Loschinin, President and Chief Executive Officer, Luxoft; and the late Dewang Mehta, Past President, NASSCOM®.

The newest inductees were honored at a luncheon ceremony during The 2010 Outsourcing World Summit® here. Established in 2006, the Hall of Fame recognizes individuals not only for their contributions to the management practice and industry of outsourcing, but also for their contributions to society through outsourcing.

"IAOP is thrilled to recognize these leaders who have reshaped outsourcing and inspire us to higher achievements and contributions to the world around us," said IAOP Chairman Michael Corbett.

"These leaders have shaped the outsourcing profession and we all benefit from their contributions today," said IAOP's Advocacy and Outreach committee chair, Atul Vashistha, Chairman, Neo Group and Neo Advisory.

Family Dollar's Jewett was recognized for his long standing knowledge and contributions to the outsourcing profession, leveraging IT capabilities through outsourcing to better the discount retailer's business and also giving back his leadership and technical skills to a non-profit.

"Being able to leverage our outsourcing capability enables the business to run as a low-cost retailer providing value and convenience to our customers during this challenging economic time," Jewett said.

Luxoft's Loschinin has led Luxoft from its inception in April 2000 in Russia into a leading global IT outsourcing provider serving some of the world's most successful companies.

"This recognition from IAOP reaffirms the importance of Eastern Europe in the outsourcing arena and the valuable skills we are able to provide in high-end outsourcing," Loschinin said.

The late Mehta was lauded as a transformation leader in India's IT industry. He led NASSCOM, India's premier trade body and the chamber of commerce of the IT-BPO industries, from 1991 to his death in 2001.
