She will step into the shoes of Anant Haidale and will be responsible for nurturing leadership talent and overseeing diversity and inclusion initiatives within the organisation.
The company’s internal programme, TCS LeaD promotes diversity and leadership in the senior ranks of the organisational hierarchy. Mathew’s appointment is part of a series of leadership changes made by K Krithivasan, CEO, TCS, who took charge earlier this year.
