L&T Infotech, the IT subsidiary of construction and engineering major Larsen & Toubro (L&T), has roped in the second executive from Infosys, with the appointment of Sanjay Jalona as CEO and MD. Jalona, who spent the last 15 years with Infosys, was the executive VP and global head of high-tech manufacturing and engineering services. In May, 2014, L&T Infotech had appointed former Infosys senior vice president Chandrashekar Kakal as chief operating officer.
L&T Group executive chairman AM Naik said, “Our clients are seeking smarter and more intelligent solutions. We believe Sanjay has the ability to solve these challenges and the experience to take L&T Infotech to the next level.”
Jalona will operate out of L&T Infotech’s office in New Jersey. According to the company, his appointment adds thrust to plans to boost growth and presence in the Americas, Europe, GCC countries and the Far East. L&T Infotech has been without a CEO following the departure of chief executives Vivek Chopra and Mukesh Aghi.
