Banga joined GlobalLogic in 2018, after serving India’s IT behemoth Infosys for nearly 20 years. His leadership qualities were put to test in 2020 when the Covid-19 pandemic forced GlobalLogic to move thousands of its employees to remote-working environments.
“Nitesh has proven throughout his career that he is a strong leader across both vision and execution,” Samant commented about his successor.
“Nitesh has had an excellent track record as COO of GlobalLogic and I am confident that he will be able to maintain the high momentum of growth in the future,” said Keiji Kojima, President and CEO of Hitachi, Ltd.
San Jose-based GlobalLogic was founded in 2000 by four Indian Americans: Rahul Garg, Sanjay Singh, Manoj Agarwala and Tarun Upadhyay.
In April 2021, it was acquired by Japanese industrial conglomerate Hitachi for US$9.6 billion. The large majority of GlobalLogic’s employees are located in India, but the company runs delivery centers in Chile and Argentina as well.
