To commemorate this milestone of 20 years, Infosys Chennai orchestrated a series of engaging and interactive events at the campus. Talking about the 20-year journey of Chennai DC, Muthuvel Gajapathi, Center Head, Infosys Chennai (Sholinganallur) said, “These 20 years have been an exhilarating and at the same time, a heartening ride for all of the employees who were associated with the DC.

Thothathri V, Center Head, Infosys Chennai (M City) added that, “Our success story continues to progress with the unwavering support from our employees, clients, the local community, and all stakeholders who have played a central role in our transformational growth.”

During the celebration, several long-serving employees of the DC were facilitated for their loyalty and immense contribution towards the organization. Mahesh S, a seasoned employee of Chennai DC spoke on this occasion and said,  “I’ve been fortunate to watch the transformational growth of Infosys, in particular at Chennai DC. It is not just the numbers and the title of being a global leader that I’ve privileged to be associated with, but the formation and evolution of the very fabric of the DC – the teamwork, leadership and camaraderie of the employees here that makes me proud to be part of Chennai DC.”
