Top Offshore IT Outsourcing Industry Veteran Joins Auriga

1/9/2004 - Auriga, an American-Russian provider of offshore, offsite, and onshore software development services, announced that it attracted one of the top business development managers in the offshore industry.

Bartley R. (Bart) Higgins is appointed to Senior Account Executive and will be responsible for developing strategic relationships with IT executives. Bart joins Auriga from Infosys Technologies Ltd., one of the largest Indian offshore outsourcing providers, where he spent six years as one of the top salespeople in the company's history. He worked with companies in the financial services, healthcare, retail and telecom industries and established numerous satisfied customer accounts. Prior to Infosys, Bart acquired hands-on experience in various echelons within IT companies from programming and project management to CEO.
