Industry Veteran to Lead Zensar’s Infrastructure Management Business
Company reports major inroads for IM Services in key markets
Westborough, MA – September 2, 2015: Zensar Technologies, a leading software services and infrastructure provider, recently announced the addition of industry veteran Pinaki Kar to its leadership team, to head its Infrastructure Management business. Infrastructure Management has emerged as one of the pillars of Zensar’s growth, apart from Applications Management, ERP, Digital and e-Commerce. The new Chief Executive for the business, Pinaki, joins Zensar after a successful career with Wipro in a variety of leadership roles across P&L management, Sales and Marketing, Strategy and M&A in US, Middle East & Africa and India.
In his last role, Pinaki was CEO and President of a leading player in the Infrastructure Management and Data Center Services market in the US. His responsibilities included transformation of the business to a higher growth path, incubating Cloud Computing, expanding into Europe and Asia-Pacific, synergizing with the company’s Global Infrastructure Services business and expanding margins. Pinaki was also the Business Head for Middle East & Africa business based in Dubai. Under his leadership, the company’s revenue in this region had grown at a CAGR of 80% plus over 4 years, with the region becoming the highest growing geography for company worldwide, and was rated as the no. 1 Independent SI by IDC.
Pinaki has also led the Corporate Strategy and Mergers & Acquisitions functions for the Global IT Service Lines for the same company. He was involved in many global acquisitions, including the one, which at that time was the largest ever M&A transaction for an Indian IT company.
Dr. Ganesh Natarajan, Vice Chairman and CEO, Zensar Technologies said “Zensar’s business in our key markets in the US continue to be robust with new managed services deals in our core infrastructure management services businesses, also showing traction in new areas like end user experience management. We are delighted to have Pinaki lead the Infrastructure Management business.”
Pinaki Kar, Head Infrastructure Management Services, Zensar Technologies said, “I’m deeply honored to lead Zensar’s IM business and look forward to collaborating with all our people to continue to lead the business with the strong partner network and continuing to add value to clients. Together, we make an impact that matters every day for our clients, the capital markets, communities, and society.”
Zensar has signed several deals in its Infrastructure Management (IM) Business in the U.S. in the last month, and plans for continued growth throughout 2015.
- A multi-year service desk deal for a major producer of fault tolerant computer servers and software in US.
- A multi-year end user computing services and support deal for the largest association of physicians—both MDs and DOs—and medical students in the United States.
- A significant multi-million and multi-year deal with a host of IM services bundled with SAP for a premier New Town Development Authority in India
- A flight operations deal for an Indian low-cost(budget) airline
Zensar has been enhancing its portfolio to create a rich and comprehensive set of services to meet the infrastructure needs of its clients. The company has been investing in key partnerships to make this happen, such as with Aternity Inc., to expand its managed services footprint globally for end user experience management.
