His leadership established the foundation of our operations management business, his guidance helped develop the Analytics business, and it is his insight that has enabled our shift to digital. In addition to guiding EXL to success, Pavan has been instrumental in navigating the company through every challenge it has faced, including most recently the COVID-19 pandemic. Above all, nurturing the 'soul of EXL' was always on Pavan’s mind, and he will leave an indelible mark on the organization and each of us. I am happy that Pavan will now be able to devote more time to his other passions. All of us at EXL will miss him, and we wish the best for him."
“On behalf of the Board and all of EXL, we thank Pavan for his 19 years of leadership and enormous contributions to the company,” commented Garen Staglin, Chairman of the Board. “Pavan’s dedication to our values, our customers, and our employees has inspired us all. We extend our sincere gratitude for his many years of service to EXL.”

For nearly two decades the growth of our company and its people has been my prime motivator and I am extremely proud of what we have accomplished together. My journey has been exciting, enjoyable and fulfilling. It has been a pleasure working with Rohit, the rest of the leadership team, and indeed all the employees of EXL.
