Vishal Sikka resigns: After 3 years of working as the Infosys CEO and MD, Vishal Sikka resigned today from his post with immediate effect. Sikka will now hold the position of the Executive Vice-Chairman of Infosys. He will be replaced by U B Pravin Rao as the Interim-Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of the company. In his letter to his employees today, Sikka wrote, “Three years ago, I started this journey with a calling, to help reshape the company around innovation and entrepreneurship, to deliver breakthrough value for clients, and to help elevate our work, our standing, our selves, on the basis of a dual strategy, bringing together dualities of renew and new, automation and innovation, people and software, to show a new path forward in a time of unprecedented disruption within the industry and beyond.”

But all was not well for him at Infosys. In fact, as per the Infy Board, the man faced a constant attack from various sources. The board in a press release said, “The Board understands and acknowledges Dr. Sikka’s reasons for resignation, and regrets his decision. In particular, the Board is profoundly distressed by the unfounded personal attacks on the members of our management team that were made in the anonymous letters and have surfaced in recent months.”

The release further states, “The Board denounces the critics who have amplified and sought to further promote demonstrably false allegations which have harmed employee morale and contributed to the loss of the Company’s valued CEO.”

All this is clearly stated in Sikka’s letter to his employees. He wrote, ” It is clear to me that despite our successes over the last three years, and the powerful seeds of innovation that we have sown, I cannot carry out my job as CEO and continue to create value, while also constantly defending against unrelenting, baseless/malicious and increasingly personal attacks.”
