He will be joining the IT services firm DXC Technology as senior VP and head of finance, Americas, say media reports.
Rajiv Bansal, former Infosys chief financial officer, is joining US IT services firm DXC Technology as senior VP and head of finance, Americas, a report in TOI said.
Notably, six months back, Bansal's won an arbitration award against Infosys which allowed him to claim the entire Rs 17.38 crore of severance pay granted to him when he quit the company, the report said.
He is starting a new journey in his professional life two years after he resigned as the CFO of ride-hailing service Ola. It may be recalled that Banal had joined Ola three months after quitting Infosys in October 2015. However, he resigned from Ola a little more than a year later.
DXC declined to comment on the move and Bansal also did not answer the text message sent to him by TOI.
DXC was formed by the merger of CSC (Computer Sciences Corporation) with the services business of HewlettPackard Enterprise (HPE) in 2016.
Bansal had courted controversy over the high severance pay he was granted, which was objected to by some founders of the company. Subsequently, the company board too admitted that it had not been objective on the matter. Infosys had paid Rs 5 crore of the payout amount, and held back the rest. It had accused Bansal of breach of confidentiality agreements and deletion of data from official systems.
Bansal had then taken the issue to an arbitrator, who granted a verdict in his favour
