Infosys Consulting Co-Founder Named to Consulting Magazine's Top 25 Consultants
Romil Bahl Honored for Role in Establishing Firm and Driving its Flat World Practice
Fremont, Calif., July 24, 2007 : Infosys Technologies Limited (NASDAQ: INFY), a world leader in consulting and information technology services, announced today that Romil Bahl, managing director and co-founder of wholly-owned subsidiary, Infosys Consulting, was named to Consulting Magazine's 2007 Annual Top 25 Consultants list. Bahl was recognized for his leadership and management achievements in the industry and client engagements throughout his career of more than 15 years.
Bahl is one of the four original founding members of Infosys Consulting. He was instrumental in creating the next-generation business consulting practice which combines best-in-class business consulting services with the global delivery model - the foundation of Infosys' services. As the lead behind Infosys Consulting's Flat World Strategies practice, Bahl has helped the company's clients become more competitive by transforming their business operations.
"Several years ago, Romil changed my status with Infosys from that of a consumer of offshore services to a strong advocate for the unique value his firm can offer through their synergistic technical and process capabilities," said Michael Toomey, director, IT Solutions Delivery at Microsoft Corp. "He has a unique ability to communicate the value of IT to the board room, while providing exceptional hands-on leadership, which encourages creativity and openness. Throughout our interaction on several projects, Romil's work has helped us meet our goals while fostering innovation and ownership within the team. I look forward to many years of working together in the future."
Established in April 2004, Infosys Consulting is a wholly owned subsidiary of Infosys Technologies. Infosys Consulting has changed the consulting model by delivering high quality strategy and business consulting with disciplined technology implementations. In an industry where typically only 50 percent of the projects arrive on time and on budget, Infosys Consulting has proven its engagement methodology and rigor by achieving a 94 percent on time, on budget project delivery track record.
"Consulting Magazine's recognition of Romil is testament to our emphasis on providing the best and most talented consultants to our clients," said Stephen Pratt, CEO and managing director, Infosys Consulting. "Romil is one of the best anywhere at combining strategy and technology. Clients look to Romil and our firm for help in being more competitive in this new, flat world. We congratulate him on this outstanding achievement."
Bahl's recognition represents another milestone for Infosys' success in the consultancy field. Pratt was honored with the designation in 2003 and again in 2005.
