"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 the team from Boeing.”
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.
“IAOP applauds the Boeing team for developing best practices and solutions that add greater value to their outsourcing relationships,” said Debi Hamill, IAOP CEO. “It's because of teams like Boeing’s that this industry continues to evolve and grow.”
