Vidya Ravichandran is the Founder and President of GlowTouch, a global customer care and business process outsourcing (BPO) enterprise that offers contact center, back office, and technology outsourcing solutions. GlowTouch was founded around 2 decades ago with 3 employees and has grown to about 2300 employees in 5 locations across India, the Dominican Republic, and the United States. In her leadership role, Vidya is devoted to four complimentary vocations: adding value to her clients’ bottom line; enhancing their customers’ experiences; providing her employees with a workplace where they will thrive; and supporting her local and international communities. She manages all four endeavors with a “People First” mindset.
In addition to steering GlowTouch, Vidya is deeply committed to several ethical, enduring philanthropic causes and non-profit boards in education and the arts.
