Romil Bahl, CEO of PRGX

Romil BahlUpon completing his undergraduate engineering degree from the Directorate of Marine Engineering and Technology in Calcutta, India, Romil Bahl received his MBA from the University of Texas, McCombs School of Business.  Romil still claims his ties to the University, and spoke at an IM Symposium in 2010.  He states,

“I believe that the Texas Information Management program is one of the most holistic in the country.  It offers research and deep insights on global sourcing, technology, the management of information, processes, innovation and, of course, problem solving and entrepreneurship. It is this combination that will allow the McCombs School to remain truly differentiated.”

Romil began his career at Deloitte Consulting, then moved to A.T. Kearney.  Here, he grew to be a partner and office of the firm, and held his last role at the company in leadership of the Strategic Technology and Transformation practice across Europe, based in London.  He became head of EDS' (A.T. Kearney’s parent at that time) global consulting practice.  Romil moved on to become a founder and managing director of Infosys Consulting. He also led Infosys’ global system integration business from late 2007 until 2009. He was named PRGX’s President and Chief Executive Office in January 2009. In the years he has been at PRGX, he has been instrumental in the continued success of the company. In an interview with The New York Times, he was asked to speak on the culture he created at the company. He says,

“It probably sounds like an exaggeration, but in some way, shape or form, I spend about 50 percent of my time communicating, whether that’s externally or internally. You’ve got to be able to do it consistently, and with passion.”

Last year, Romil was named one of the most influential people in financial operation by the Institute of Financial Operations.  He interviewed with  Sean Farrell of The Independent and Bloomberg in a CEO Sitdown session regarding the turnaround of PRGX, and also.  In June, he was inducted as a new board member to the Carter Center, a board composed of representatives from the leadership of Atlanta and Georgia Businesses.
