Founder’s Principles

Core values of Customer Focus, Collaboration and Integrity are the foundation of QuEST

Message from Ajit Prabhu, Chairman & CEO


Aspiration is a deeper desire to do better for all, all the time. Thinking Big, the idea of creating a better future for all should drive one’s everyday actions. The idea is to do great things for customers, employees, shareholders, and the community to make a difference for everyone. We aim for what is impossible and make it happen by thinking differently and innovating continuously.


The most important principle for our organization’s growth is Humility. If one is not vigilant, success could breed arrogance, and this is the biggest impediment to sustainable growth. It’s essential to learn to respect failures, build an open and transparent culture, and continually learn from mistakes. Humility is essential and is the attribute that is most needed in times of difficulty. 


Aspiring but not acting with enthusiasm and energy will not work in the long term. Hunger is about getting things done consistently and quickly on a day to day basis. If people of an organization are ‘Hungry’ and willing to ‘roll up their sleeves’ when required, remove all obstacles and go the last mile, we believe that organization will survive and thrive.


These three foundational principles work in tandem, not in isolation. The Aspiration to think big, the Hunger to build a learning culture and empower decision making, coupled with ‘roll up your sleeves’ and get things done with humility to accept and learn from failures and respect people, are the three ingredients when adopted and practiced regularly will lead an organization to greatness.

Our Values Make Us Your Most Trusted Partner

We care about your business as if it were our own. We actively think about our customers’ business. We proactively present ideas that can help achieve their institutional goals and then we invest behind those ideas to bring them to reality, to make the impossible possible.

Relationships are a critical distinction for us – we’re in it for the long haul with our customers, and we invest in that commitment. And while that might not be a central reason why clients first hire us, it’s essential to why they stay with us. 

As a company, and as individuals, we are committed to doing what is right, for our people, our customers and the communities in which we live and work. We have always aspired to be more than just a business; we aspire to be an unstoppable force for good. And that commitment does not stop at our doors. Rather, it shapes our entire corporate culture. When something is not right, we want to hear it, we want to know about it. That is how we grow and do better.

We are a global organization, and without a solid foundation of collaboration, things would fall apart. Our teams work closely to enable business continuity, sustainability and to address critical issues that shape future business - all of which ultimately are intended to benefit our customers. We encourage a culture of collaboration within the organization and externally with customers, vendors, and stakeholders.

Andrew Lewis | Collaboration

One critical factor for the success of any business is Ethical Compliance. Making responsible decisions with honesty, fairness, and respect for others is vital to our continued sustainability, resilience, and growth. Operating ethically is part of who we are; it is important to our company, our clients, and our community.

Building a Trusted thinking partnership and sustaining market leadership is exciting – customers want partners who continually bring new ideas and execute flawlessly. They want partners who can see the big picture, think innovatively about solutions and bring them forward with confidence. Achievement of the vision only gets accomplished through daily execution of the small elements that lead to the larger goal.  The mantra is to “get the little things right to make the big things happen”.

- James Gallo | Agility 

‘Care for People’ is all about having a holistic view of stakeholders, primarily the society we live in. What we engineers do every day affects billions of people. We care for society by caring for our customers. We care for our customers by doing the best job for them, and delivering high-quality service on time. We care for our people by bringing the best out of them and giving them the opportunity to learn.

- Shrikant Naik | Care for People

This is multidimensional. It is important to be honest and respectful to colleagues, customers, and stakeholders while also openly sharing the way forward. We proactively share information with each other and across groups with candour to accomplish common goals and learnings for QuEST.

-  Steve Gerber | Open & Transparent

We believe in investing and being at par with the industry by Continuous Learning. Learning about our customers' evolving needs and acting accordingly finding new trends, and enabling our customers by learning new technologies, equipping ourselves with software capabilities, and implementing them is pivotal.

- Dennis Mayhew | Continuous Learning
