Debjani Ghosh, former MD, Intel South Asia, takes office as Nasscom President, succeeding R. Chandrashekhar upon the completion of his term.
Ghosh takes office at a time when the Indian IT-BPM industry, currently a $167 billion sector, serves as a catalyst for the growth of the nation and aims to continue Nasscom’s mission of fostering the digital transformation of the industry and country, embracing new technologies, expanding to newer geographies and working with governments globally to build stronger trade relationships.
Taking office, Debjani Ghosh, President, NASSCOM said, “I am honoured to have been given this opportunity at this inflection point for the industry and the country. I look forward to partnering with all stakeholders for more milestones for the industry, which reigns as a frontrunner in today’s era of digital globalization.”
Ghosh has also been a big propagator of gender diversity and equal representation in corporate India, as the first woman to lead Intel India, MAIT (Manufacturers’ Association for Information Technology) and now Nasscom. She was instrumental in developing Intel India’s ‘Digital Nation’ strategy to support India’s digital transformation, focusing her efforts on digital literacy, technology innovation and building strong partnerships across India’s technology ecosystem.
Sharing his thoughts, Raman Roy, Chairman, Nasscom said, “Over the past few years, the technology industry has witnessed huge disruption across and is currently at the threshold of the next growth curve. Debjani brings invaluable knowledge and experience to the table, and under her leadership I am confident that the industry will scale to greater heights of success.”
