Yesterday, former Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) Chief Financial Officer, V Ramakrishnan passed away in the early hours at his home in Bengaluru.
He was 65 years old, survived by his wife Bhavani Ramakrishnan and daughter Madhuri Ramakrishnan.
Ramakrishnan became the CFO in February 2017 and retired in April last year. He worked with Tata Motors, Tata Elxsi, and the consumer electronics industry.
He spent close to eight years at TCS America and nearly 14 years at TCS as Vice President of finance and then the CFO.
In a statement, TCS said, “We are deeply saddened about the demise of our former CFO, V Ramakrishnan in Bangalore today. Fondly known as Ramki, he will be missed by colleagues, friends, and family. After a prolific career in TCS and the Tata Group that spanned across four decades, he recently retired in 2021.”
“Ramki’s invaluable contributions across his many roles left an indelible mark on TCS. He was above all a true gentleman who would always have a smile and a nice word for everyone. Today, TCSers have lost not just an esteemed leader, but a man who stood true to his values and lived his life with utmost humility.”
An alumnus of Loyola College, Chennai, Ramakrishna began his stint with the Tata group as an accounts officer in 1981.
Ramakrishnan was also a member of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India, the Institute of Company Secretaries of India and the Institute of Cost Accountants of India.
