Sushanth Tharappan Appointed as Infosys’ New HR Head, Replacing Richard Lobo

In a recent development, Sushanth Tharappan is set to take over as the new Head of Human Resources (HR) at Infosys, replacing Richard Lobo, according to sources. Lobo, who has held the position since 2015, will transition to a special projects team under CEO Salil Parekh.

Tharappan, currently serving as the head of Infosys’ leadership institute since 2019, has a background in succession planning and executive development. He has been with Infosys since 2000, working in various roles such as global head for talent acquisition, head of HR for Products, Platforms, and Solutions, and Chief People Officer at Edgeverve.

Lobo, an alumnus of Xavier’s Institute of Management, joined Infosys in 2000 and previously led HR for specific industry practices. This change in leadership reflects the industry’s focus on HR functions, particularly in terms of workforce structure and managing hybrid work environments.

This transition follows Shaji Mathew’s appointment as global head of HR in March, succeeding Krish Shankar, who retired. Mathew, an Infosys veteran of 31 years, assumed his role the day after Shankar’s retirement and was previously in charge of the company’s Mysore centre. Infosys has not provided an official comment on the appointment.
