In the continuing string of exits in Infosys, another top-level executive has quit the company. Senior Vice President Sanjay Rajagopalan has resigned from his position, as per a report by Shilpa Phadnis in Times of India.

This comes just a month after the company’s CEO and MD Vishal Sikka left. 

Describing himself as a “free man” on his LinkedIn profile, Rajagopalan mentioned that he had worked with the company for three years and two months from August 2014 to September 2017.

Vishal Sikka, who was CTO (chief technology officer) in SAP, had brought about a dozen executives with him to Infosys. Almost all of them, including Rajagopalan have now quit within three years of joining the firm, the report says.

Rajagopalan was the main force behind the design thinking charter in the company and was trying to help clients reinvent their businesses. The company has stated that over 1,42,000 employees have been trained on design thinking, as per the report.

Having joined Infosys in 2014, Rajagopalan was based in the company's Palo Alto office in California. Following Sikka's departure, his exit was closely expected, the report adds.

Exactly a month ago, on August 18, Vishal Sikka had resigned as the CEO and MD of Infosys. This had come hours after Infosys founder NR Narayana Murthy had said that Sikka wasn’t CEO material.

According to the company statement, Vishal Sikka cited a “continuous stream of distractions and disruptions over the recent months and quarters, increasingly personal and negative as of late, as preventing management's ability to accelerate the Company's transformation.”

“In particular, the Board is profoundly distressed by the unfounded personal attacks on the members of our management team that were made in the anonymous letters and have surfaced in recent months,” the statement said.
