“I am proud of the industry leading growth we achieved during my time as GlobalLogic’s CEO,” commented Shashank. “I believe that for organizations to continue to lead and succeed, their executive leadership must also evolve. Nitesh has proven throughout his career that he is a strong leader across both vision and execution. I am confident that he will set a successful course that will take GlobalLogic through its next major growth phases. I’m also very excited to continue supporting GlobalLogic in my new role as Chairman of the Board as well as to contribute to Hitachi Group’s digital business expansion and digital transformation acceleration.”

Since his arrival in 2018, Nitesh has led critical functions of GlobalLogic’s business. He contributed significantly to GlobalLogic’s noteworthy growth while also adeptly navigating the company through monumental challenges including the COVID-19 pandemic and the war in Ukraine.

Nitesh is a services industry veteran with diversified expertise ranging across Strategy, Business Development, Service Delivery, Operations, and Mergers and Acquisitions. He has adeptly run large-scale P&L organizations and has a deep understanding of Western and Eastern cultures, including Japan. Prior to joining GlobalLogic, he spent more than two decades at IT services and consulting firm Infosys.

“It’s an honor and great responsibility to lead GlobalLogic,” said Nitesh. “The passion, expertise, and deep commitment to our clients’ success demonstrated by our employees has created an invigorating, creative institution. As we enter our third decade, we have a unique opportunity to accelerate enterprise digital transformation backed by Hitachi’s incredible heritage, global reach, and trusted brand.”

“Since GlobalLogic joined the Hitachi Group, Shashank has made significant contributions to the growth of its entire digital business. I look forward to his continued strength in helping the Hitachi Group grow and transform through digital technology,” said Keiji Kojima, President and CEO of Hitachi, Ltd. "Nitesh has had an excellent track record as COO of GlobalLogic and I am confident that he will be able to maintain the high momentum of growth in the future. We are pleased to be working with a leader of his caliber to deliver new value through innovation, Green, and Digital solutions for our customers around the world."

“With GlobalLogic becoming a part of the Hitachi Family, Hitachi’s digital capability has expanded tremendously,” said Mr. Tokunaga. “I would like to thank Shashank for his capable leadership and look forward to his contributions as Chairman of the Board.
