Princeton, NJ (PRWEB) January 17, 2007
Argea, an outsourcing and business process consulting firm, is pleased to announce the addition of Srinivasan "Vishy" Viswanathan to its Senior Advisory Committee. Viswanathan brings substantial global outsourcing experience and acumen to Argea's team of senior outsourcing practitioners and will contribute to Argea's global business strategy and client relations.
Ram Iyer, CEO of Argea said, "An outsourcing professional of Vishy's caliber is not easy to come by in the outsourcing advisory space, so we are very pleased to welcome him onto our team. A person with his insight and understanding is of enormous value to our clients who need to execute successfully to maintain growth and competitiveness. Given the generally low adoption rate of BPO in banking, for example, Vishy will be able to help companies to implement successfully and dramatically shorten their time-to-benefit in outsourcing. From the customer's point of view, you would have a hard time finding a more knowledgeable expert that knows all of the risks and rewards as well as he does."
Viswanathan has had a distinguished thirty-year career in IT consulting and offshore software development, and is widely recognized as an expert in implementing and managing global IT resource and delivery strategies. He is the former Managing Director of Resource and Location Strategy for JPMorganChase where he spearheaded its entrance into offshore sourcing of application development and maintenance, business process optimization, and technology infrastructure services. He is also credited for establishing and managing the offshore software delivery organization of CitiCorp, COSL, in India and of PRT (now enherent) in Barbados.
Having lived and worked in the USA, India, U.K, New Zealand, The Netherlands, Jamaica, and Barbados, and traveled to over 60 countries, Viswanathan has developed an excellent understanding of the causes and effects of globalization, the role of outsourcing in a global economy, and the value of cultural competency in creating excellence.
Said Viswanathan, "I am very excited to be joining this group of highly accomplished outsourcing practitioners. I am well aligned with their mission to bring the benefits of outsourcing to both large and mid-market companies. I know that Argea and its clients can benefit from my experience in creating and executing global sourcing strategies that deliver cost efficiencies, with higher quality and productivity. The need for global resourcing will only grow as competitive pressures in banking, insurance and financial services are intensifying like never before. Future competitiveness for these companies will, to a great extent, flow from their ability to leverage global resources for maximum business advantage."
Viswanathan earned a MBA from the Indian Institute of Management (IIM), and a Bachelor of Technology in Electrical Engineering from Indian Institute of Technology (IIT). He is an accomplished author and speaker and is often cited in outsourcing and financial services industry publications.
