Bengaluru-headquartered information technology (IT) services major Wipro has announced the appointment of Philippe Dintrans as the senior vice president and head of domain and consulting at Wipro’s iDEAS (Integrated Digital, Engineering and Application Services) line of global business.

Based out of Boston, Dintrans will report to Rajan Kohli, president of Wipro iDEAS business. 

Dintrans joins Wipro from Cognizant Technology Solutions where he was senior vice president and chief digital officer for banking and financial services. He has led numerous large consulting engagements covering business, digital and IT transformation as well as change management for major clients, according to a statement.

“With over three decades of rich experience in leading global teams and delivering exponential business growth, Philippe is well-positioned to strengthen our industry consulting value proposition, help scale business beyond the CIO, build a world-class team and make Consulting, the business enabler for Technology and Digital services,” said Rajan Kohli, president at Wipro iDEAS in the statement. 

Wipro restructured its business with effect from January 1, 2021 into two global business lines (GBLs) which include iDEAS and Integrated Cloud Infrastructure, Digital Operations, Risk and Enterprise Cyber Security Services, acronymed as iCORE. While Kohli heads iDEAS, Nagendra Bandaru, president, heads iCORE. 

The company had also realigned its business across nine geographies to reflect four Strategic market Units (SMUs) at the same time as part of CEO Thierry Delaporte’s strategy. The SMUs include Americas 1 and 2, Europe and Asia Pacific Middle East Africa (APMEA). Europe and APMEA are structured by countries while the Americas markets are structured by sectors. 

In February, Wipro appointed new country heads for Germany-Austria and Japan for growth in these markets. Wipro also appointed a new country head in Brazil in January.
