OVERLAND PARK, Kan., Jan. 22, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- TMNG Global (Nasdaq:TMNG), a premier provider of professional services and technical solutions to the global leaders in the communications, digital media, and technology industries, today announced that it has named Susan Simmons Chief Operating Officer. In this position, in addition to being the head of corporate strategy, she is responsible for leading the Company's global consulting and technical delivery teams, as well as managing all sales support and product management functions. Ms. Simmons was most recently Senior Vice President and Managing Director of the Company's CSMG strategy practice.

The appointment is being made in conjunction with a broader initiative to better align the Company's go-to-market and service delivery capabilities. Under the new corporate structure, TMNG has collapsed its business units and is now organized as a more integrated firm with separation of sales and delivery functions designed to increase focus and accountability and to maximize opportunities in serving telecommunications, media and technology customers. Sales teams are now organized around client accounts regionally, focused on UK/Europe and North America, with delivery teams also being connected globally to maximize intellectual property creation and sharing.

Donald Klumb, Chief Executive Officer of TMNG Global, noted, "We have reached a major milestone in TMNG's corporate transformation efforts to optimize our consulting and expand the technology solutions businesses. Over the past year, we have been collaborating far more extensively across business units, and we have now formalized our efforts, tearing down the business unit walls and assigning new leadership functions designed to increase focus, efficiency and accountability and to maximize opportunities with our clients."

"TMNG has made significant strides over the past two years in redefining our strategy, innovating our offerings and becoming a more team-based and collaborative company. I look forward to managing the global delivery team as we further our efforts to evolve our business model and to continue to generate positive return on investment for our TMT customers," said Susan Simmons, Chief Operating Officer.
