India’s salt-to-steel conglomerate Tata Sons appointed Natarajan Chandrasekaran, the chief of its IT services unit, as the new chairman of its board, the company said.
Mr Chandrasekaran, who currently heads the software arm Tata Consultancy Services, will take charge from February 21 – replacing the former chairman Cyrus Mistry, who was ousted by Tata Sons, the holding company of the sprawling US$103 billion Tata Group.
“The board of directors of Tata Sons, at its meeting today, appointed Mr N Chandrasekaran as executive chairman,” Tata Sons said in a statement.
