Bengaluru: Infosys Ltd on Tuesday said Carol M. Browner, a member of the board and an independent director, has stepped down from the company with immediate effect due to personal reasons.

The company didn’t immediately give any other details about Browner’s resignation and who her replacement will be.

Browner, a former White House energy and climate change director as well as a distinguished senior fellow at the Center for American Progress, was appointed additional director on the Infosys board in April 2014.

She was also part of the company’s nomination and remuneration committee that oversees the nomination process and the incentives and pay offered to its top level executives, including the chief executive and other directors.

The Infosys board, which has eight members, including five independent directors and two executive directors, has two women board members: Kiran Mazumdar Shaw, managing director of pharmaceutical company Biocon Ltd, and Roopa Kudva, managing director and chief executive officer (CEO) of rating agency Crisil.

Browner came on the Infosys board after Ann Fudge, a long-serving independent director, announced her retirement.

Her appointment also coincided with a massive management shake-up at Infosys as the company scrambled to find its first-ever non-founder CEO, amid a string of senior executive resignations.

In June 2014, Infosys appointed Vishal Sikka, a former technology veteran from Germany’s SAP, as its CEO.
