BENGALURU: Cognizant has appointed former Wipro healthcare head Jeff Heenan-Jalil as head of its healthcare division, as the company continues to restructure its business. 

Heenan-Jalil left Wipro in September 2018, and took over as CEO of Europe for automation services company IPSoft. He joined Cognizant in July, his profile professional networking site LinkedIn shows. 

A Cognizant spokesperson confirmed the move. 

“This is a very significant move for Heenan-Jali. Healthcare generates about 30% of Cognizant’s revenue, well over four times the size of Wipro’s healthcare segment and dwarfing privately-held IPSoft’s revenue,” Anthony Miller, at research firm TechMarketView, said in a note.
