Wipro's Vivek Paul Profiled in The TIME/CNN 25 Business Influentials

Vivek Paul is among the list of The TIME/CNN 2004 Global Business Influentials honorees for 2004. The honorees are a new breed of business leaders who have redefined the way business is done, with innovative management strategies and a commitment to transparency, clear accountability and even helping change society along the way.

Vivek Paul was rated as one of Business Week's Best Managers globally for 2003. TIME acknowledges Vivek Paul's contribution in transforming Wipro Technologies from a USD 150 million software developer into a USD 1 billion force in offshore outsourcing, handling IT and customer service for companies. In the honoree list for 2004, Vivek Paul joins the elite company of renowned global business leaders as Jeffery Immelt, GE, Chuck Prince, Citigroup and Jamie Dimon, JPMorgan Chase.

With his home in the U.S. and his work in India, Vivek Paul has a dual take on the rise of global sourcing. He champions India's software industry but also supports a better safety net for displaced workers in the U.S. "My kids are growing up here," TIME quotes Vivek Paul. "It's as important for me to do well in my business as it is to make sure that they grow up with a healthy economic outlook."
