Earlier this year in May of 2019 it was announced that Tata Consultancy CEO Rajesh Gopinathan would receive a 28% increase in pay to 16 crore or in U.S. dollar terms low single digit millions. Rajesh is a skilled executive and well worth the pay.
He joined Tata Consultancy Services in 2001 from Tata Industries. His primary initiative upon joining was expansion in the United States for TCS’ newly established e-business unit. Rajesh was elevated to the role of CEO in February of 2017. He was born in Thrissur, Kerala and received his engineering degree from the Regional Engineering College, Tiruchirappalli.
In a recent interview, Rajesh commented on the technology integration, “We are getting to a point where this classification between digital and core is becoming artificial.” He continued, “This is no longer about one technology or aspect, but taking an integrated view and designing a solution that is the best fit for the context. Part of it may be surgery, using new technology, or repurposing existing technology applications.”
Tata Consultancy Services is headquartered in India with major presences internationally. It is a subsidiary of the conglomerate Tata Group and operates in a total of 149 locations across 46 countries. TCS is the second largest Indian company by market capitalization.
