BENGALURU, India and NEW YORK, Aug. 16, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Ganesh Ayyar, Chief Executive Officer and Executive Director of Mphasis, a leading IT services and solutions provider, has been announced as CEO Connection's 2016 CEO of the Year. The CEO Connection is focused on Mid-Market (US$ 100 million to US$ 3 billion category) and their Awards honor the most deserving and prominent companies and leaders that are spearheading economic growth and social impact in the middle market.
The CEO Connection Mid-Market Convention and Awards is an annual event that gathers C-suite level executives in various industries to focus on the needs of the middle market. Candidates are nominated by the community, evaluated through by the opinions of academia, media, and business leaders and then narrowed down to a small pool of five candidates. Winners are selectively chosen and strategically placed in the following categories: Mid-Market Company of the Year, Mid-Market CEO of the Year, Mid-Market Rising Star and Mid-Market Social Impact Award.
"It is an honor to be recognized by CEO Connection, while CEOs become the center of such awards, no CEO succeeds if not for the competent and dedicated team that they have. I am thrilled with this recognition and at the same time I see this as a responsibility to do more for my customers, employees and shareholders. I must keep learning and growing along with my team and not allow awards to bloat my ego. This award is as much about failures on which our successes are built. I would like to thank CEO Connection for this prestigious recognition accepting it on behalf of the entire Mphasis team, the driving force that made this all possible," said Ganesh Ayyar, Chief Executive Officer and Executive Director, Mphasis.
A digital age CEO who brings a unique blend of inquisitiveness and hands on expertise on the societal impact of technology, Ganesh Ayyar has been at the forefront in providing a distinctive perspective on organizational success through experimentation and customer centricity. Ganesh joined Mphasis as its CEO and Executive Director in January 2009 and was instrumental in leading Mphasis to the Billion Dollar Revenue club. Ayyar is focused on transforming Mphasis to be a global company with industry vertical focus and as a part of this transformation, Mphasis has effected four strategic acquisitions from across the globe.
Ganesh is acknowledged for creating an employee friendly environment who promotes an open door culture that put great focus on employees and transparent communications. A firm believer of contributing to the society, Ayyar has championed several Corporate Social Responsibility causes especially the employment of people with disabilities at the workplace.
"Ganesh Ayyar, as one of the leading mid-market CEOs in the world, has demonstrated leadership not only by transforming Mphasis into a global company, but by positively impacting economic growth, creating opportunities and influencing social change in society.
