India Times has a great article on the personal wealth created by some of the top outsourcing companies. None of these guys rival Bill Gates, but $12B US is nothing to sneeze at...
Azim Hasham Premji is the richest outsourcing billionaires with a net worth of $12.7 billion. Premiji heads Wipro, a provider of integrated business, technology and process solutions. The software services outsourcing company acquired a business process outsourcing arm in 2002.
A graduate in Electrical Engineering from Stanford University, US, Premji took on the mantle at Wipro at the age of 21, after the sudden demise of his father in 1966.
