Majesco Adds Pai to Leadership Team

Staff Writer | March 10, 2017

Majesco announces the expansion of the leadership team with the appointment of Ganesh Pai as the executive vice president of Majesco Consulting Services. In this role, Pai will lead consulting services growth strategy including enterprise consulting, data, and digital at the forefront.  

In addition, Bill Freitag will be leading a new area for the company as the executive vice president of Strategic Programs.  In this role, Freitag will be working with Majesco’s largest customers in support of the strategic transformation programs, leveraging his business transformation experience.

“The insurance industry is undergoing a major transformation to meet changing customer expectations, take advantage of disruptive technology trends, and overcome the threat of new and unconventional competition,” says Pai. “With insurance framework and asset-based offering across consulting, data, digital, and IT services, Majesco is positioned to help carriers accelerate their transformation journey. I am excited to join Majesco and look forward to working with my leadership team to successfully execute on our growth strategy”.

With over 26 years of experience, Pai is a successful and results-oriented leader spanning global P&L management, sales, marketing, and service delivery in the information technology and business process outsourcing industry. Pai was most recently at Genpact as vice president and global head of IT insurance business unit, following 17 years at Mphasis and eight years at Wipro. 

In each of these roles, Pai contributed to their growth across multiple geographies. He holds an undergraduate degree in Electrical Engineering from Bangalore University, India, and an MBA from the University of Chicago’s Booth School of Business and is a certified volunteer of CERT (Citizens Emergency Response Team) supporting first responders in the event of a major disaster.

“Our growing number of strategic programs with large insurers requires increased senior executive involvement and experience to help our customers achieve strategic business objectives. Leveraging my extensive enterprise strategy and consulting experience in similar, complex programs will provide additional support for our customers in their business transformation journey,” says Freitag.

Prior to joining Majesco, Freitag was CEO and managing partner of Agile Technologies (acquired by Majesco in 2015). He founded the company in 1997 to meet increasingly complex business processing and information technology requirements. Prior to founding Agile, he played a key role in the divestiture of Crum & Foster from Xerox Corporation and served as director of enterprise consulting for a $300 million professional services firm with 4,000 professionals in seven countries. Freitag has a B.S. in Mathematics from Fairfield University and attended the Executive Education program at Harvard Business School.

“Ganesh is a wonderful addition to our leadership team to help our growth strategy,” says Ketan Mehta, CEO and Co-Founder of Majesco. “His extensive insurance experience and success in managing insurance consulting services businesses for leading global organizations will strengthen our presence, commitment and capacity to introduce and deliver our solutions. With a growing customer base with strategic programs, Bill’s leadership and strategic program expertise will strengthen our relationships and long-term commitment to our customers.”
