Strong growth – focus on digital-led industries and rapid pivot to remote
In addition to recognition by Everest Group, 2020 has already been an important year for Majorel – especially since the company was only launched in January 2019 – with significant growth in terms of its global delivery footprint and capabilities:
“During 2020, in addition to shifting the majority of our 53,000+ people around the world to work safely from home, we’ve also grown significantly – 5,000+ new colleagues, new delivery centers in the US and EMEA, and we’ve acquired ISILIS, a BFSI digital services provider in France” said Thomas Mackenbrock. “Since Majorel launched, in 2019, our focus has been on digital-led verticals, particularly High Tech/Internet and BFSI, which are proving to be so essential during the Coronavirus pandemic. These sectors now represent more than half of our global revenues.””
