Technology services provider NTT Ltd. (NTT) will have a new global chief executive officer starting April 1, 2020. Abhijit Dubey, who spent 20 years with advisory firm McKinsey & Company, will succeed Jason Goodall.
Dubey will join NTT in early February and formally step into his new role in April. He will be based at NTT Ltd.’s headquarters in London. Following a three-month handover period, Goodall will retire from his executive role on June 30, 2021, and will remain as a board director for NTT Ltd. and Dimension Data, as well as act as a strategic advisor for the NTT Venture Capital business.
“I’d like to thank Jason for his service and commitment to our business for over 23 years and look forward to welcoming and working with Abhijit as he joins us in 2021,” said Tsunehisa Okuno, chair, NTT Ltd.
“We are looking forward to welcoming Abhijit to the NTT family in 2021 to lead the next generation of our business,” Goodall said. “He shares our passion for the technology industry and the role that technology can play in helping make the world a better place. He brings many years’ experience in our industry and context, as well as a strong track record in delivering high performance and profitability in organizations having advised clients on a range of strategic, operational, and go-to-market challenges. I am confident that we have solid foundations in place following our successful integration last year and am delighted to work with Abhijit in the first half of next year to ensure a smooth handover.”
“I’m excited about the opportunity to lead this next chapter for NTT Ltd,” Dubey said. “With many NTT clients accelerating their digital transformation because of the global pandemic, there has never been a more important time for the technology industry to deliver for the world. I am passionate about NTT’s purpose, strategy, and part it will play to help clients, employees and communities leverage technology for good. I am very much looking forward to working with the team.”
At McKinsey, Dubey led McKinsey Digital, which serves chief information officers and business leaders on their companies’ digital transformations. He was also a core leader of McKinsey’s High Tech, Media and Entertainment, and Telecommunications Practices in North America. He was responsible for developing, launching, and scaling digital products and solutions that serve as accelerators for clients. Abhijit not only founded and led McKinsey’s global cloud-computing efforts for nearly a decade but also led the firm’s software work in North America.
