Hexaware has recently revamped its leadership team and has appointed PR Chndrasekhar as the CEO. ‘Sekar’, as he is popularly known as in the industry, has joined Hexaware from Wipro where he was the Chief Executive for Americas and Europe. Under his leadership Wipro's European operations have consistently grown ahead of the industry, driven by wins in a number of key deals, deepening of client engagements and expansion of service lines, including addition of a strategic consulting unit.

In his earlier roles in Wipro, Sekar has been responsible for Global M&A, Channel Development and the Global .Net Business. He led Wipro's initiatives in M&A which have bolstered Wipro's position as a leading Global IT services and BPO provider. He has also had a successful stint in Wipro GE Medical Systems in Sales. Prior to joining Wipro, Sekar was responsible for M&A for GE India.

He joins Hexaware at a time when bad forex contracts have hit the company and the mid-tier IT segment is on the decline but hopes to bring the company back with a bang. Sekar has a degree in engineering from IIT Madras. He also has an MBA from the Jamnalal Bajaj Institute of Management Studies, Mumbai University.
