The team, led by Mahesh comes with a great track record, and we look forward to work together and pursue larger deals, expand our offerings and grow the ecosystem here.”
Also speaking on the occasion, the CEO of Areteans Technology, Mr Mahesh Agrawal quoted, “Our journey in Kolkata started with small steps, strong belief in the talent present here and group of 10 consultants initially. In our journey in Kolkata over the past 18 months, we have seen a fivefold growth of the team here to around 50+ Areteans. We continue to be amazed with the talent, commitment to get things done & the pride to deliver the best as a team from our Kolkata center. We are hiring a lot of local talent both experienced and fresh industry graduates from engineering colleges in & around Kolkata to sustain the demand we foresee; hence we are investing to open this 120+ Seater Advanced Delivery Center. It will also be the home of our Insurance based COE focused on delivering strategic & holistic solutions based on Pega to our esteemed customers in India and across the globe.”
