Mumbai, Feb 14 (UNI) Newly-enlarged IT-driven business services provider, Group Steria SCA, today announced its intention to both expand and rebrand its Indian operations following the recent acquisition of Xansa.
Speaking today at the NASSCOM Indian Leadership Forum Group Chairman and Chief Executive, Francois Enaud, exclusively confirmed that, under the stewardship of new Indian Chairman and CEO, Mukesh Aghi, Steria plans to significantly grow its Indian operations. It also plans to fully migrate from Xansa to the new Steria brand in the coming months.
With over 5,000 staff and delivery centres in Noida, Chennai and Pune, the organisation's Indian operations already contribute to more than a quarter of Steria's global headcount.

Francois Enaud commented, ''The Indian presence afforded to us by the acquisition of Xansa not only adds an important dimension to our blended delivery model, but also provides a considerable boost to our integrated solutions and services offering, including IT and BPO. We are delighted to have Mukesh join us to lead our Indian operations and help fulfil our ambitious targets for growth in the region and steer the ongoing integration process.'' The combined group is a market leader in BPO - especially in the provision of Finance&Accounting - and a top 10 IT services providers in both Europe and the UK, with a 2006 revenue of euro 1.8 billion.
