The directors of Perot Systems are headed for India this week where they will hold an historic board meeting to signal the surging importance of India and the Asia Pacific region in the firm's growth strategy.
The Texas-based firm also reported that it has 13 acres of land in Bangalore, 25 acres in Noida, and has recently grown its Chennai facilities. The board meeting will be held in Bangalore, which is India's offshore outsourcing center.
"The company," said Chairman Ross Perot, Jr. in a statement, "has achieved a lot in a relatively short time frame, but in many ways we are only just beginning to reach our potential, given the opportunities before us and the strength of our capabilities--especially in India."
Perot Systems said it believes the board meeting is the first directors' meeting to be held in India by a major U.S. multinational IT corporation. Anuroop (Tony) Singh will be formally inducted as a member of the company's directors' board and Padma Ravichander will be cited as the firm's senior executive--India/Asia-Pacific Region.
Perot Systems said it plans an aggressive recruitment drive focused on India's colleges and universities, to take advantage of what it calls India's "competitive human resource pool and diverse skill-sets."
