Aparup Sengupta of CSP, who is joining as the Executive Chairman of the Board, said, "Minacs has the ingredients of occupying a formidable and preeminent position in the customer experience value chain, which will be the foundation for growth for our Customers, Employees, and Shareholders. We are very excited to work with its outstanding management team to realize our shared growth ambitions for the company."

The Managing Director of Aditya Birla Nuvo, Dr. Rakesh Jain, said, "Our association with Minacs began in 2006, and goes back earlier with the Aditya Birla Group's entry into IT-ITeS as a sector. This relationship does not come to an end here, as our Group companies will continue to work with Minacs given its domain expertise and reputation as a globally respected business solutions provider."

With the completion of the acquisition, Minacs also announced that CEO Deepak Patel has moved on to pursue other career interests in the United States. He was CEO at Minacs since 2008. Deepak not only successfully consolidated Minacs' book of business and regional presence, but grew it to its status today as a respected global business solutions company. President and Chief Operating Officer, Anil Bhalla has taken over charge as CEO.

Anil Bhalla, the new CEO of Minacs, said, "We thank the Aditya Birla Group for its support, and Deepak for his leadership and contribution to Minacs' evolution. Taking it from here, I look forward to build on our strong culture of operational excellence and deep industry expertise, along with a renewed focus on technology innovation to deliver even stronger business results for our clients.
