BOSTON--(CCNMatthews - Sep 9, 2005) -

Yankee Group has named veteran telecommunications industry expert Jeff Leiper as director of its Canadian research operations. Based in Ottawa, Leiper will lead the Canadian team as it provides research and services to a growing roster of clients in Canada and beyond.

The former editor-in-chief and publisher of Decima Reports, Leiper joins Yankee Group as a seasoned observer of the technological, regulatory and business developments resulting from the IP-everything revolution. Prior to Decima Reports, he was a technology journalist and wrote extensively about the telecommunications industry. Recently, he specialized in following legal and regulatory developments in broadcasting, new media, telecommunications and copyright law.

"We are excited to bring an influential industry veteran on board as director of our Canadian research program," said Yankee Group CEO Brian Adamik. "Jeff's insight and broad industry expertise will bring greater value to our clients and further strengthen Yankee Group's role in the Canadian market."

"I look forward to working alongside Yankee Group's team of talented analysts to bring a global understanding of technology business issues to the Canadian marketplace," said Leiper. "In the coming months, regulatory issues will give way to practical consideration of services, applications and technology choices. Clients of Yankee Group's Canadian Market Strategies will benefit from such choices with the comprehensive expertise we provide."
