IFSDG:  How long have you worked at NewGalexy?

Sarvarth:  I have been working with NewGalexy since 2006.

IFSDG:  How many people work at NewGalexy?

Sarvarth:  Our new Glasgow centre has 10 staff (within the first 4 weeks of its operations!) and we project that our Glasgow base will grow to 50 staff within the first 18 months. We've of course got more staff in India.

IFSDG:  What is your vision for NewGalexy in Glasgow?

Sarvarth:  We want to be the market leader in onshore legal process outsourcing (LPO) services in Europe with sector focuses on banking and finance; engineering and construction; oil and gas; and technology, media and telecommunication.

IFSDG:  What's a typical day for you?

Sarvarth:  Starts at 5.30 AM with calls to India and can end with conference calls to clients in California very late into the night. Long days (and nights)! 

IFSDG:  How many emails do you receive on an average day?

Sarvarth:  Haven't ever counted - but lots…

IFSDG:  Why did NewGalexy choose to locate in the IFSD in Glasgow?

Sarvarth:  The talent pool of lawyers available in Glasgow was really good, Glasgow has been a successful base for BPOs and KPOs and has great transportation links.

IFSDG:  Three good things about working in Glasgow?

Sarvarth:  Friendly, vibrant and "the great weather"

IFSDG:  What is your biggest business achievement to date?

Sarvarth:  I am hoping it would be the new Glasgow centre which we have just set up!

IFSDG:  What is the best investment you ever made?

Sarvarth:  Again, I hope the investment into the Glasgow centre might bear the fruits but other than that it would be investing in stocks in a booming South East Asian stock market in 2006 and 2007 before the stock market crashed! 

IFSDG:  Which business person or company do you most admire and why?

Sarvarth:  Steve Jobs. I think he was the Thomas Edison of this generation and not only was he a great innovator but perhaps the best marketer of the century!
