The National Association of Software and Services Companies (NASSCOM) is set to have its first female president. The trade body on Friday named Debjani Ghosh as its President-designate to succeed R. Chandrashekhar after his tenure ends in March.

 

“I am happy to pass on the baton to Debjani, and I am sure with her experience and leadership, Nasscom and the industry will scale greater heights of success,” Chandrashekhar said. “I wish her all the best.”

 

Ghosh has been a member of the NASSCOM’s Executive Council and a trustee of the NASSCOM Foundation. She was serving as managing director of Intel South Asia, too.

 

NASSCOM Chairperson Raman Roy said, “Her appointment reflected ‘the importance of diversity and inclusion, which is a key pillar for the industry’.”

 

“Under Debjani’s leadership, Nasscom will further enhance its initiatives in innovation, disruptive technologies, skilling and new market access,” he added.
