Tata Motors appoints Natarajan Chandrasekaran as chairman of the board

Tata Motors appoints Natarajan Chandrasekaran as chairman of the board

We all know him from his amazing stint at TCS, yes, we are here talking about Mr. Natarajan Chandrasekaran. The man, who has given almost 30 years of his life to the Tata Group, has today moved to a next level after showing his remarkable caliber at TCS. Chandrasekaran, the CEO of India’s largest software exporter Tata Consultancy Services, was recently anointed as the chairman of Tata Sons, the holding company of India’s largest conglomerate by revenues.  The leadership change that has taken place at Tata Sons is a ripple effect that has trickled down the different industries the group is a part of.

Chandrasekaran was previously designated as the chairman of TCS (Tata Consultancy Services), the most profitable division of Tata Sons, and was single-handedly responsible for making TCS the company with the most private employees in India. At TCS, Chandrasekaran had made the company run faster than most of its smaller peers. During his stint when his predecessor left the firm in 2009, TCS’s revenue was $6 billion. In the less than eight years that Chandra was at the helm, revenue nearly tripled to $16.5 billion. He achieved annual growth rates of 14-16% in years when smaller rivals like Infosys and Wipro were doing barely half of that. A computer engineer, Chandra joined TCS in 1987 and became its CEO in 2009. He is the first professional to head the salt-to-software business house and will take over from interim chairman Ratan Tata on February 21. He will be replaced by Rajesh Gopinath at TCS.

To publicize the same Tata Sons in a statement said “Chandrasekaran has demonstrated exemplary leadership as the CEO and MD of TCS. We believe that he will now inspire the entire Tata Group to realize its potential, acting as leaders in their respective businesses, always in keeping with our value system and ethics and adhering to the practices of the Tata Group which have stood it in good stead.”

“I will grow into the role over a period of time. It is a responsibility which requires binding the group together. I want to show my gratitude to the board and RNT.” Chandrasekaran told to ET’s Business Leader of the Year for 2016.
