PALO ALTO, Calif. -- Aricent, a global innovation, technology and outsourcing company focused exclusively on the communications industry, today named ex-Wipro veteran Sudip Nandy as Chief Executive Officer. Mr. Nandy will also be appointed to the Board of Directors upon his arrival in October. Aricent’s former CEO Ash Bhardwaj has resigned to pursue other interests.

Previously, Mr. Nandy was the President of the Technology Media and Telecom Business Unit at Wipro, overseeing more than 18,000 people and a revenue run rate of US $1.3 billion per annum.

"Aricent’s recent business performance is a clear indication that the company’s unique combination of global innovation, technology and outsourcing is highly aligned with the needs of equipment manufacturers and service providers worldwide,” said James H. Greene, member of KKR. "We needed a proven global leader to ensure we maximize the tremendous market opportunity in front of Aricent. Sudip’s rich track record and deep domain expertise in the communications and outsourcing industry make him a perfect fit, and we are excited to have him join the Aricent team."
