In the news release, "Alexander Mann Solutions Founder Named 2010 HRO Superstar" issued on 12 Jan 2010 08:00 GMT, by Alexander Mann Solutions over PR Newswire, we are advised by a representative of the company that the quotation by Elliot Clark, Chairman and CEO, in the third paragraph, should have read "Our provider superstars are those individuals who are shaping the direction of the HRO industry. Rosaleen has been leading the way in the industry since it began and this award recognises this achievement. The growth of Alexander Mann Solutions to its current position as a worldwide industry leader in breadth of service has been relentless. Ultimately, they continue to set the global standard that other companies aspire to achieve. We're pleased to welcome Rosaleen to the 2010 HRO Superstar list.", rather than "TBA." as originally issued inadvertently. Complete, corrected release follows:

, /PRNewswire/ -- HRO Today magazine, the leading Human Resources (HR) magazine read by over 70,000 HR executives and leaders worldwide has published its list of 2010 Superstars which included Alexander Mann Solutions (AMS) founder and CEO, Rosaleen Blair as the only non-US based Superstar in the "Providers" category.

Rosaleen Blair is widely credited with pioneering the concept of recruitment process outsourcing and continues to lead from the front, with her vision and creativity driving the business and its people forward to further success. The addition to the 2010 HRO Superstar list is yet further recognition of a career of achievements that include highlights such as winning Ernst & Young's London Business Products & Services Entrepreneur of the Year in 2006, and the prestigious Veuve Clicquot Business Woman of the Year in 2007.

Elliot Clark, Chairman and CEO of SharedXpertise Media, LLC, the publisher of HRO Today magazine, said, "Our provider superstars are those individuals who are shaping the direction of the HRO industry. Rosaleen has been leading the way in the industry since it began and this award recognises this achievement. The growth of Alexander Mann Solutions to its current position as a worldwide industry leader in breadth of service has been relentless. Ultimately, they continue to set the global standard that other companies aspire to achieve. We're pleased to welcome Rosaleen to the 2010 HRO Superstar list."

This achievement follows on from Alexander Mann Solutions significant achievements in HRO Today's Baker's Dozen 2009 awards, where they scooped the Global Market Leader and Breadth of Services Leader awards.

Rosaleen Blair commented, "It's a tremendous honour to be recognised by HRO Today with this award. From the outset, our culture of client focus and driving innovation has defined Alexander Mann Solutions very being. We never settle for second best and constantly challenge the norm, making sure our clients get exactly what they require and more."

Alexander Mann Solutions clients were also included in the highly coveted list of Practitioner Superstars. These include, Denise Edwards of Vodafone, Alyson Sparks of Deloitte, Franck Thibault of GeoServices and Max Donley of MedImmune.

These wins further confirm Alexander Mann Solutions' position as the world's most geographically diverse provider of RPO services, and demonstrate the consistently high standards that AMS and its clients offer in a global business environment.

    The criteria for inclusion in the Superstar lists were as follows

    - Provider Superstars are chosen for the innovations they bring
      to the marketplace. Sometimes they're prodded by clients; other times,
      they're thinking creatively, offering services and solving issues that
      are more cost-effective and of a higher quality of service than those
      around them. In addition, they often act as consultants to businesses
      and help buyers make necessary changes to policy that helps not only
      their customers business, but also their own.

    - Practitioner Superstars demonstrate a vision for building the
      most effective HR services. HR outsourcing used to be a gamble, and
      many past pioneering organisations helped to bring outsourcing into the
      mainstream. They've become more sophisticated about deals, more
      definitive about service level agreements, and more attentive to
      development of their governance models.
