IAOP Announces Winners of Annual Global Excellence in Outsourcing Award for Innovative Practices in Creating Value from Collaborative Relationships
WarnerMedia, a Multinational Mass Media Corporation, and Georgia Technology Authority, a State IT Services Agency, to be Honored During OWS19
Teams from WarnerMedia and GTA will each present their award-winning submission to conference attendees during the event, which will include hundreds of professionals from around the globe. In addition, IAOP and its Academic Alliance Partners will create a mini case study of each winning submission so others may benefit from their success.
"WarnerMedia and the team involved are humbled to be selected by our peers for this prestigious award," said Alan Arenson, Director of Global Sourcing, WarnerMedia. "This award reflects the vision, planning, execution and dedication of all of WarnerMedia and not just the team being honored. Without the partnerships developed, both internally at our Divisions and with our providers, none of the successes achieved would have been realized."
"My team and I are extremely honored to receive this award from IAOP, especially since the focus is on innovation and creating value from collaborative relationships,"

"In the nine years of the GEO Award, we have continually raised the bar for nominees by establishing tougher qualifying criteria, which makes the 2019 winners truly exceptional,"
IAOP started the award program to distinguish outsourcing professional teams at customer organizations who have created innovative solutions and delivered great results for their companies.
"I'm particularly excited to recognize this year's GEO winners, as the award has a fresh focus on innovation and the value created through collaboration,"
