Vineet Nayar is something of a legend in the Indian IT space.
Early in Vineet Nayar’s tenure as leader of HCL Technologies, he had an important message for his troubled company.
Last year, Nayar stepped down as CEO and then as vice-chairman of HCL, India’s fourth-largest software services provider, to devote more to philanthropy through his Sampark Foundation even as he advises several companies on their strategies.
Vineet Nayar walks into his new office in a pair of blue jeans and a blue-and-white check shirt. It's a simple ground floor space in a building next to his home in Noida, east of Delhi, most unlike the swanky HCL Technologies office where he served as CEO until January. But Nayar isn't complaining.
