"We're at a pivotal point in our journey as we're being challenged now
more than ever to think differently," stated Andy Lee, Chairman and CEO
of Alorica. "The industry is changing, customer interests are evolving,
and even the needs of our workforce are different from when we started
nearly 20 years ago. It's an exciting time for Alorica as we continue to
re-engineer ourselves to get ahead of the trends and develop innovative
solutions to engage customers. At the same time, we remain focused on
meeting the unique needs of each of our clients while fostering a
rewarding, challenging, and inclusive culture for the 100,000 employees
who make our work possible."

This stage of talent transformation is a key part of Alorica's strategy
to continue to exceed the expectations of its clients, customers, and
employees. With support from its Board of Directors and through a
reputable search firm, Alorica took on a different approach to identify
and vet candidates for these roles, seeking out creative-thinking,
experienced leaders with a diverse background leading numerous global
and large-scale companies in varied industries. These individuals will
take Alorica to the next level with increasing speed and diversity as
the company places an even greater focus on continuing to elevate its
business and technology strategies.

As Alorica's Chief Operating Officer, Greg Haller oversees several of
the company's functional areas, including: Operations, Client Solutions,
Global Business Services, and Marketing Communications, with the
objective of driving the business forward even more efficiently and
effectively with his operational acumen. Prior to joining Alorica,
Haller was with the telecommunications giant Verizon Wireless for 29
years, where he served in various senior leadership roles, such as
President of the Western Area as well as President of Enterprise and
Government Markets. Through his longstanding tenure at Verizon, he led

expertise in Finance, Operations, and Technology, as well as experience
in Europe, Asia, and the U.S., Tjon will build upon Alorica's current
foundation and execute the next phase of the business strategy, while
ensuring solid alignment with financial goals and commitments. Tjon
comes to Alorica with over 20 years of demonstrated experience in
numerous industries as both CFO and COO of public and large-scale
private organizations in Telecommunications, Logistics, Information
Technology, and Manufacturing. Previously, she was COO and President at
Scientific Games, where she oversaw P&L for divisions worth
approximately $2.4 billion, and served as the CFO and EVP at EPIQ
Systems.

from an IT perspective and enhancing operational excellence as Chief
Information Officer. As Alorica continues to create and improve

customers, his robust global IT leadership background spanning 25 years

strategy, digital transformation, cloud computing, and
cybersecurity. Phillips, who has led IT organizations for large and
complex technology-driven enterprises, was most recently the CIO of

and innovation.

emerging technologies, and process optimization to drive a trifecta for
clients — significant enhancement in efficiency and productivity, cost
reduction, and a compelling customer experience. Menon has more than 30
years of experience at global multinational companies like

Latin America. His experience includes international private banking,
asset management and capital markets, internet technologies and
electronic distribution platforms, IT, and BPOs as well as the private

identify and secure new opportunities, I'm extremely pleased to have
Greg, KJ, Steve, and Bhaskar join our team," said Lee. "With deep
expertise in their respective fields as well as proven track records in
a wide range of industries and with reputable companies, I believe they
are the perfect complement to Alorica's strong leadership team and will
play an important role in shaping our future. I'm excited for what's to
come."
