Infosys appoints Ravi Venkatesan as co-chairman Ravi Venkatesan

Bengaluru: Infosys on Thursday appointed independent director Ravi Venkatesan co-chairman amid calls from founders to diversify the board.

The board expansion comes against the backdrop of an ongoing tussle between the founders and the management over contentious issues such as CEO Vishal Sikka's salary hike, severance package to former employees and corporate governance standards.
