“In her role she will be responsible for helping our clients accelerate their cloud journeys and forge greater ties with the industry around the world. She will report to John Granger, general manager, GBS cloud application innovation consulting,” the company said in a statement.
GBS is leading the management services, consulting, and global process services by integrating IBM solutions and services including Watson, cloud, blockchain and technology services in India.

Before that, she was at Wipro, which she joined in the early 1990s.
