India has a big pool of talent, capable of changing the world for good. Indians for long have been making their mark in the world with their brilliant innovations and life-changing discoveries. In the business ecosystem as well, Indians have proved their worth, leading global companies. Especially in the technology industry, Indian-origin Chief Executive Officers have created a separate fan-base for themselves. Google and Microsoft, the two tech giants in the market who are shaping the world, both have appointed Indian-origin CEOs to lead the company. It’s not just tech-giants, many other ace organizations have their heads hailing from India.
The past decade witnessed an increase in Indian CEOs leading global corporations. Indian-origin CEOs currently lead more than a dozen of Fortune 500 companies. IBM and WeWork are the latest companies to welcome Indian-origin CEOs aboard. These new appointments reassert the fact that Indians are actually shaping the global tech world.
One of the main reasons for this trend can be the fact that Indians are hard-working and patient. They have the ability to stay, learn, grow and rise within the company. Among all the Indian-origin CEOs, a majority chunk has spent their precious years of life within one company to achieve where they are today. While Indian employees working around the world are happy having a countryman looking after their organization, a number of people blame the brain-drain of the country.
Here’s a look at international companies that are being headed by Indian-origin CEOs:
It’s not just these people who have made it big. Many Indian startups also have their operations globally and those businesses are headed by their Indian founders only. Many big corporations also have Indian-origin top management executives who’ll soon make it to the list.
