Dan Bellehsen, ibex Executive Vice President of Investor Relations and Corporate Development
WASHINGTON, Aug. 11, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ibex (NASDAQ: IBEX), a global leader in business process outsourcing (BPO) and end-to-end customer engagement technology solutions, today announced it has appointed Daniel Bellehsen as the company’s new executive vice president of investor relations and corporate development. He will report to ibex CEO Bob Dechant.
Bellehsen comes to Ibex with more than 13 years of finance and investing experience. As a portfolio manager at Columbia Threadneedle, Dan shared responsibility for the firm’s ibex investment, as one of its largest shareholders. He has been actively investing in high quality businesses over the past decade with a long-term orientation.
“I’ve had the opportunity to establish a close working relationship with Dan over the past 14 months and have quickly come to respect his return-oriented mindset and experience as a public company investor,” said Bob Dechant, CEO, ibex. “Dan provides distinct advantages in identifying high return initiatives both internally and externally to our executive leadership team and board. With a large and growing cash balance, there’s a tremendous amount of optionality here for Dan to help us grow our per share value over time. ”
“Given the enormous amount of growth ibex is experiencing after just one year as a publicly traded company, the time is right to tap Dan and his expertise to help grow the relationships with investors, while helping execute on the company’s long-term vision and business strategy,” Dechant added.
"Since being introduced to ibex well over a year ago, I’ve been thoroughly impressed with the company’s strong foundation, powerful growth engine and differentiated customer value propositions; together these factors provide a long runway for sustained growth and increases in per share value,” said Bellehsen. “The culture here has blown me away and the team continues to execute at an increasing level. All this said, there is an incredible opportunity ahead for this business, and I am eager to help unlock the company’s value in the public markets.”
“I look forward to working closely with Bob and the executive leadership team to further ibex’s growth ambitions, thoughtfully allocate capital, and build relationships with our shareholders,” he added.
