“The Philippines is of strategic importance to us, as part of our global delivery strategy, and we expect to continue to invest in the Philippines as we grow our business,” said Keshav R. Murugesh, Group CEO, WNS. “We have enjoyed a fruitful partnership with Paxys for over three years and would welcome the opportunity to work with them again in the future.”
