The country’s largest IT services firm Tata Consultancy Services today said its non-Executive Director Phiroz Vandrevala has resigned from the company.

“Phiroz Vandrevala has relinquished office of Non—Executive Director of the company, due to personal reasons, with effect from July 8, 2016,” TCS said in a filing to BSE. He had been a director on the TCS board since September 2007.

“The TCS board thanks him for his contribution during his tenure on the board,” a TCS spokesperson said.

However, Vandrevala, also the Vice-Chairman and MD of Diligenta, a TCS subsidiary, will continue with this role.

At Diligenta, he is responsible for driving the business strategy and operations of the organisation and opportunities globally.

With over 25 years of consulting and leadership experience with TCS, Vandrevala had been involved in TCS’ foray into the life and pension industry at the outset and has also overseen the transformation of the UK—based Diligenta.
