HfS Research announces two new analyst additions to boost data analytics and strategic research acumen


We’re excited to announce a couple of terrific new additions to the core research team at HfS. Our goal is to provide our research clients with a unique blend of “real world” sourcing expertise, backed up with real-time research, market data and analytics. We’re also working with multiple buyers to develop the industry’s first realistic transaction-based BPO pricing model.

To achieve these lofty ambitions, we’re pulling together a blend of quantitative analysts with sourcing experts who “get” what this industry is all about, which takes us to our two new analyst hires, Brian and Jamie:

Brian Robinson

Brian Robinson joins HfS as senior analyst covering sourcing strategies and price benchmarking. With more than 12 years of consulting and industry experience, Brian has lived and worked on four continents, where he’s served clients across a number of industries, including energy, banking and insurance, consumer products, and automotive.

Brian spent the last four years with the outsourcing advisory firm the Everest Group. Progressing from Consultant to Senior Consultant and then to Engagement Director, Brian advised a number of the world’s largest outsourcing buyers and providers. During extended engagements, he served clients onsite in the US, Australia, India, Japan, Canada, the UK, and the Netherlands. Brian holds a B.S. degree in Industrial and Systems Engineering from the University of Florida and a MBA from the Darden School of Business at the University of Virginia.
