SEATTLE, Feb. 21, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Colliers International Group Inc. (Nasdaq:CIGI) (TSX:CIGI) is pleased to announce that it has been honored as a 2017 Global Outsourcing 100 company by IAOP®, an honor the company has earned for 12 straight years, more than any other real estate services provider. Colliers has been named to the list each year since its inception.

The 2017 Global Outsourcing 100 and The World’s Best Outsourcing Advisors recognize preferred outsourcing service providers and advisors. Companies of all sizes, from around the world and across the entire outsourcing industry—information technology outsourcing, business process outsourcing, facility services, real estate, design, testing, manufacturing and logistics just to name a few—are considered for inclusion on the lists.

“We are very happy to receive this prestigious recognition from IAOP again this year,” said Dylan Taylor, President and COO, Colliers International. “Our consistent recognition as a trusted advisor speaks to the commitment we have at Colliers to always provide best-in-class service.”

“Choosing the right partners is more important than ever. Companies that outsource, not only in the traditional sense but also through the wide array of the ever-changing collaborative business models, are scrutinizing their providers very closely,” said Debi Hamill, IAOP CEO. “The GO100 is the definitive guide to help companies research and compare service providers with whom they are considering relationships.”

Judging for inclusion on the lists is based on a rigorous scoring criterion that includes an independent review by a panel of IAOP customer members with extensive experience in selecting outsourcing service providers and advisors for their organizations. The 2017 panel is led by Hamill and IAOP Chairman Michael F. Corbett, and it includes:

  • Daniel Beimborn, Professor, Frankfurt School of Finance & Management
  • Teresa Harris, COP, Global Supplier Relationship Manager, GE
  • Mary D. Lewis, Sourcing Manager II, Supply Chain Management, Sprint
  • Cheryl Seely, COP, Manager, Thomson Reuters
