In 1997 Bhasin founded Genpact, formerly GE Capital International Services. He was the President and CEO until June 2011.
In the mid 1990’s very few people had heard of business process outsourcing, Bhasin started with a call centre of just 20 people and a satellite link to ensure 24-hour communications. He knew he was on to something 800 people responded to an advertisement to work in the call centre.
Under his leadership Genpact has expanded its BPO operations to include China, Eastern Europe and Latin America, as well as India. Genpact is recognised today as the pioneer in its industry with more than 55,000 employees across 17 countries and nearly US$2bn revenues.
