Wednesday, 26 April, 2017
Tata Communications today announces the election of Ms. Renuka Ramnath as the new Chairperson of the Board of Directors and the successor to Subodh Bhargava. An Independent Director of the Board since December 2014, Renuka is a doyen of corporate finance and a private equity veteran with an unparalleled track record. After a very successful stint in the ICICI Group for close to two and a half decades, she set up Multiples in 2009. Today Multiples is a US $ 1 billion Independent Private Equity platform that has the rare distinction of being backed by marquee Indian and global institutions including pension funds, sovereigns and banks. Renuka draws immense satisfaction from the fact that she has over several years guided and supported entrepreneurs to build successful businesses and create valuable enterprises.
Commenting on Renuka’s election, Vinod Kumar, Managing Director and Group CEO, Tata Communications, said, “This is a significant and exciting appointment for us. Renuka holds a very strong record in creating wealth and value for businesses of all kinds. Having her as our Chairperson enables us to continue to ensure Tata Communications generates positive impact and delivers value to all our stakeholders including our customers, partners and shareholders.”
“It has been a privilege to have been the Chairman of the Board for the last 12 years and to have witnessed the transformation of this organisation from a national player to a global communications leader with customers across the world. Tata Communications is an ideal example of a successful Government-Private partnership and my thanks to both the Government and the Tata Group for supporting me during my tenure as Chairman.” said Subodh Bhargava, the previous Chairman of the Board of Tata Communications. “Tata Communications has tremendous potential and I wish Renuka and everyone at Tata Communications all success in their future endeavours.”
