Irshad Saifi has joined one of India’s leading law firms, Shardul Amarchand Mangaldas (SAMCO) as CIO and CDO. In this role, he will be based in New Delhi.
Prior to this, Saifi was at Havells for three years where he spearheaded multiple transformations. At SAMCO, he will essentially hold the combined role of a CIO and CDO.
For those who are worried about hiring talent amid the new normal that is work for home – this is great news. The organization enabled Saifi to do e-joining so he could successfully onboard, and take charge of work from day one.
As the CIO role continues to evolve into a business strategist, digitally onboarding talent is a notable scenario of using technology to ensure business continuity.
