Earlier this month, TMP announced a broad reorganization of the Company into three geographic regions: North America, Europe and Asia Pacific. The new regional structure will enable TMP to better capitalize on the synergies between its business segments, further enhance its ability to cross-sell its diversified product line to existing clients, and drive revenue and profitability growth. The reorganization allows the Company to adopt a shared services approach to information technology, accounting and other functions that will further reduce redundancy and increase efficiency, while establishing regionally consolidated operations that standardize processes and procedures across country borders.
"We are quickly executing on the reorganization strategy announced just a few weeks ago and are extremely confident in the top-notch management team we've assembled," said Jim Treacy President and COO of TMP Worldwide. "Many of these executives have been maturing in their leadership roles with TMP, and their collective wisdom and expertise will be a tremendous foundation on which to continue growing all areas of our North America business."
