Sudip Singh, the global head of the energy, utilities, resources and services vertical at Infosys, has quit after a two decade-tenure at the software services exporter, reported The Times of India.

Singh’s departure came after the exit of Ken Toombs, the managing partner and global head of Infosys Consulting, in October 2018, the report added.

Singh, who managed a portfolio of $1.5 billion and oversaw 25,000 people, anchored the engineering services vertical in the capacity of senior vice president and global business unit head from 2013 to March 2018. Under his helm, the division grew at 15% annually for the last two years, where he was instrumental in pivoting the business from barely $100 million to $750 million in revenue, the TOI report stated.

Queries sent to Infosys remained unanswered at the time of publishing this report.

Singh played a vital role in growing the key accounts for Infosys’ engineering services including US-based Spirit AeroSystems, a non-OEM designer and manufacturer of aerostructures for commercial aircraft, said the TOI report.

Spirit AeroSystems is a $60-million account for Infosys, where the Indian firm offers design verification, validation and overall engineering support.

Singh signed a multi-year deal with thermoelectric power plant major Ansaldo Energia. To support its operations, Infosys expanded its presence in Croatia and Russia.

According to TOI, Singh’s other key accounts include cloud services firm Calix, auto major Toyota, networking technology giant Cisco and automotive parts manufacturer Adient.

Engineering services continue to be the stronghold of European IT players. Indian IT firms HCL and TCS also have a strong presence in the space, each having over $1 billion in revenue from engineering services, the report added.
