GlobalLogic Appoints Ajmal Noorani as Chief of International Business

MCLEAN, VA--(Marketwire - March 17, 2010) - GlobalLogic, the leader in software R&D services, has appointed Ajmal Noorani as Chief of International Business to accelerate its growth outside of North America. GlobalLogic has set its sights on generating as much as 50% of its business outside of North America within three years. With over 20 years of executive leadership experience in the globalization and technology industries, Noorani is well-poised to realize this milestone.

"GlobalLogic's goal is to provide software R&D services on a worldwide level, and I cannot think of a better person to lead this strategic initiative," said Peter Harrison, Chief Executive Officer. "Ajmal has an excellent track record in building and scaling international business development teams. He has been on both sides of globalization -- both as a provider and benefactor of offshore services -- and he is extremely knowledgeable of the software product and R&D spaces. We are delighted to have him on-board."

Prior to joining GlobalLogic, Noorani served as principal and vice president of business development at Exigen Group. During his tenure, Noorani led a major joint venture to outsource operations in South Africa. While vice president of business development at Packeteer, he helped triple company revenues by building strategic alliances and acquiring two companies. Noorani has also served as vice president of international operations at iGate, where he grew non-US business nearly five-fold in just three years through a combination of organic and in-organic measures.

"Globalizing R&D services is a specialized capability with very high value-add, and GlobalLogic is the leader in this rapidly growing market segment," said Ajmal Noorani. "I am excited about partnering with international ISVs and software-enabled enterprises to help them drive greater innovation and increase the ROI of their core platform initiatives."
