Today's chief financial officers face numerous economic and competitive pressures.

EXL's F&A Center of Excellence is rich in Big 4 accounting expertise.  

"EXL is excited to welcome Doney Largey, who brings a proven track record of designing efficient finance, accounting and procurement operations globally," Bloom said. "Doney understands how to combine best-of-breed technology with talented professionals from around the world to solve problems and improve results. His experience and leadership will be a tremendous asset to our organization."

Largey joins EXL with more than a decade as an executive at ACE Group, one of the world's largest providers of commercial property and casualty insurance and reinsurance, most recently as Executive Vice President, Global Operations and Reengineering. He led process reengineering, operations management, outsourcing and offshoring. A certified public accountant, Largey has also held consulting, finance and auditing roles at PricewaterhouseCoopers, Personnel Group of America and Arthur Andersen.

"I look forward to joining a very talented team at EXL," Doney said. "As a former client, I appreciated EXL's understanding that delivering value to CFOs requires more than simply order taking and labor arbitrage. EXL focuses on designing solutions to business problems."

After successfully integrating Outsource Partners International (OPI), which EXL acquired last year, Kishore Mirchandani, formerly Global Head of Finance & Accounting, and Clarence Schmitz, Executive Sponsor of EXL's Finance & Accounting Center of Excellence, will be leaving EXL at the end of May.
