I Rajesh Subramony, am the Managing Director, India at Qualitest Group. As the managing director, my responsibilities include managing and scaling India delivery locations while catering to global clients, building capabilities to elevate the value provided, enabling delivery and operational excellence across the business, as well as powering growth within the domestic market. Forging strategy and implementing transformational change across the organization is yet another aspect that I oversee on a regular basis. Over the last 18 months, I was involved in scaling up the workforce in India by six times while expanding from one center to four, at the same time, elevating the value provided from India through centers of excellence, horizontals, and other business enablement functions. Prior to joining Qualitest, I was responsible for heading global delivery organizations to the tune of $1 billion and also essayed the role of global solutions leader for the quality engineering and assurance business, at Cognizant. I was privileged enough to establish the consulting arm of testing services in North America and played a key role as a global market leader for industry verticals such as BFSI and Healthcare in the USA, driving business growth at a CAGR of 25-30% within the service line. I have had the opportunity to take over leadership roles in Global Delivery, Consulting, and Business development across the US, Europe, UK, and APAC markets, with India as the delivery nucleus.
Earlier, I worked with a technology services start-up, where I helped forge a strong foundation process, technology solutions, and collaborative culture, to help drive exponential (20X) business growth. On the education front, I majored in electrical and electronics engineering from the prestigious College of Engineering, Trivandrum followed by a PGDM from SP Jain Institute of Management and Research, Mumbai.
