The Fate of Thierry’s 18 Musketeers at Wipro: A Tale of Consequences



Thierry's 18 musketeers at Wipro, and what happens to them now

The recent departure of Wipro CEO Thierry Delaporte, one year before completing his term, and the appointment of Srinivas Pallia as his successor has raised concerns about potential changes within the executive committee. At least three members of the ‘Thierry 18’ group, who were hired by Delaporte, have a background in Capgemini similar to his.

Anis Chenchah, Amit Choudhary, and Ajit Mahale, who all joined Wipro from Capgemini, held significant roles in the French IT firm before joining Wipro. With the majority of the executive committee members being based overseas, questions arise about the potential impact of this leadership transition on the company’s future.

Executive search firms have differing opinions on the potential changes within the executive committee. While some anticipate a significant churn in leadership positions, others believe that the existing members will continue based on their performance and contributions to the company.

Wipro’s decision to appoint internal candidates to top leadership positions signals confidence in the depth of talent within the organization. However, concerns about senior leadership attrition remain high, especially given the recent departures of senior executives after Delaporte took over as CEO.

Amidst these changes, Wipro’s profitability has been a point of focus, with the company experiencing a decline in operating margins while its competitors have shown growth. As Wipro navigates through these transitions, the stability of its senior management team will be crucial for its future growth and success.
