Outsource Partners International Forms European Advisory Board

Bangalore, Karnataka, India

Outsource Partners International, Inc. (OPI), a leading
professional services firm dedicated solely to finance and accounting outsourcing, announced the formation of a European Advisory Board. The Advisory Board, which brings together several of Europe's most experienced and respected business leaders, will work hand-in-hand with OPI leadership to guide OPI's growth and development throughout the UK and Europe.

OPI Advisory Board members include:
-- Richard Greenhalgh MA FRSA - Richard spent more than 30 years with Unilever, living and working in a number of countries around the world, finally being Chairman of Unilever UK until his retirement in 2004. Richard acts as Chairman of the OPI Advisory Board.
-- Bruce Thew - Bruce hails from HR outsourcer Ceridian Group, where he was an Executive Vice President and President of Ceridian International HR Services. Bruce holds a number of Non
executive positions in the Outsourcing Market and was named OPI's European President in mid 2006.
-- Sir Ian Magee - Sir Ian has held such distinguished public sector posts as Second Permanent Secretary and Chief Operating Officer for the Department of Constitutional Affairs, Head of Profession for Operational Delivery across the civil service, Chief Executive of the Court Service, Chief Executive of the Information Technology Services Agency, Director of the Benefits Agency, Acting Chief Executive of the Benefits Agency, and Private Secretary to the Minister for Social Security.
-- Paul Turner - Paul is an accomplished leader having served in such top management positions as President of EMEA at Convergys Corporation, Group HR Business Director at Lloyds TSB, Vice President at Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) and Director at BT. Paul is currently Professor and Executive in Residence at Nottingham Business School.
-- Alan Bates - Alan has served in top leadership roles since the 1970's at companies including Hoskyn's Group, which is now part of CAP Gemini, AGB Information Systems and BellCableMedia.
He is now a non-executive Director of a number of companies and has taken 5 companies to the market in recent times.

The main role of the Advisory board is not the usual governance task, but a far more dynamic one of business development in a very strategic framework. Therefore the Boards main activity is introducing OPI to the marketplace including potential users, sourcing advisors, analysts and the media. The Advisory Board has already begun its work in the European marketplace, and is hosting several educational events for companies looking to realize the benefits and efficiencies offered through outsourcing.

Richard Greenhalgh, Chairman of the OPI Advisory Board, noted, "As we meet with companies and they learn about the potential savings and quality improvements possible with outsourcing, and, importantly, the maturity of finance and accounting outsourcing, it is no longer "whether to outsource" but "when and with whom to partner." Cost savings of 35-50% coupled with best practice financial governance and information cannot be ignored."

Bruce Thew, European President of Outsource Partners International and a member of the European Advisory Board notes, "Having come from HR outsourcing provider Ceridian Group, I am keenly aware of the marketplace for outsourcing. Finance and accounting is poised for mass adoption, as providers, us as OPI, have fine tuned their service offerings, addressing all key issues to the point that the business model is proven, with 100% of OPI clients willing to be advocates for the efficiencies and improvements delivered."
