Munich, Germany/Manchester, UK. 11 December 2008 – Just eighteen months after the successful launch of TPGAmerica, TPG The Project Group, a leading Microsoft Project Partner and provider of products and services for Microsoft Enterprise Project Management (EPM), today announced the creation of a UK-based subsidiary, TPG The Project Group UK Ltd. The TPG UK office is located in Manchester, and will assume responsibility for sales and implementation of TPG products in the markets of England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland. The new office will put a particular focus on TPG PSLink® and on close collaboration with EPM partners in the UK. Peter O’Neill has been named as Operations Director of the new company and Stavros Georgantzis as Financial Director. Dr. Thomas Henkelmann, TPG’s Director of Consulting Services, completes the three-man board of directors of TPG The Project Group UK Ltd.

“Over the last few months, we’ve been seeing strong demand from UK companies for our products, and particularly for TPG PSLink, which integrates Microsoft Project with SAP”, said Stavros Georgantzis, Managing Director of TPG The Project Group in Munich, Germany. He noted that the company had decided to establish a local office in order to be more responsive and flexible in serving UK clients and responding to partner requests. “It was clear to us that we could only do this successfully with proper support by local staff. That’s why we’re delighted to have Peter O’Neill on board. He’s a hugely talented professional and has a deep knowledge of our products as well as of the UK and Irish markets for Microsoft Project and SAP. Together with us here in Munich, Peter will be developing the company in UK”, added Georgantzis.

Within weeks of setting up TPG UK there was significant interest from a number of potential clients and established effective relationships with local partners. In the current economic climate, companies are focusing more than ever on project control and effective resource management. “With its EPM knowledge and unparalleled SAP integration expertise, TPG offers a range of products and services to help organizations meet the project management challenges they currently face. Customers around the world enjoy the tangible business benefits that TPG can bring, and we’re confident that we can continue this track record in the UK”, said Peter O’Neill.
