Jeitosa Group International Strengthens Executive Management Team

    Appointments Reflect Transnational Consulting Firm's Commitment to
Visionary Leadership and Unabated Global Growth

    SAN FRANCISCO, January 31 /CNW/ - Jeitosa Group International, one of the
world's fastest growing transnational consulting firms specializing in global
human resources, finance, business strategy, and information technology,
announced today the strengthening of its executive management team through the
addition of two senior executives. Jay Stright joins Jeitosa as Senior Vice
President of Business Strategy and Chief Knowledge Officer responsible for
defining the group's service portfolio and disseminating knowledge and
information across the organization and its clients. Pat Meneely will take on
the role of Senior Vice President of Technology and Chief Information Officer,
responsible for building a global information technology infrastructure to
support Jeitosa's worldwide network of transnational business and technology

    "Jeitosa's global strategic consulting skills fill a gap in the
marketplace," said Dave Duffield, co-founder and CEO of Workday(TM), the next
generation of enterprise applications built through native SOA and Web
Services. "Viewed from an emerging technology standards-based perspective, no
one matches the breadth of experience Jeitosa possesses in dealing with global
HR issues." In November, Workday(TM) announced the general availability of its
Human Capital Management suite, the first in a new generation of on-demand ERP
solutions. Taking a fresh, modern approach, the company aims to provide mid-
to large-sized companies with a compelling alternative to traditional
enterprise software.

    "As the only true global provider of human resources business strategy
and technology consulting services, we have a significant opportunity in the
marketplace," said Karen Beaman, Founder and Chief Executive Officer for
Jeitosa. "I'm thrilled to have Jay and Pat joining our team. Their collective
experience and knowledge of the industry will be a tremendous asset to Jeitosa
as we continue to expand our business." Jeitosa currently has a transnational
network of more than 30 consultants across 11 countries (US, Canada, UK,
France, Germany, Brazil, Argentina, Australia, Hong Kong, Singapore, China,
and India). Collectively their experience comprises more than 500 years of
global human resources and information technology experience.
