Less than nine months after resigning as the MD and CEO of Hinduja Group company Defiance Technologies, Subu D Subramanian has re-joined the company in the same role, according to a release.

Defiance Tech, had, last September, been hit by a string of senior-level exits, the most prominent of which was Mr. Subramanian’s resignation. Mr. Subramanian had, after leaving, joined IT firm Cognizant as a consultant and adviser last December.

His contract with Cognizant was a short-term one, and has now come to an end.

According to Mr. Subramanian, coming back to Defiance Tech was important after taking a break. Along with the Hindujas, he has brought in a new Enterprise head as well as a new Chief Financial Officer.

Client confidence

“It’s very exciting to come back. When you come back after taking a break, it gives you perspective. My first move, which I have already started doing, is to restore employee confidence. The next is to meet clients… I will be heading to Europe and the Middle East next week to get everything back on track,” he told this correspondent.

In the nine months since his departure, V Sumantran has also stepped down from his role as Vice-Chairman in both the Hinduja Group and at truck-maker Ashok Leyland.

Deep expertise

Commenting on the appointment, Dheeraj Hinduja, Chairman, Defiance Technologies Limited, said, “I am delighted to welcome Subu back to Defiance. Subu brings in deep expertise in creating enterprise scale businesses . I am sure that under his leadership Defiance will march towards the next phase of growth at a rapid pace.”
