L&T Technology Services (LTTS) announced that Amit Chadha has taken over as CEO & managing director of the company with effect from April 1, in line with previous disclosures made to stock exchanges in October last year. Prior to his elevation, he was serving the company as deputy CEO and as a full-time board member.
Chadha, who joined LTTS in 2009, has been a key member of LTTS’ executive management team and was closely involved in the company’s listing on stock exchanges in 2016.

“The ER&D services sector is poised to play a critical role over the next decade as confluence of engineering and technology reshapes the products and services of the near-future. Against this backdrop, the multi-vertical engineering expertise that LTTS has demonstrated makes it stand apart as a leader in pure-play ER&D services. I see it as a big responsibility to lead the pack of over 16,000 bright and committed LTTSites,” said Chadha.
Chadha’s overall career spans over two decades in core engineering and information technology outsourcing. He has managed P&L for multiple business units, spearheaded organization-wide strategic initiatives and led business development and relationship management activities worldwide.
