Anand Sankaran, former senior vice president of global infrastructure services at Wipro, has been appointed global head and president of the infrastructure and cloud computing business at Dell Services.
Sankaran will head an international workforce of about 10,000 people from Bangalore, India and be responsible for providing infrastructure systems and consultation, cloud-computing offerings as well as managed services, Dell said Thursday.
He will replace Kevin Jones, who will take on a new position as chief customer and sales officer of the company and report to Dell Services President Suresh Vaswani.
Michael Dell said Sankaran’s experience in the field will help speed up the momentum of the growing infrastructure and cloud-based segments.
Sankaran has held different leadership positions at Wipro since he joined the company in 1989, including India and Middle East business head at Wipro Infotech.
