While working out of the London corporate headquarters of supermajor BP in 2008, Yagya Ahuja realised that finding consultants and the right pool of talent for the company’s global operations was becoming increasingly challenging amid a booming oil industry.

In those days, oil prices had risen to almost $120 per barrel and skilled manpower shortages were hampering the workflow of many international energy giants.

A few months later, Ahuja ventured into uncharted territory, tapping his entrepreneurial skills to found outsourcing company GET Global Group, dedicated exclusively to the oil and gas industry.
