India’s third-largest software exporting firm, Wipro, will name some new vertical heads by the year-end, according to two people familiar with the matter, as part of chief executive TK Kurien’s strategy to improve growth numbers.
Wipro has already made more than a dozen changes at its 50-odd verticals and practices since December last year. It is now expected to name bosses for product engineering services and global SAP practice, while some of the other verticals may see new faces, the people quoted earlier told ET.
“TK realises that vertical heads now have the most important role to execute our long-drawn work,” said a head of a vertical at Wipro. “Obviously, elevations also brings in more accountability (for these leaders).”
A company spokesperson, however, said, “Wipro has no plans to announce any organizational restructuring and any such suggestion would be purely speculative.”
