Financial Officer, succeeding Don Norsworthy effective August 8, 2018.

extensive track record of profitably growing BPO companies. He
previously served as CFO of Aegis Global, which was combined with
Startek on July 20, 2018. At Aegis, Ramesh helped manage more than

organization of prominent BPOs, including serving as CFO of The Minacs
Group and Progeon (now Infosys BPO).

"Ramesh's breadth of global experience and leadership will be an
invaluable asset to our finance team," said Lance Rosenzweig, president
& global CEO of Startek. "Ramesh brings a strong track record of helping
leading BPO companies accelerate growth while implementing global best
practices and operating efficiencies, which is particularly timely given
our new global footprint of more than 60 delivery campuses in 13
countries around the world. We look forward to leveraging his expertise
as we begin to integrate our new global platform and capitalize on new
economies of scale."

"Following Ramesh's appointment," Rosenzweig continued, "our current CFO
Don Norsworthy will be leaving the organization to pursue other
interests. Don has been instrumental to several strategic objectives
over the last few years, and we wish him all the best in his future
endeavors."
