The International Association of Outsourcing Professionals® (IAOP®) has elected Newmark Grubb Knight Frank to the Leader category for The 2013 Global Outsourcing 100® service providers list.
“As 2013 begins to see moderate growth in the economy, choosing the right outsourcing partners will be more important than ever,” said IAOP® Chairman Michael Corbett. “The Global Outsourcing 100® and the World’s Best Outsourcing Advisors® lists help companies easily identify partners that will help them emerge as leaders.”
“Being named to the Global Outsourcing 100® is an exceptional honor for our company,” said Michael Ippolito, chairman of Newmark Grubb Knight Frank Global Corporate Services. “It’s especially rewarding for our firm to be recognized by an organization of global reach that includes such a comprehensive mix of industries.”
IAOP® annually conducts an independent assessment of the capabilities of outsourcing service providers and advisors, and based on this assessment, publishes The Global Outsourcing 100® and The World’s Best Outsourcing Advisors® and various sub-lists. Each company selected for The Global Outsourcing 100® is recognized by IAOP® on its website (www.iaop.org) and at various events and programs throughout the year.
Judging was based on a set of measurable standards as well as an evaluation by a panel of industry-recognized outsourcing leaders led by Jagdish Dalal, managing director of Thought Leadership, IAOP® and chairman of the judges’ panel. Leaders, for the purposes of these assessments, are companies with more than U.S. $50 million in revenue for their most recent fiscal year, or more than 5,000 employees.
“As applicants continually raise the bar and as the outsourcing industry continues to grow and mature in many markets, competition is tougher,” said Mr. Dalal. “Being named to The Global Outsourcing 100® and The World’s Best Outsourcing Advisors® is a great achievement, particularly given the strong competition, and we are proud to recognize Newmark Grubb Knight Frank for its excellence.”
