Abhijit Dubey, an industry veteran with experience in technology, media, and telecom, is set to take over as the global chief executive officer (CEO) of NTT Limited, the wholly-owned subsidiary of the Japanese telecommunications company Nippon Telegraph and Telephone Corporation.
He will join the London-based headquarters of the technology services company in February and officially assume the role starting April 1 2021, according to a statement.
Dubey will succeed Jason Goodall, who plans to retire on June 30 to ensure a smooth transition of responsibilities. Goodall will stay as the board director of NTT Ltd, Dimension Data, and strategic advisor for the NTT Venture Capital business.
“NTT is privileged to be a critical technology services partner for many of the world’s leading companies and public sector organisations, with employees in over 73 countries around the world,” Dubey said in the statement.
Dubey was previously a senior partner at global advisory firm McKinsey & Company, where he spent more than 20 years of his professional career. Prior to that, he worked as a senior field engineer at oilfield services company Schlumberger.
NTT employs over 40,000 people around the world.
Of these, over 6500 work out of India, where the company supports nearly 70% of the overall bank branch network. In the country, NTT has 10 data centres, three R&D centres, and offices located across 11 cities.
