The Chief Financial Officer of Infosys MD Ranganath has resigned from the company which will be in effect from November 16.
India's second-biggest software services exporter, Infosys has also accepted the resignation but did not specify the reason behind the sudden departure of the 18-year old leader.
The company has already started a hunt for new CFO.
Ranganath's resignation came seven months after Infosys appointed a new Chief Executive Officer.
Infosys, once the bellwether of India's showpiece $154 billion IT industry, last year witnessed a public row between founding executives and then-CEO Vishal Sikka over alleged corporate governance lapses. Sikka eventually exited the company in August 2017.
Salil Parekh, a long-serving Capgemini executive, took over as Infosys CEO in January this year, at a time the company's board is chaired by another key co-founder, Nandan Nilekani.
"After a successful career spanning 18 years in Infosys including as CFO for the last three crucial years, I now plan to pursue professional opportunities in new areas," the Infosys quoted Ranganath as saying in a statement.
