The appointment of Kouri is in line with the broader trend of diversity and inclusion in the leadership levels the IT firms are driving. Its Bengaluru-based peer Wipro had appointed Laura Langton as CMO in 2019. In a conscious effort, Wipro also appointed Subha Tatvarti as chief technology officer, and Stephanie Truman as chief growth officer.
