Mr. Poston has been involved with Shared Services & Outsourcing Network’s (SSON) annual flagship event, Shared Services & Outsourcing Week (North America), since its launch 17 years ago. Everyone is familiar with him as the charismatic chairman of a decade plus. As chairman, Mr. Poston has been an invaluable support, providing his expertise in guiding content and by keeping things running smoothly on site. He will serve as the chair for the 17th annual SSOW event in Orlando, starting March 4, 2013.
Sarah Clayton, global head of SSON, comments, "working with ScottMadden over the last decade plus has been an important anchor for Shared Services & Outsourcing Week. Led by Sam Poston, a pioneer in shared services consulting, we've watched as the firm has cut a swathe through the North American market, producing stellar examples of best practice captive centers. A handful of ScottMadden's clients have repetitively and easily won SSOW Awards every year. Sam is hands down the most genial, personable, and wise executive SSON has had the pleasure of working with in the USA—and we work with quite a few! He is the face of SSOW North America and has been a clever mentor to us for many years. We've counted ourselves very lucky."
Naomi Secor, conference producer of Shared Services & Outsourcing Week, adds, "Sam's level of expertise, motivation and enthusiasm for Shared Services knows no boundaries. It was an absolute pleasure working with him over the years on several shared service events, which he chaired and played an instrumental role in developing."
