Catching up

I met Stephanie Moore, CMO, UST Global today at NILF. I had first met Stephanie more than a decade back when she was an analyst at Giga and I was handling analyst relations (as H-Corporate Markleting) at Infosys. In fact, Infosys was the first Indian offshore based company to start an analyst program and Stephanie was one of the analysts I met during our first road show. Much water has flown under the bridge since. I moved out of Infosys to co-found Prayag in 2001, while Stephanie moved out of the analyst world to the corporate world to become CMO, UST Global.
When I asked her how the transition had been, she said it was great and she was enjoying the new role a lot. UST Global was recently in the news for opening a center at Manila. From the looks of it, the company is poised for growth. It will be interesting, as an industry observer to watch out for this company! more
