Sudhakar held the role of Group CEO of the company until late 2016 when John Owen joined the business and took over as the Group CEO. Sudhakar now operates as the Vice Chairman and Managing Director of the Mastek Group.

The company was among the first ones in India to create software products. Mastek USA was established in 1992. Mastek became the first company to develop Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) in India and also the first Indian IT company that got listed at premium price. Mastek UK was established in 1992 and two years later, in 1994, Mastek set up its subsidiary in Malaysia.[4] In 2007, it ranked 11th among the leaders of Global Outsourcing 100 Companies by the International Association of Outsourcing Professionals published in Fortune magazine (April 2007) – Recognition for ‘Methodologies and Innovation’ adopted by Mastek. In 2008, Mastek Limited bought Systems Task Group (STG), an international provider of enterprise solutions for the property and casualty (P&C) insurance industry, in an all-cash consideration of $29 million (Rs. 116 crore).
