FAREHAM, ENGLAND--(Marketwire - August 18, 2008) - Turing SMI Group Ltd., a certified global leader in Business Service Management (BSM) solutions, has announced today the appointment of Daryle Burt as director of TuringSMI's Strategic Business Unit (SBU) for Business Service Management (BSM). Burt will be responsible for working closely with the Strategic Business Unit for BSM and will directly manage and oversee all of TuringSMI's top BSM accounts. By providing strategic, commercial and operational insight, Burt's expertise will help further develop and expand TuringSMI's BSM presence through staff recruitment, training and acquisition.

"We are delighted to bring Burt on board, as he will be a vital addition to our management team," said Phil Brooks, CEO of TuringSMI. "His experience and relationships in the sector are second to none. In the coming months Burt will play an instrumental role by helping us strengthen and execute our sales strategy for our Strategic Business Unit and BSM customers worldwide. I feel confident that Burt's vision will play a fundamental role in driving TuringSMI's BSM sales and strengthening our presence in the global IT management software market."

Burt is a veteran of the BSM market sector and brings over 14 years of experience in strategic sales to TuringSMI. Burt has previously held sales management positions at BMC, where he developed and maintained a global sales program for customers in the mid-west and Canada. Prior to joining BMC, Burt held a senior sales position at Quality Assured Label, Inc., where he managed sales in excess of $30 million, including global accounts such as the Gillette, Unilever and Procter & Gamble.

Burt will work closely with Rob Chippendale, TuringSMI's worldwide sales and marketing director in charge of the global sales team. With support from TuringSMI's Strategic Business Unit, both Burt and Chippendale will work to develop new markets and strategic clients for TuringSMI's BSM, Telecoms, Managed Services and Capital Markets products and services.

"I'm looking forward to helping TuringSMI from a strategic and customer support level. There's a lot of room for opportunity here, as the BSM market and TuringSMI's potential for growth are both thriving," said Burt. "The company has a notorious reputation for delivering the finest and latest BSM offerings to its customers. And with the recent acquisitions of EMS and generationE, I'm confident we will continue to become a more prominent and distinguished player in North America and globally."
