Tata Steel has appointed Parvatheesam Kanchinadham, the ousted chief risk and compliance officer of software giant Infosys, as company secretary and compliance officer.

Kanchinadham, who joined Infosys in 2003, resigned last year after an ethics investigation confirmed that he had made "some gender insensitive" comments to female employees, The Times of India reported. He had assumed the role of chief risk and compliance officer and general secretary in April 2014 from Nithyanandan Radhakrishnan, who left the company to start his own venture.

Following months of deliberations after the allegations surfaced, however, Infosys ultimately moved Kanchinadham to another department, and that's when he decided to resign. On Jan. 12, he began his new role as secretary and compliance officer at Tata Steel. 

Meanwhile, Infosys named Manikantha Ags, currently company secretary at Infosys BPO Limited, as interim company secretary. David Kennedy, chief counsel, has been appointed to serve as chief compliance officer.
