Hrishikesh Nair resigns; Sasi will be new CEO of Kerala IT Parks

Agency News

Thiruvananthapuram: Hrishikesh Nair has resigned on Monday as the chief executive officer of Kerala IT Parks.

The government has made Sasi PM who is the director of International Centre for Free and Open Source Software (ICFOSS) as the new chief executive as an additional charge.

Hrishikesh told media that he would return to USA to take up an IT job. Hrishikesh was appointed CEO of Infopark Kochi by the UDF government in July 2013. When the LDF government came he was made the CEO of all the IT parks (re-branded as Kerala IT Parks).

“I have completed and delivered all assignments for the government. All the three IT parks in the state have registered operational profit,” said Hrishikesh. During Hrishikesh’s stint, a controversy erupted when Nissan which is building its Global Digital Hub complained of slow progress in project clearance and lack of social infrastructure.
