Harsh Chugh 

Kyndryl, the upcoming spin-off of IBM’s managed infrastructure services business, named former IBM vice president and 20-year engineering and finance expert Harsh Chugh its chief operations officer in September.

Chugh comes to New York-based Kyndryl from cloud-based benefits administration technology provider PlanSource, where he worked for more than a year.

Prior to PlanSource, he spent more than 17 years at IBM, leaving in May 2020 with the title of vice president and functional COO of global markets, according to his LinkedIn bio. He joined the Armonk, N.Y.-based tech giant in 2002 as a senior consultant.

Kyndryl’s COO announcement comes shortly after many IBM employees updated their social media accounts on Sept. 1 to say they are now Kyndryl employees. Some employees have also been using Kyndryl.com email addresses.
