Language Services Associates Announces Major European Expansion
The Company Hires European Commercial Director and Relocates UK Headquarters to Support Continued Growth

Horsham, Pa. (March 22, 2011) Language Services Associates (LSA), a global language service provider offering a full suite of multicultural solutions, today announced its continued expansion into the European market.  Based in Horsham, Pa., LSA has been providing telephonic interpreting services to various agencies of the UK Government since 2006, including the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP), the Home Office, HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) and the NHS.

“We are excited to announce the continued expansion of our full suite of language-based services into the European market,” said Starla Keith, Vice President of Sales and Marketing, LSA.  “We anticipate this expansion will create sustainable employment throughout Europe as we plan to hire additional staff and source more Independently Contracted Linguists across key European countries.”

LSA recently hired industry specialist Jonathan Potter to oversee all European operations.  In his new role, Jonathan will be responsible for maintaining and growing existing client relationships, driving sales with an emphasis on the company’s premier telephonic interpreting service offering and sourcing Linguists to add to LSA’s roster of independent Contractors.  “My decision to join LSA was an easy one,” said Potter.  “I have always valued the company’s commitment to maintaining quality with a focus on innovative product development and reduced costs.”

Before joining LSA, Jonathan was responsible for managing the Interpreting Services Subsidiary of another language service provider.  He was also a co-architect of many of the current innovations that have provided departments of the UK Government with multimillion dollar cost savings.

LSA has also moved its UK headquarters to a larger and dedicated facility in Redditch, Worcestershire.  This new location will support LSA’s continued growth in the European market while making an important contribution to the local West Midlands economy.
