Ashwin Yardi, former India COO, is now the CEO of Capgemini in India. Yardi will also report to Thierry. He becomes a member of the Group Executive Committee, in place of Srinivas.

“With 100,000 people - half of our workforce - based in India across twelve locations, this leadership reinforcement is a natural step and fully reflects how Capgemini in India’s role is at the very heart of our Group; its scale; and its ambition for growth as a leader in the industry,” commented Thierry Delaporte, Group Chief Operating Officer. “I am very much looking forward to working with both Srinivas and Ashwin in their new leadership positions.”
