About new Tech Mahindra CPO Richard Lobo

Richard Lobo, before being roped into the new role at Tech Mahindra, was a part of IT giant Infosys for over two decades. Lobo spent 22 years at Infosys and resigned in August 2023, and took on the role as HR consultant and strategic advisor at edtech firm BYJUS's.

Lobo is also a former colleague of the current Tech Mahindra CEO Mohit Joshi. Before this, Harshvendra Soin was both the CHRO and head of marketing at the IT firm but will soon be shifting to Australia to head the company's business in Asia Pacific and Japan.

Moneycontrol reported that the new CEO is heading major restructuring across Tech Mahindra in an effort to drive up profits and boost productivity amid the top leadership in the firm.

Announcing the plan last year, Joshi said that Tech Mahindra will now focus on vertical-wise leadership rather than geographical leadership from now on.
