Accenture's Chet Kamat quits

Chaitanya `Chet' Kamat, head of Accenture's delivery operations in India, quit his position recently citing personal reasons. Kamat was instrumental in building Accenture's delivery network capability in India from scratch over the past five years.
" Chet Kamat has decided to move on from Accenture for personal reasons," said Basilio Reuda, chief operating officer for technology and delivery at Accenture, in an e-mailed statement to Business Line. " Chet was the Lead Executive for the Accenture Delivery Centre in India and was also one of the members of Accenture's leadership team in India. Accenture wishes him all the best for the future." Accenture has appointed Sandeep Arora as Lead, India Delivery Centre. "Sandeep has worked with Accenture internationally and in India for over a decade, and brings an impressive track record in both sales and delivery in technology solutions," Reuda said.

Confirming his exit after being with Accenture for close to 19 years in two stints, Kamat said that he had decided to take a break and spend time with his family. Further, Kamat said he had not decided about his next move.

The India operation is considered a flagship for Accenture's global delivery network. Accenture had close to 18,000 people in India as of end-February and the company has been adding over a 1,000 people on a monthly basis for its IT and BPO operations.
