SHANGHAI, Nov. 3, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Bleum Inc., a China-based specialist IT outsourcing provider, announced today that it has appointed Seth Pinegar as Chief Financial Officer. Mr. Pinegar is assuming responsibility for corporate finance and strategic expansion, as Bleum enters its next phase of growth, having grown rapidly only via organic means in its first decade.
Bleum founder & CEO Eric Rongley said, "We are pleased to have Seth join us as we continue to accelerate our growth as the premier China-based outsourcing provider for MNC clients. With his prior experience, both in the technology services industry as well as corporate finance and M&A, he is a great addition to our management team. Additionally, his direct experience in China's rapidly growing technology services industry brings significant strategic perspective to Bleum, as does his experience in financial services, which adds to Bleum's strong mix of clients in this sector."
Mr. Pinegar commented, "Having already played a role in China's technology services industry evolution, I am very pleased to be joining a company that specializes in enhancing business value for its clients.

China's outsourcing industry is entering a new era, one of value-based delivery for clients, and one where value is defined by the quality of people working for our clients, not simply by the number of people."
