Amur Swaminathan Lakshminarayanan, who is currently president and CEO of Tata Consultancy Services, Japan, is going to head Tata Communications. According to the Economic Times report, top officials said the AS Lakshminarayanan is set to take the place of Vinod Kumar, former CEO, Tata Communication, who resigned in early July.

Vinod Kumar was working with the company since 2004 and it posted a loss of Rs 82.37 crore in the year ended March, its third straight year in the red.

In its next move, Tata Sons is planning to combine some businesses of the digital infrastructure company with TCS and selling the rest.

ET quoted one Tata person “Some similar services of Tata Communications may be merged with TCS and the rest of the business sold as separate business ventures. But it may not be an easy plan to execute, given the government shareholding in the company.”

Tata Communications network spans more than 500,000 km of subsea fibre and more than 210,000 km of terrestrial fibre. It delivers network services and software-defined network platforms, such as Ethernet, SD-WAN, Content delivery network (CDN), Internet, Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) and Private Line.

Now AS Lakshminarayanan is expected to take over the Tata Communication business who joined TCS in 1983 and he developed the company’s IT service business in the UK.
