BENGALURU: Five women executives of Indian IT firms are in a list of the top 25 women leaders in IT services for the year 2020.
The list, put together by the news portal The IT Services Report, has Aarthi Subramanian, group chief digital officer at Tata Sons and previously an executive director at TCS, at the No. 3 spot. Inderpreet Sawhney, Infosys group general counsel and chief compliance officer, is at No. 6.
The list, led by Accenture CEO Julie Sweet, has Roshni Nadar Malhotra, HCL’s chairperson, at No. 8, Riju Vashisht, Genpact’s leader for global transformation services, at No. 14, and Laura Langdon, Wipro’s chief marketing officer, at No. 20.

The report said these individuals were selected for their notable contributions to their companies as well as the broader IT services sector. Individuals were reviewed based on breadth of experience, longevity in the industry, professional achievements and corporate as well as division performance.
Accenture’s Sweet was followed by Shelby Austin, Deloitte Canada’s managing partner of Omnia AI and Growth Investments. Nancy Mattenberger, global chief customer officer at Infor, and Carole Ferrand, CFO at Capgemini, took the fourth and fifth spots.
Roshni Nadar-Malhotra, 38, replaced her father Shiv Nadar recently as the chairperson of the $9.9-billion HCL, the company that her father founded in 1976. This makes her the first woman chairperson of an Indian IT services company.
Subramanian reports to the chairman of Tata Sons, the holding company for a group that had revenue of $113 billion in 2018-19. She started her career in TCS, and went on to be the executive director and global head of delivery excellence, governance & compliance at the company.
Infosys’s Sawhney has had a big focus on gender diversity. The company has a diverse team, with 50% of the lawyers being women, including in leadership positions. “Throughout my career I have mentored young women lawyers and law students who have gone on to be successful in their fields. I often take the opportunity to share the story of my journey whether within a larger setting or in one-on-one conversations with other women professionals,” she said.
Riju Vashisht has done several gigs in Genpact. Genpact, she said, takes bets on people. “My growth trajectory is a great example – I have had the opportunity to be on an extremely rewarding career journey which started in HR, transitioned to operations, I went on to lead Genpact’s digital solutioning, RPA and transitions business, and then on to my current role, leading our transformation services business,” she said. The company, she said, considers gender diversity not just a “good-to-do” but vital to growth. “I encourage women leaders to have insatiable curiosity, which not only helps them build future-proof careers and excel in the face of disruption, but also helps organisations remain competitive and continue to thrive,” she said.
