Darwinbox Appoints a New VP and Global Head of Transformation

Darwinbox, Asia’s leading HR Technology platform, announced the appointment of Vijayshankar Ananthanarayanan to its executive leadership team. Vijay joins the company as Vice President and Global Head of Transformation as Asia’s fastest-growing HCM technology player accelerates its expansion globally. Vijay brings a wealth of experience to his new role of providing integrated transformation roadmaps for technology organizations to scale and sustain across geographies. At Darwinbox, he would be primarily leading cross-functional initiatives, strengthening the maturity and scalability of the operating model, and accelerating readiness to credibly operate in large enterprise segments across geographies.

Prior to Darwinbox, Vijay was the Director of People Consulting at EY where, for more than 15 years, he held different positions of increasing responsibility and complexity. From driving business outcomes through people to driving digital and functional HR transformation for clients across sectors, Vijay has worked extensively with talent from all major geographies across the world. Vijay has a Post Graduate Diploma in Human Resources from XLRI, Jamshedpur, and is based in Bengaluru. Speaking about his appointment, Vijay said, “15 years in the People Consulting practice at EY helped me internalize the power of purpose, customer value, discipline, relationships, and humility. This lays the foundation for my journey at Darwinbox.”

He further added, “Having seen multiple technology platforms as part of my digital talent transformation work, I found that Darwinbox was focusing on considerations that truly matter, while also providing a good platform for me to bring my collective experience and network to help drive the next evolution. I am truly delighted to have an opportunity to co-build a globally respected talent lifecycle management platform ‘From Asia, for the world’. I look forward to working closely with our respected 550+ customer partners, vibrant Darwinbox team, and inspiring investors to amplify Darwinbox’s impact for customers globally while concurrently embedding institutional robustness.”

“We look forward to working with Vijay who comes with rich and diverse industry and transformation experience. We are certain that his passion for customer impact and boundaryless worldview will propel us further in serving our customers,” said Jayant Paleti, Co-Founder, Darwinbox.
