On Tuesday, the IT industry’s apex body, Nasscom, announced the appointment of Sindhu Gangadharan, SVP and MD, SAP Labs India and Head SAP User Enablement, as Vice Chairperson.
In her new role, she will leverage her extensive experience in technology and corporate leadership gained over decades in both India and Germany to help shape India’s TechAde.
As the first woman to lead SAP Labs India, SAP’s largest R&D center globally, Gangadharan was responsible for overseeing the product development and innovation at all five centers — Bengaluru, Gurugram, Pune, Hyderabad, and Mumbai.
“Nasscom has played a pivotal role in helping accelerate India’s transition into the innovation hub for the world. I am honored to assume the office of the Vice Chairperson at Nasscom and shape the future of India’s Techade in collaboration with some of the finest minds in the industry,” Gangadharan said in a statement.
Earlier this year, she was appointed as Chairperson of the Nasscom GCC Council 2023-25. She also serves on the Board of organizations, including Siemens India and Titan Company Limited.
She is also a member of the Steering committee of the Indo-German Chamber of Commerce, an industry body driving the bilateral trade and deliberations between India and Germany.
Gangadharan’s journey as a woman leader in technology and her continued support in empowering and enabling the youth of India has earned her a coveted position on the Advisory Board of YuWaah, supported by UNICEF.
