When the boss is comfortable with your work, it’s not much of a surprise that he pulls you in when he moves up. Last year, N Chandrasekaran moved up to the role of Executive Chairman of Tata Sons after helming Tata Consultancy Services for many years. Now, Chandrasekaran has brought in Pradipta Bagchi, global head of corporate communications for TCS since 2005, as Group Chief Communications Officer.  The appointment is effective yesterday (Sept 12). Bagchi will report to Chandrasekaran. A professional with over 25 years of experience in business, media and communications, Bagchi is a former journalist whose switch to PR from being a successful editor with The Times of India group had surprised many.


Said Chandrasekaran on the appointment:“Pradipta brings extensive experience as a communication professional. As the Group Chief Communications Officer, he will play a key role in driving seamless communication experience across the Tata group as well as create engagement with stakeholders. Having worked with Pradipta for a decade, I know that his energy and experience will be very valuable in this area.”


“I am delighted to have the opportunity to continue to work under Chandra. It will be my endeavour to help build on the core strengths of the Tata Group,” said Bagchi.


Debasis Ray, Head Corporate Communications and Public Relations, Tata Trusts will continue to support the Tata Group communications team on an ongoing basis.
