Logica boosts offshore operations

Logica is to open a new facility outside Chennai in India which will eventually have 1,500 staff. They have also poached Abhay Gupte from EDS to be their new CEO in India. GBS Bindra gets the newly created role of Global Innovation Director. Gupte's predecessor as CEO of Logica India, Rahul Patwardhan, becomes Global Director Application Services; based in Europe.

This will ultimately boost Logica’s Indian operations to 4500. Still too small but a speedy step in the right direction. Indeed, I’m quite impressed with this move coming so quickly after Andy Green started as Logica’s new CEO.
