Former SAP EVP Michael Reh joins Vishal Sikka at Infosys

Vishal Sikka has started putting his team in place to help steer Infosys after years of lagging behind, after a former SAP executive vice president joined Infosys as senior vice president on October 1.

Michael Reh, formerly EVP for business information and technology at SAP, will be based out of Hamburg, Germany, and reporting to one of the Executive Vice Presidents at Infosys, ET learns. Infosys currently has 12 EVPs although it is unclear for now what business will Reh be overseeing.
