Outsourcing proves a winner for Young Rich lister Scott Stavretis

Young entrepreneur Scott Stavretis has a big goal for his business outsourcing and call centre business Acquire BPO: for it to earn as much revenue from the US as it does in Australia, and do it within three years.

For now, the business derives about 80 per cent of its income from its Australian customers, but such has been the growth of a business that employs almost 7000 staff, mostly in the Philippines and the Dominican Republic, that Stavretis will debut on BRW Young Rich this year with an estimated $46 million fortune.

A serial entrepreneur who started in business at the age of 16 by establishing the first internet service provider on Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula 20 years ago, Stavretis, 36, is at the helm of or owns significant stakes in five technology-focused companies.

He is the chief executive of Acquire BPO, which he owns with Melbourne entrepreneur and property developer Larry Kestelman, the owner of the National Basketball League, and also owns Animation1, a 3D animation studio that works for architects and property developers, and a fledgling mobile phone business, Yomojo.
