NR Co-founder Narayana Murthy played a key role in turning Infosys from an Indian business into one of the world's preeminent hubs for software. Murthy presided over Infosys as chairman for thirty years before handing up leadership to a qualified CEO in 2013. Murthy and his wife Sudha Murthy were unable to take a vacation for thirty years due to his unwavering commitment to his job. In contrast to his views on artificial intelligence, Murthy recently stated on ChatGPT that human ingenuity is the most potent machine. Forbes estimates that Murthy is worth USD 4.1 billion.

  • Qualification: The National Institute of Engineering is where he received his engineering degree. The year 1967 saw him graduate with a degree in electrical engineering. His degree in electrical engineering was awarded to him in 1967. At the Indian Institute of Technology in Kanpur, he finished his master's degree.

About his Success Life:

Murthy started his career at IIM Ahmedabad as a research associate working with a faculty member. He eventually became the principal systems programmer. 

There, he developed and deployed the nation's first time-sharing computer system for Electronics Corporation of India Limited, as well as a BASIC interpreter. He started the company Softronics.

The business failed after about a year and a half, and he joined Patni Computer Systems in Pune.

Murthy states that he went from being a "confused leftist/communist" to a "compassionate capitalist" after being jailed and banished from a border settlement along the Yugoslav-Bulgarian border in 1974 during the communist era.

With the assistance of six other software professionals and an initial funding of Rs 10,000 from his wife Sudha Murty, he launched Infosys in 1981.

Murthy oversaw Infosys as CEO for 21 years, from 1981 to 2002. Co-founder Nandan Nilekani assumed leadership as CEO.

While working at Infosys, he designed, developed, and implemented a global delivery strategy for outsourcing IT services from India. He held the position of chairman of the board from 2002 to 2006. After that, he became the main mentor. In August 2011, he retired from the company and took on the position of chairman emeritus.

In addition to serving as an independent director on the HSBC corporate board, Murthy has also served as a director on the boards of NDTV, Unilever, DBS Bank, and ICICI. In addition, he sits on the advisory boards and councils of several academic and charitable organizations, such as the Rhodes Trust, the Infosys Prize, the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, Cornell University, INSEAD, ESSEC, Ford Foundation, the UN Foundation, the Indo-British Partnership, and the Asian Institute of Management. In addition, he serves as the Public Health Foundation of India's chairman of the board of directors. He serves on British Telecommunications' advisory board for Asia Pacific.

In addition, Murthy is a member of the strategic board, which provides strategic, policy, and governance advice to Cyril Amarchand Mangaldas, the national legal firm. He serves on the International Advisory Board (IAB) of IESE.

In 2016, Murthy discussed "How to Be a Better Manager" in an interview with Harvard Business Review Ascend.
