Bangalore: Grandchildren and books will take up most of NR Narayana Murthy's time after he retires for the second time from the company he co-founded with six friends over three decades ago.
Murthy will take over as chairman emeritus from October 11 as part of a management rejig announced by Infosys, which named former SAP board member Vishal Sikka as its new chief executive officer and managing director.
Asked what he planned to do after retirement, Murthy said: “At this time, I want to spend time with my granddaughters, my family...I would also be in a position to read a few books.”
Murthy, who first retired in 2011, was called back in June last year to head the firm and put it back on a high-growth trajectory when peers TCS and HCL Tech were outperforming Infosys.
Upon his return, he set up the executive chairman's office and inducted his son, Rohan, as executive assistant.
