Korn/Ferry International Establishes Global Supply Chain Center of Expertise in Shanghai, China

    - Mr. Bill Fello to Help Companies Entering Asia to Improve Flexibility
    Performance -

    SINGAPORE, Oct. 27 /CNW/ -- Korn/Ferry International (NYSE:   KFY), a
premier global provider of talent management solutions, today announced that
it is creating a new Global Supply Chain Center of Expertise (COE) based in
Shanghai, China.  The establishment of the COE is in direct response to the
complex challenges posed as Asia in general and China in particular have
become the focal points of global supply chain expansion for companies across
virtually all industries. Mr. Bill Fello has been appointed to lead this
dedicated practice, which will focus on Integrated Supply Chain Management,
and will advise clients on a range of pressing leadership issues as they look
to enhance their competitiveness worldwide.
    "Since founding the first supply chain management practice at this level
of executive recruitment, Bill has placed more senior supply chain executives
than any other search consultant in the world and is well-known for his
excellence in client service," said Mr. Charles Tseng, president, Korn/Ferry
International Asia Pacific. "In a fluid global environment with numerous
risks, supply chain leaders must be able to keep up with rapid and frequent
change and increasing complexity. Proven supply chain talent is in great
demand worldwide, especially in China and throughout Asia. There is a shortage
of leaders who are experienced in overseeing integrated supply chain efforts
for multiple units across multiple geographies who also can keep up with and
drive the changes needed for sustainable growth. Bill's expertise and his
leadership of the new global COE will be instrumental in enabling clients to
fill the gap. With Bill's move to Shanghai, Korn/Ferry is now the only major
executive recruitment firm to have its supply chain leader based in Asia."
    About the Supply Chain COE
    As Managing Director of the new Supply Chain COE, Mr. Fello will direct
all of Korn/Ferry's activities relating to filling critical supply chain
functional leadership roles in Demand Planning, Sourcing/Procurement,
Manufacturing (including Third-Party), Distribution/Logistics, Quality, and
Customer Service in the Industrial, Consumer/Retail, Technology, Life
Sciences, and Healthcare sectors worldwide. The COE will also support general
management talent acquisition needs globally for vertical market supply chain
services companies, including Transportation, Third-Party Logistics (3PL's),
and Port Authorities. The COE will partner with clients to attract proven
supply chain executives who can deliver Best Practices, implement contemporary
supply chain processes and achieve a competitive advantage anywhere in the
