The Global Outsourcing 100® Follows a Meticulous Methodology

The 2021 Global Outsourcing 100® serves as a testimonial for companies seeking to expand their operations with the best companies in the tech landscape. This list is based on applications received; judging is based on a rigorous scoring methodology that includes an independent review by an independent panel of IAOP® customer members with extensive experience in selecting outsourcing service providers and advisors for their organizations.

The 2021 panel was led by IAOP® CEO, Debi Hamill and included:

  • Daniel Beimborn, Professor, Frankfurt School of Finance & Management
  • Teresa Harris, COP, Global Supplier Relationship Manager, GE
  • Mary D. Lewis, COP, Sourcing Manager II, Supply Chain Management, T-Mobile
  • Heiko Gewald, Professor, Neu-Ulm University of Applied Sciences
  • Mark Zammett, COP, former Senior Director, Globa Security Assessments, CIGN


“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 ever-changing collaborative business models, are scrutinizing their providers very closely. The Global Outsourcing 100® is the definitive guide to help companies research and compare service providers with whom they are considering relationships.”Debi Hamill, IAOP® CEO.

Prior to this, Fortech was recognized by Forbes and EY Romania for its entrepreneurial journey and was repeatedly included in Deloitte rankings as one of the fast-growing companies in the CEE region.
