About John

John Gikopoulos leads the AI and Automation practice globally at Infosys. He has had a distinguished career to date, leading innovative offerings in the disruptive technology space for McKinsey & Co, as well as setting up the European operations for a boutique AI solution provider.

In 13 years at McKinsey, John evolved into a partner where he led some of the firm’s top CEO-level advisory engagements across EMEA (generating $100 million+ in revenues for the firm). He also led an engagement advising the Greek government on its growth agenda during the well-publicized restructuring phase a few years back.

More recently, John set up and ran the cognitive intelligence European practice for IPsoft – a disruptive technology company pioneering innovation in the development and delivery of autonomic and cognitive technologies for large companies across the banking, telecoms, insurance and retail sectors.
