, Sikka’s term was mid-way extended by two more years till 2021 largely because of his performance.
