After quite a silent period, Mphasis has finally found a new head in Ganesh Ayyar who has taken over as the CEO after Jeya Kumar left the organization. Also a member of the MphasiS Board of Directors, he will be responsible for the overall management of the company.

With more than 22 years of experience, Ayyar's career spans across South East Asia (Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, the Philippines, Indonesia, Vietnam and Asian Emerging Countries) & India. He joins MphasiS from HP where his last assignment was that of VP - Managed Services, APAC & Japan, leading selective sourcing and small and medium outsourcing deals. He joined HP in 1989 in Singapore and served as the head of businesses lines such as manufacturing and telecommunications. In 1999, he became the President of HP India and led the way in delivering the best total customer experience and strengthened HP's position in India. His outstanding efforts saw his move to the position of Asia-Pacific Director of Marketing for the Business Customer Organization in 2001.

Ganesh was the co-lead for pre-merger Integration Planning for HP-Compaq Merger for Asia Pacific & Japan. Immediately after the merger he took on the role of Vice President of HP Services for South East Asia, and lead customer support, consulting & integration & Managed Services business.
