In the first exit at Infosys Technologies after Vishal Sikka was named its CEO, K Murali Krishna, Senior Vice President and Group Head of computers and communications division, has resigned.

Infosys in response to a query by PTI said: “We can confirm that he has moved on to pursue his aspirations.’’

“We have identified a leader to take on his responsibilities,” it added.

This is the 13th senior level exit from the country’s second largest software services company in the past one year since N. R. Narayana Murthy returned from retirement as Executive Chairman to put the firm back on a high-growth trajectory at a time when peers such as TCS and HCL Tech were out-performing Infosys.
