NEW YORK, Feb. 16, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Newmark Grubb Knight Frank has once again been selected by the International Association of Outsourcing Professionals® (IAOP®) to the Leader category for the 2016 Global Outsourcing 100® service providers list.
As the global, standard-setting association and advocate for outsourcing professionals and the organizations they support, the IAOP® annually produces The Global Outsourcing 100® and its sub-lists, which are essential references for companies seeking new and expanded relationships with the best companies in the industry. The lists comprise companies from around the world that provide the full spectrum of outsourcing services, including information technology, business process outsourcing, facility services, real estate and capital asset management, manufacturing and logistics. The companies showcased represent not only today's leaders but tomorrow's rising stars.
"Choosing the right partners is more important than ever. Companies that outsource, not only in the traditional sense but also through the wide array of the ever-changing, collaborative business models, are scrutinizing their providers very closely," said Debi Hamill, IAOP® CEO. "The GO100 is the definitive guide to help companies research and compare service providers with whom they are considering relationships."
"Being recognized again as a Global Outsourcing 100® company is an exceptional honor for our company," said Michael Ippolito, chairman of Newmark Grubb Knight Frank Global Corporate Services. "Our recurring presence on this list reflects the drive behind the NGKF team to deliver the firm's full-service platform to clients all over the world."
Judging was based on a rigorous scoring methodology that includes an independent review by a panel of IAOP® customer members with extensive experience in selecting outsourcing service providers and advisors for their organizations. In order to be eligible, companies must have generated revenue of over $50 million during the past year and/or had over 5,000 employees. Candidates were judged on their size and growth, customer references, awards and certifications, programs for innovation and corporate social responsibility.
"Buyers understand that there are hundreds of qualified service providers and advisors out there, but what they really need to understand is what makes each one exceptional," said Hamill. "The Global Outsourcing 100 and World's Best Advisors lists have done just that. We're proud to recognize Newmark Grubb Knight Frank for being among the highest rated companies."
