ATLANTA, May 23, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Institute of Financial Operations (IFO) identified Romil Bahl, president and chief executive officer of PRGX Global Inc., (Nasdaq:PRGX) as one of the Most Influential People in Financial Operations. Bahl was recognized, along with 24 other leaders and influencers, at the IFO's annual FUSION conference and trade show held May 8 to 12 in Orlando, Florida.
The IFO created the recognition to honor individuals whose contributions have furthered the accounts payable, accounts receivable and procurement professions. Bahl was nominated specifically for his thought leadership in the source-to-audit area. His vision for the future of PRGX challenges the traditional recovery audit business model and embraces innovation and emerging technologies to offer new value-added solutions across the financial operations landscape.
"As our organization has moved into the broad spectrum of financial operations, it's time to recognize leaders in our industry," said Thomas M. Bohn, president and chief executive officer of the IFO. "These are the people who are driving our industry in the short term and medium term, and identifying leading-edge solutions our professionals need to put into action."
"I am honored to have been recognized by the IFO among other prominent leaders in financial operations, including valued client executives and respected business leaders such as Steve Jobs," said Bahl. "This recognition supports the PRGX view that the financial operations space is rich with potential as a true profit contributor and a driver of shareholder value, rather than purely a cost center. The success that PRGX is enjoying in pioneering Profit Discovery services, whether through our Next Generation Recovery Audit, Fraud Prevention or Spend Optimization services, reflects this vision of the role that financial operations functions play."
