Wipro announces two regional head appointments in Europe
Information and technology (IT) services provider Wipro on Wednesday announced new leadership to head roles of regional head and managing director for its Southern Europe operations, and country head and managing director for its Switzerland operations.
The Bengaluru headquartered business has appointed Graziella Neuvéglise for the former role, and René Mulder for the latter role, as per two stock exchange disclosures.
Neuvéglise will oversee the $8.1 billion company’s operations in France, Spain, Portugal and Italy, as Wipro braces itself for the growing demand of digital transformation across enterprises in the region.
“Southern Europe has emerged as a significant market in recent years, with a growing demand for digital transformation as companies expand their offerings. Her (Neuvéglise) addition to our capable team will equip Wipro to better address the requirements of clients in real-time,” Wipro Europe CEO Pierre Bruno said.
Prior to joining Wipro, Graziella served in leadership roles with CGI, Accenture and Capgemini. She holds a postgraduate degree in finance, and a masters in mathematics and econometrics from Université de Rennes in France, the statement said.
Meanwhile, Mulder has been onboarded to boost Wipro clients’ digital agenda and strengthen the company’s footprint in Switzerland. He will leverage his experience to guide Wipro’s clients through their digital transformation journeys, the statement added.
“Switzerland is an important market for Wipro, with a solid customer base and growing demand for digital transformation as companies expand their offerings. I welcome René to Wipro and am confident his depth of knowledge and breadth of experience will bring immense value to the team and expand our presence in the country,” Bruno said.
Prior to joining Wipro, Mulder served in leadership roles with Siemens, Swisscom, T-Systems and DXC Technology in Switzerland as well as in countries like Germany, Netherlands, Poland and the Czech Republic. He holds a postgraduate degree in general management from the
University of Sankt Gallen (HSG) in Switzerland.
About a month ago, Wipro appointed a country head in Brazil. Earlier this month, it appointed country heads for Germany and Austria, and Japan.
