Infosys HR head leaving

This is big news. Wonder who will take over from Hema.

MS HEMA RAVICHANDER, the global head of the human resources at software major Infosys Technologies Ltd, has quit. "I am currently exploring various options including consultancy opportunities in the human capital management space," Ms Ravichander told Business Line. In a study conducted by Business Today in 2002, Ms Ravichander was identified as one of India's top 25 young executives: the only woman to figure in that list. Last year, Dataquest selected Ms Ravichander as one of the six IT Superwomen.

Looks like she's fixed on the consulting option. The big news would be if she joins one of the big HR consulting firms in India. Will it be Hewitt, Watson Wyatt or a homegrown consulting firm like GrowTalent or ECS? Which reminds me, The Hay Group is still headless in India.....
Correction: They have actually been headed by someone since may, someone called Frank Hartle. The folks in India are listed here.
