Murugesh, was named among the 50 most influential people in the Nearshore Americas region in the outsourcing industry. The 2011 list highlights 50 professionals who have played a major role in strengthening business process outsourcing and IT services in the Americas, developing new businesses, increasing the region's competitiveness, setting the highest standards for service delivery and, ultimately, improving the lives of their employees.
