There are many other Indians heading the businesses at relatively smaller companies abroad, specially in the IT sector, but at least 12 large companies have got India-born chief executives.

Interestingly, the total size of businesses managed by just 10 Indian-origin CEOs globally exceed the total exports from India, which stood at about $300 billion in the last fiscal and is estimated to be around $325 billion in the current fiscal ending next month.

According to human resource experts, professionals in India have become global professionals. The technical skills and the behavioural patterns of Indians executives make them very much adaptable to any kind of situation they come across.

Experts believe that Indians’ focus on good education and ability to work in difficult situations is aiding to this rising trend and more and more Indians could rise to top positions at global companies in the near future.
