History[edit]

Originally under the name GCI (Global Consultants, Inc.), Collabera opened for business in 1991, providing information technology services to companies worldwide.[8] The company was purchased by Hiten Patel in 1997 for $2 million and grew into a $520 million company by 2014.[9]

Shortly thereafter, in 2007, GCI began a series of company acquisitions, including IVL India (for SAP Services).,[10] Planet Asia,[11] and Blue Hammock (for Strategic Consulting).[12]

In 2008, GCI changed its name to Collabera.[13][14]

In 2012, Collabera began a period of corporate expansion and reorganization as their IT services wing became a $100 million section of the company, which was by then worth $500 million overall. The company built a third development center (along with existing ones in Bangalore and Trivandrum) named "Collabera House" in Vadodara, India, with plans to open another in the country.[15] The following year, Raj Mamodia was appointed as Collabera's new CEO.[16] Then, in 2014, Collabera spun off its IT services wing into the subsidiary company Brillio, while Collabera retained its staffing service business. Raj Mamodia was transitioned to the role of CEO of Brillio, and Hiten Patel resumed his previous role as Collabera's CEO.[17][18]
