Peter Bendor-Samuel founded Everest Group in 1991 with the vision to assist the then nascent outsourcing and global services industry to evolve more powerful and effective mechanisms to create and capture value. Over the past 20 years, he has led Everest Group to be on the frontier of the global services industry, ensuring that the firm is constantly at the intersection of how leading firms take advantage of disruptive technologies, innovative service vehicles, and game-changing talent models.

Through the extensive consulting and research practices developed at Everest Group, Peter has served numerous Fortune 500 corporations, many of the leading service providers, and a significant number of private equity firms, and emerged as a respected industry analyst advising the investing community through a partnership with Sanford Bernstein. His many contributions to the global services industry have been recognized by a variety of institutions including Ernst & Young (E&Y) with its Entrepreneur of the Year award, PricewaterhouseCoopers’ Outsourcing Leadership award, and the Country of Japan, which invited Peter to serve as the honorary advisor to the outsourcing council of that Asian nation.

Under his stewardship, Everest Group has evolved into a firm with a reputation for delivering high quality consulting and research through a culture of individual and firm excellence, combined with a collaborative and values-based culture. This excellence model allows the firm to consistently be recognized for generating innovative insights and solutions that define and shape the next generation of global services.

Peter’s frontline involvement in early outsourcing engagements enabled him in the late 1990s to write the industry best-selling book, “Turning Lead Into Gold: the Demystification of Outsourcing.” He is a regularly featured thought leader in international business media including the Wall Street Journal, New York Times, and Financial Times, and is a frequent keynote speaker at various industry events.

Before founding Everest Group, Peter started E&Y’s outsourcing advisory practice, and was first introduced to the global services industry at EDS where he was an executive in its North American Services Group.

Peter holds Bachelor and Master of Business Administration degrees from Baylor University in Texas.
