Wipro on Monday said it has appointed Jason Eichenholz as senior vice president and global partnership lead, in its 2021 runup to bolster its top deck across business lines and geographies. 

With over two decades of experience working in enterprise technology, Eichenholz has brought deep cloud experience with required sales and service techniques, Wipro said in a statement. 

The new recruit will lead Wipro’s efforts across all partnerships, the statement said.  

Eichenholz has joined Wipro from Deloitte Consulting where he served in various leadership positions for over eleven years. His most recent role was as the managing director, national sales and go-to-market (GTM) leader of cloud. 

In the Deloitte role, he oversaw GTM activity and created joint GTM campaigns with Amazon Web Services, Microsoft, Google, VMWare, Oracle Cloud and Salesforce-MuleSoft. 

Prior to the role, he was part of the leadership team that founded Deloitte Digital and established an ecosystem of partners and offerings centered around Salesforce. 

He also held leadership positions at Oracle, Siebel Systems after starting his consulting career at PricewaterhouseCoopers.  

Eichenholz, Wipro said, will be based in Florida and report to Stephanie Trautman, chief growth officer, who got appointed earlier this year. 

“He brings to Wipro extensive Cloud experience, relationships with several of our key partners and a passion for growth.  He will have a strong team of leaders from across our business who will define and champion our success with our partners and with our clients,” Trautman said.  

Clients across sectors of IT majors are on an intensified cloud acceleratin journey since the aftereffects of the Covid-19 protocols 

touched the economy, to overhaul their day-today operations. 

Late last month, Wipro launched Wipro FullStride Cloud Services, and said it will invest $1 billion in cloud technologies, capabilities, acquisitions and partnerships over the next three years. 

The company currently employs over 79,000 cloud professionals and over 10,000 people certified by the major cloud service providers. Wipro’s total workforce strength stands at 200,000.
