Vivek Paul is actually being considered for the role

It would not be surprising if Vivek Paul is actually being considered for the role, but his experience may not fit the bill. Right Mr. Tata?

He has been credited for Wipro’s growth from $150 million (when he joined in 1999) to a $1.4 billion company with 50,000 employees in 2005. A month after resigning, he become a partner at Texas Pacific Group (TPG) capital and put in his papers in December, 2008.

It is in the news that he will replace Ramadorai. In fact, his name was also being taken for the post of Satyam CEO before it went to A. S. Murthy. Compared to Ramadorai and Chandrasekharan, “Paul is more competent, but less likely to take the job actually,” avers Rob Enderle, Principal Analyst, Enderle Group. But perhaps the Tatas may go for a strong and experienced veteran who has been into the same business for a long time. That one clause may go against Paul.
