NEW YORK, NEW YORK--(Marketwire - July 7, 2010) - Computershare (ASX:CPU) -

Computershare Governance Services (CGS) has expanded its North American footprint with the establishment of a Client Services team in Computershare's San Francisco office to add to the Connecticut and Canadian offices. This new location will serve to support the many CGS clients located in California and the US West Coast region.

"We believe face to face time with our customers is important and San Francisco provides a great hub to connect with our West Coast customers," said Andrew J. Moore, Head of CGS North America & Asia-Pac. "This new team will only add to the quality and depth of the service we can provide our customers. We already have the best service team in the industry and we are excited to add San Francisco to our global infrastructure."

The initial team is comprised of Project Management, Client Support and Client Development personnel. This team will also aid in the delivery of the CGS global support service, which is backed by teams in the EMEA and ASIA-PAC regions and the other CGS North American offices.

This new location will be staffed by several industry veterans. Melissa Johnson is one member of our team who is relocating from Connecticut and brings over five years of entity management and board portal experience to this new team. Additional staff will be added as demand grows.
