Bentonville, Arkansas Officially Welcomes UST Global to the City's Business Community

June 8, 2011 - Bentonville, AR

With a symbolic ribbon-cutting ceremony held at UST Global's offices in Bentonville, Arkansas, on Monday, May 23rd, Mayor Bob McCaslin and his team formally welcomed the international IT services firm to the Bentonville business community. The event took place on UST Global's one-year anniversary in Bentonville and marked the company's growing presence in the Northwest Arkansas business community. UST Global is the first IT company in the region to be formally inducted into Bentonville's active business community.

General Manager Bharath Krishnaswamy led Mayor McCaslin and other guests on a tour of the facility while they spoke about various aspects of UST Global and its commitment to the communities in which it lives and works. The discussion also revolved around Colors, the company program that enables employees to continuously expand the depth and quality of their talents, as well as to receive training and mentorship in leadership skills that contribute both to personal and organizational growth.

A key highlight of the evening was a live videoconference with Mary Johnson, Director, Corporate Social Responsibility, who spoke from UST Global's center in Manila about the company's mission of transforming lives. Mary's message was reinforced by an inspiring video featuring the company's founder, the late GA Menon.

"It's no surprise to me that UST is chosen as a strategic partner to some of the world's largest organizations," said Mayor McCaslin. "You share a similar value system and a passion for excellence. I look forward to supporting you in your exciting growth journey and thanks for choosing Bentonville."

"We appreciate how welcoming Bentonville has been to UST Global since we first came here just one year ago," noted Krishnaswamy. "It's been a pleasure to get involved with this community and we treasure the many positive relationships we've developed."

Joe Nalkara, President of UST, said, "At UST Global we seek to make a meaningful difference to the communities in which we live and work. Bentonville stands as a model of an engaged, involved community and we look forward to deepening our relationships through the years."
