Zensar Technologies, a leading software services and infrastructure provider, recently announced the addition of industry veteran Pinaki Kar to its leadership team, to head its Infrastructure Management business. Infrastructure Management has emerged as one of the pillars of Zensar’s growth, apart from Applications Management, ERP, Digital and e-Commerce. The new Chief Executive for the business, Pinaki, joins Zensar after a successful career with Wipro in a variety of leadership roles across P&L management, Sales and Marketing, Strategy and M&A in US, Middle East & Africa and India.
In his last role, Pinaki was CEO and President of a leading player in the Infrastructure Management and Data Center Services market in the US. His responsibilities included transformation of the business to a higher growth path, incubating Cloud Computing, expanding into Europe and Asia-Pacific, synergizing with the company’s Global Infrastructure Services business and expanding margins. Pinaki was also the Business Head for Middle East & Africa business based in Dubai. Under his leadership, the company’s revenue in this region had grown at a CAGR of 80% plus over 4 years, with the region becoming the highest growing geography for company worldwide, and was rated as the no. 1 Independent SI by IDC.
Pinaki has also led the Corporate Strategy and Mergers & Acquisitions functions for the Global IT Service Lines for the same company. He was involved in many global acquisitions, including the one, which at that time was the largest ever M&A transaction for an Indian IT company.
