"The early achievements gained through outsourcing are now commonplace,” said Bill Hall, Partner, Pretium Partners and Chair of IAOP’s Membership Committee. “Today’s greatest accomplishments are the result of the teams of people who creatively and effectively break new ground. Skilled people are the difference between routine results and breakthrough innovation or best practices. The GEO Award recognizes the people who made the difference. We are thrilled to honor both of these teams.”
IAOP started the award program to distinguish outsourcing professional teams at customer organizations who have advanced the field’s best practices, created innovative solutions and delivered great results for their companies.
“The GEO Award recognizes teams of people for creating exceptional accomplishments for their companies,” said Debi Hamill, IAOP CEO. “We are very excited to honor these teams. Their achievements in producing excellent business outcomes for their organizations have raised the bar for all of us.”
