In his new role as CIO, Jhajj oversee Buck’s global technology infrastructure and operations.

Buck Consultants was renamed Mellon Human Resources in 2003, but was acquired by ACS in 2005 and branded as Buck Consultants again. The firm was then bought by Xerox in 2010, and became Conduent HR Services when Xerox’s consulting division was spun off in 2017. Then in May 2018, Conduent HR was bought by H.I.G. Capital and rebranded as Buck.

Over the past 21 years at the oft-acquired firm, Jhajj has been an integral part of the Executive Team in Canada, serving as the leader of Canadian Outsourcing and Engagement practices. During that time, he oversaw the development, growth, and delivery of consulting services while collaborating with other practice leaders across the globe to create and deliver integrated client solutions.Inderjit Jhajj appointed Buck's Chief Information OfficerJhajj holds a bachelor of applied science in mechanical engineering from the University of Toronto.
