worldwide.

Tata

erves over 1,600 global service providers
and 50,000 corporate customers across the globe including more than 260 of the
top 2,000 MNCs
.


Tata

about $2.6

In the
last 10 years, Tata Communications more than doubled its employees and at
present manpower base stands at
7,800 people. This diversity is further
reflected in its global leadership team with executives in 14 cities across
nine countries.

The
Tata Communications transformation story is a matter of pride not just for all
of us in the company, but also for all our stakeholders; indeed, it is a matter
of pride for India that a global challenger in the hyper-competitive
communications space has been created in less than a decade. The Tata
Communications story is a great example of how a public-private partnership can
create real business value, not just in the Indian market, but globally. There
have been the natural ups and downs, coupled with so much more to achieve. The
journey has been truly worthwhile as a result of the support from one of the
best teams in the business
, said Vinod Kumar, MD & CEO, Tata
Communications
.


During
this decade, the company transformed from an India-centric, international voice
monopoly to a globally recognised, trans-national service provider. This shift
is the result of visionary leadership of the Tata group, coupled with the trust
of our various stakeholders, including the Government of India that continues
to own 26
percent equity
stake in Tata Communications.
