It has been five years since Rajesh Gopinathan, chief executive officer and managing director, Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), took over the reins of the information technology bellwether. The company’s market capitalisation has more than doubled from $84 billion in 2017-18 to $184 billion as on date. Its revenues have climbed to $25 billion in calendar year 2021, from $18.5 billion in calendar year 2017. But analysts say the next five years will define Gopinthan’s legacy at TCS.’
Enclosed in that legacy will be how Gopinathan steers the largest private sector recruiter that TCS has come to be, with over 550,000 employees. While scale is always daunting, it will be his ability to make the company agile that will hold the key.
