Tek Appoints Global Supply Chain Expert, Noel Finnegan, as Vice President of Operations for Europe

MADRID, SPAIN--(Marketwire - June 18, 2008) - Tek Translation International, a worldwide provider of business solutions to meet globalization needs, today announced the appointment of Noel Finnegan as Vice President of Operations, Europe. Based in Madrid, process-centric Finnegan will manage the day-to-day operations of Tek's multilingual regional production center for European customers. He will be tasked with further streamlining Tek's globalization processes using the global supply chain model to strengthen the links between centralized vendor management, consistent QA, efficient globalization services and our on-demand delivery system, the Tek OneWorld Platform.

With over 17 years experience in the globalization industry, 9 of which were spent at LionBridge Technologies and culminated in his role as general manager, Noel has served most recently as operations director at Merrill Brink International, Galway, Ireland.

"Noel's firm commitment to process optimization and his extensive experience in supply chain, vendor and operations management makes him the ideal candidate for Tek at this time of extensive global expansion," says Renato Pontes, Director of Operations. "His skills are a perfect fit as Tek continues to link its on-demand globalization platform technology and tools with its vendor management, processes and services."

As part of its follow the sun strategy, Tek has centralized multilingual regional offices in each main time zone to support customers in that time zone: Madrid for Europe, Rio for the Americas and Beijing for Asia. Each office shares the same delivery system, the Tek OneWorld Platform, so that customers, suppliers and Tek staff all access one streamlined system.

Because life science, IT and manufacturing companies operate under very different regulations, procedures and pressures, Tek also has specialized vertical business units for these three segments in each region. With knowledgeable project managers, linguists and industry-specific workflow and QA methods, these units reduce set-up time, cut down on errors and optimize processes to release high-quality translated products to market quickly.

"Tek has the structures in place to support the kind of operational efficiency needed to handle the rapid demand for globalization solutions," says Noel Finnegan. "The next few years in this industry are going to be very exciting and I look forward to working towards Tek's ongoing success."
