According to Kirk Laughlin, founder and editorial director of Nearshore Americas, "David brings a wealth of consulting experience as well as deep practical knowledge in IT and finance, and he knows exactly how to compete and succeed on the competitive global playing field. Putting a priority on quality talent is paying dividends as the firm has secured more than 200 customers, both within Brazil and internationally." Laughlin adds, "Conscious of the need to diversify and inject increased value to service delivery, David and senior CPM Braxis leaders are also looking to expand their physical presence in the U.S. in the near future."

"On behalf of CPM Braxis, our employees and management team, I am thrilled to be recognized as a leading voice in Nearshore outsourcing," said Shpilberg. "We designed CPM Braxis from scratch four years ago as an employee based company with the priority to become a top ten player in the world. I believe we are well on our way."

The Top 50 Power Ranking was based on a four-month review process by the editorial team at Nearshore Americas, which followed receipt of hundreds of nominations last year. Criteria for placement on the list included: personal impact on the growth and visibility of outsourcing in the Americas; record of corporate or government achievement; dedication to raising industry standards and demonstrated initiative as an industry thought-leader.

In May, CPM Braxis was recognized for the second consecutive year as one of the world's top ranked IT outsourcing providers on the International Association of Outsourcing Professionals (IAOP) "2010 Global Outsourcing 100" List. In this year's list, CPM Braxis achieved the highest position achieved by a South American company and was cited for its "management capabilities" in the Services category.

Additionally, CPM Braxis was also named a "Top 50 Best Managed Global Outsourcing Vendor" in the 2009 Black Book of Outsourcing's customer satisfaction survey. "We were honored to be recognized on both prestigious lists and be ranked among the best companies in the world," said Shpilberg. "This celebrates the quality of our work and dedication to excellence by our 5,600 employees and partners."

The 2010 Top 50 Power List includes representation from 16 countries in the Western Hemisphere, including: Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Mexico, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Honduras, Guatemala, United States, Canada, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Cuba, Barbados and Jamaica.
