Dallas, Texas – Everest Group, a strategic sourcing advisory firm, continues to expand its international influence with the addition of a Canadian office. As a result of the high-level interest in outsourcing in Canada, the Everest Group has opened an office in Toronto, Ontario. The consulting firm has offices in Dallas, TX and in Sydney, Australia.
Everest Group decided to open an office to service Canada after completing a number of engagements over the past five years with many leading Canadian companies. Everest has served premier Canadian enterprises, such as, CIBC, ScotiaBank, Union Gas, Nortel, Canadian Pacific Railroad and Bank of Montreal facilitating outsourcing relationships.
“This office will help fuel the growth of outsourcing as a strategic business solution for companies in Canada,” says CEO Peter Bendor-Samuel. “In today’s competitive world, outsourcing is one of the best ways to create value in the buyer’s organization.”
Canadian native, Frank Koelsch, joins Everest as its President and CEO, Canada. Frank Koelsch has a track record of starting and growing successful businesses in Canada. He founded Gartner Group Canada in 1985 and led that organization through a rapid growth phase as Vice Chairman/President.

Koelsch also founded Information Access Inc., a software distribution company and has worked for The Royal Bank of Canada, Sears, Canada and Crowntek Inc.

The new Canadian Everest Group presence allows Canadian companies to access the unique methodology and experience set of the US parent while being served and supported by highly-skilled local Canadian talent. Our objective is to engage all our energies and resources to help Canadian clients successfully develop, implement and govern outsourcing initiatives that deliver high business value.”
