An accomplished business leader with extensive experience in international business development, start-ups and turnarounds, mergers and acquisitions, CP played a pivotal role one of the biggest turnarounds of Indian Corporate History – the acquisition and merger of Satyam.
Living by the credo, ‘don’t work hard, work smart’, CP brings an inimitable leadership style combined with a laser-sharp focus on customer experience, which has helped Tech Mahindra emerge as one of the leading global digital transformation providers.

One of his many noticeable achievements in the past year has been an ambitious, company-wide initiative aimed at retraining Tech Mahindra employees to ensure they have the skills to remain competitive in the age of digital transformation.

Webinar Topic: Making India’s 2030 Vision Come True in 2020
About the webinar:
The post COVID-19 world is challenging for several reasons. Be it political alliances or economic resilience, the governments across the globe are looking to reimagine and reinvent to remain relevant to the change.
India has a unique opportunity in this world order whereby it can lead from the front but it requires all stakeholders to come together to architect the vision and ensure quick action. Unlike other times in history, this opportunity for India Inc. is not limited to just one sector or service but is really an amalgamation of possibilities across industries. In order to leverage the opportunity, there needs to be a shift in perception and participation and the role of the government and entrepreneurs is crucial.
Vivek Wadhwa and CP Gurnani share their thoughts on how the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted us in different ways, given its prolonged and open-ended nature and how one can build a framework for continuous learning & accelerated growth even in difficult circumstances.
