New man heads up Oakton’s Indian business

Listed- Australian consulting and ICT services firm Oakton has appointed a new head of its Indian business.

Oakton (ASX: OKN) CEO and Managing Director Neil Wilson announced the appointment of Subhash Dubey as Country Manager for Oakton GTSC-I India, to be based in Hyderabad.

Dubey joined Oakton in February and will take over the day-to-day responsibilities of the Indian operations from Dennis Papakyriakopoulos, who has completed five years as Vice President.

Wilson said Papakyriakopoulos was now taking on a new executive role as Oakton’s Executive General Manager of Group Services, and will remain a Director of the company’s Indian subsidiary.

Dubey brings to Oakton over 17 years of experience in account management, client relationship, transition management, program management, strategic consulting, contract negotiation, risk management, scope management and quality management. He has worked across the insurance, healthcare, retail, travel, hospitality and life sciences sectors, and also in telecoms billing.

Wilson said that in his most recent role, Dubey he was based in the US as an Account Director at Cognizant Technology Solutions Corporation managing a portfolio of $40 million-plus.

“We are very fortunate to have someone of Subhash’s experience joining the Oakton team. Our offshore operation is now at 300+, contributing over 27% of overall production hours to our business and Subhash has the pedigree to further strengthen and grow our very strong offshore team,” Wilson said.

“There is a growing need for customers to partner with a true technology and consulting company to reduce the  ‘Total Cost of Ownership’ associated with running their day to day operations, whilst investing the savings in modernising their legacy applications,” Dubey said.

“We help them to create differentiated platforms to achieve higher sales and desired outcomes, coupled with better customer experiences. This is the space I believe Oakton excels in by providing cost effective and high quality managed services and cutting edge solution delivery from its India Development Centre.”
