Rajan Kohli, a former executive of Wipro, has been appointed as CitiusTech Healthcare Technology‘s new CEO. This announcement was made on April 3. Kohli, who was previously in charge of Wipro’s iDEAS business, is highly experienced in driving digital transformation and scaling successful businesses, according to CitiusTech’s chairman, William Winkenwerder.
According to Money Control, Kohli was responsible for generating $6 billion in annual revenue during his 28-year-long career at Wipro. He held several significant positions at the company, including heading the banking and financial services vertical and serving as the chief marketing officer. However, his departure from Wipro is just one of many recent high-level departures, including the recent exit of India head Satya Easwaran.
In a statement, Kohli said that CitiusTech, which is owned by Bain Capital Private Equity and Asian private equity firm BPEA EQT, is well-positioned to bring about significant changes for healthcare and life sciences organizations that are currently undergoing massive digital transformation. He also mentioned that the company has “outstanding talent and exceptional leadership,” and he is confident that they will continue to accelerate growth and unlock additional value.
Wipro confirmed Kohli’s departure and expressed gratitude for his “close to three decades of leadership and contribution to the company” in a statement. In addition to Kohli, Wipro has seen several other top executives leave in recent years, including Australia and New Zealand MD Sarah Adam-Gedge, Brazil country head Douglas Silva, Japan country head Tomoaki Takeuchi, and Middle East country head Mohammed Areff.
Despite these departures, Wipro continues to be a major player in the IT services industry, with a robust global presence and a diverse range of services. However, the company will need to focus on attracting and retaining top talent to maintain its competitive edge in an industry that is rapidly evolving.
