Ilan Oshri Professor Ilan Oshri

Professor Ilan Oshri, Director of the Global Sourcing Research Interest Group, was recently elected for the National Outsourcing Association (NOA) Council. His manifesto will focus on re-shoring work back to the UK.

The NOA Council is an elected body which helps shape the strategic focus of the NOA, to be tactically implemented by the NOA Executive (full-time employees). The Council is formed of NOA members representing the entire sourcing industry: buyers, suppliers, support; all key verticals, all key horizontal functions, all leadership positions. 

The NOA Council consists of 16 elected representatives and is joined by Honorary representatives from NOA Premier Member companies who proactively support the NOA Executive to deliver key initiatives, such as chairing Special Interest Groups or driving collaborative research projects.  The Council is elected on an annual basis by the NOA membership to deliver a proposed manifesto. Ilan's manifesto is about the re-shoring of work to the UK with the intention to strengthen the UK position in the global outsourcing industry. Ilan's manifesto includes a series of workshops and a research programme to collect data about current re-shoring trends. 

Ilan said:

"Getting elected to the NOA Council is a testimonial of CGSS leadership in the UK outsourcing industry. Joining the NOA Council gives us a great opportunity to generate impact and shape practices in the outsourcing industry."
