Vishal Sikka’s wife Vandana quits Infosys Foundation

Former CEO of Infosys (CEO) and MD (CEO) Vandana Sikka, wife of Vishal Sikka, left the service arm of the IT services company Infosys Foundation. She was the president of Infosys Foundation in the United States.

“Today, I am writing this email to inform you that I have decided to move from my role as President of the Infosys USA Foundation. But, as we know, a person’s passions are not bound by entities that shelter us temporarily “Mrs Sikka said in her resignation email that she also shared on the blog platform, Medium.

Murthy said: “I have not commented on the work of Sikka, my problem concerns governance at Infosys, I believe that the fault lies with the board.”

Since then, the Infosys board has seen an important rejig with four members leaving, including Vishal Sikka. Ravi Venkatesan has also resigned from the position of Co-Chair of the Board of Directors. However, he continues to be an independent director.

In the meantime, former CEO Nandan Nilekani was brought back as a non-executive chairman of the company last week, in order to divert the company from the crisis in which it is located, even if the search for a new CEO continues ….
