Share:

Startek, Inc. (NYSE:SRT), a global provider of customer experience
management, has appointed Albert Aboody to its board of directors,
succeeding Robert Sheft effective March 1, 2019. He will also join the
board's governance and nominating committee, along with assuming the
chairmanship of the company's audit committee.

Aboody is an accounting industry veteran with over 30 years of public
company audit experience. Most recently he served as independent monitor
for PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) India, where he oversaw compliance with
the SEC and PCAOB consent orders in connection to a significant Indian
public company audit.

Prior to his role at PwC, Aboody spent more than 30 years at KPMG where
he served as a US partner in various senior leadership roles and on
several committees. Aboody established the firm's SEC practice in India,
where he led its audit department and served as deputy chairman and on
its advisory board. He also managed the restatement and fraud
investigation groups, and led various audits on SEC engagements and a
regional M&A practice within the United States.

Aboody currently serves on the board of directors for a start-up cloud
services and cybersecurity company called QBitKloud. Previously, he
served on the board of directors and chaired the audit committee for WNS
Global Services, a NYSE-listed global business process management
company.

"Albert brings a wealth of experience and knowledge in public company
auditing to Startek's board of directors," said Aparup Sengupta,
chairman of the board of directors for Startek. "He has established
himself as an expert in the accounting field and has served in notable
positions with a "big four" accounting firm. Albert's expertise on SEC
reporting requirements and insight on accounting practices will be an
invaluable asset.

"I would also like to thank Robert for the support and guidance he
provided the company since 2011. His contributions were integral to
Startek's success and the business combination with Aegis, and we wish
him the best in his future endeavors."

Aboody commented on his appointment: "The global platform that Startek
has built through the combination with Aegis provides exceptional
customer experience solutions to clients all over the globe. I look
forward to collaborating with the rest of the board and management team
as we continue developing growth strategies and ensuring we remain alert
to best practices in corporate governance and public company reporting
requirements."

Aboody holds a bachelor's degree in International Relations from
Princeton University and was a post-graduate research fellow at the
University of Cambridge. He is a member of the American Institute of
Certified Public Accountants. He also co-authored the chapter on SEC
reporting requirements in the 2001-2008 editions of the Corporate
Controller's Manual.
