Newly appointed Rajesh Gopinathan as CEO and MD of TCS , who replaces N Chandrasekaran, has big shoes to fill in. Under Chandrasekaran's charge, the company has evolved as an industry leader and has grown to extraordinary heights.

Exuding confidence, the former TCS chief says his successor will take the country's largest IT services firm to "greater heights" and said that he has been groomed for the leadership role. And, Gopinathan hopes to continue with what the company has been doing in the past and also come up with new ideas.

Gopinathan, who has taken greater roles at the company, from CFO to CEO, joined TCS from Tata Industries in the year 2001. He worked across different geographies and units before being appointed CFO in 2013. Gopinathan is an alumni of Regional Engineering College, Trichy (now National Institute of Technology), and the Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad.

At a time when profits of competitiors of TCS were eroding, Gopinathan ensured that the company managed to retain its profitability.

"He (Gopinathan) has had a great view of the business, he has analysed every part of the business and the company in those days. In 2009, when I took over as CEO I moved him to the finance function and he received coaching and mentoring by Maha (S Mahalingam)," recounted Chandrasekaran.
