Mr Deepak Patel will be the Managing Director of MphasiS.


Bangalore , Oct. 10

The Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director of MphasiS, Mr Jerry Rao, is appointed as the Vice-President of Electronic Data Systems (EDS) and General Manager of the EDS' operations in India effective November 1.

Mr Rao, in his new role, will spearhead EDS' business efforts in India and become the Non-Executive Chairman of MphasiS. He will report directly to the EDS Chairman.

Mr Rao will replace Mr Stephen Heidt as the Chairman of MphasiS, who will remain a Director on the MphasiS board.

In July, EDS and MphasiS announced their intention to merge the operations of EDS-India, a wholly owned subsidiary of EDS, into MphasiS. That integration is likely to be completed by the first quarter of 2007, said an MphasiS press release.

Mr Jeroen Tas, co-founder of MphasiS, has rejoined the MphasiS board and will continue to serve the company as its Vice-Chairman.

Mr Deepak Patel, recently appointed as Chief Operating Officer of Mphasis, has joined the board and will become the new Managing Director of MphasiS BFL effective on November 1.

His appointment will be subject to shareholders and regulatory approvals.

Mr Patel, who until recently worked in the US, has already relocated to the company's headquarters in Bangalore.

Previously he was Vice-President - Best Shore Strategic Investments and Business Development for EDS.
