Outsourcing industry stalwarts and NOA past and present directors Nigel Roxburgh, Rory Graham, and Rob Aylott today announce their appointment at Bluerock Consulting, where they have re-united to launch the strategic Source-to-Service practice for this UK based boutique consultancy that specialises in the management of change within the financial services sector.
Each adds over 20 years of sourcing experience to Bluerock. Much of their shared vision on Best Practice was developed together during their tenure on the National Outsourcing Association (NOA) Board. Their central positioning of the NOA opensource Best Practice framework at Bluerock bears testament to this background.
Outsourcing veteran Nigel Roxburgh is one of the founding members of the NOA and currently holds the position of Research Director, heading up this industry body's research initiatives into outsourcing business issues as well as running its thriving financial services Special Interest Group. Nigel has recently held senior positions at Accenture and Xansa and is a specialist in outsourcing in the banking, investment and insurance sectors.
Commercial strategist Rory Graham recently left the legal profession - having held Partner positions at a number of legal firms including Bird and Bird, and Baker McKenzie - to make his foray in the broader world of outsourcing consultancy at Bluerock. Rory is a past Board member of the NOA and held the position of Legal Director.
Seasoned outsourcing industry professional, Rob Aylott, was a sourcing practice leader at both KPMG and Orbys and brings a wealth of deal strategy and offshoring expertise and received an NOA lifetime achievement award in recognition of his industry standing.
Kevin Webb, Bluerock's Head of Technology, and former Partner and Consulting Director at KPMG comments: "With so much experience under their belts, having Nigel, Rory and Rob join Bluerock will get our new sourcing practice off to a flying start."
Additionally, Chief Executive, Julian Sawyer, puts this in its strategic context by commenting: "Bluerock has aggressive growth plans over the next five years and having a team which is highly knowledgeable about financial services sourcing will be crucial to achieve our vision. This represents another exciting step in our development."
