Van Ormer has over 25 years of professional experience in outsourcing operations, primarily in roles in the United States and SEA.
Leading the TaskUs team in SEA, Van Ormer joined the company to support the continued growth of the company's business and operations.
"Southeast Asia is one of TaskUs' most important regions; the company was born in the Philippines in 2008 and continues to expand throughout the region, with the recent opening of our Malaysia service hub this year [as well as our expansion into Japan]," he said. "The region's promising multi-language talent pool, with fluency in English and other languages and dialects, make Southeast Asia an important geography for the company’s promising future."
Meanwhile, Surdea is a seasoned veteran in the outsourcing space with extensive experience in delivering services across multiple industries. His professional experience spans from customer care to custom software development, third-party logistics, and finance and accounting processes.
"Being part of the industry, I have known TaskUs since it was a starting player with a limited geographical focus. Watching the company successfully grow over the past decade-plus has been amazing. It is a one-of-a-kind in the business driven by its industry-leading people-first culture that defines its work, practice and environment,” said Surdea. "I am thrilled to join the team not only to support the continued growth but also to drive the continued commitment to its people, which has been a foundation of its success."
He added, "Building on the solid foundation of our operations in Europe and heloo acquisition, we are primed to increase our footprint and be the same trusted partner for our clients for multilingual delivery."
"I am delighted to have Dean and Bogdan as part of the TaskUs leadership. Their presence will contribute to an even more exciting time for TaskUs, as we continue to grow globally and deliver operational excellence and unmatched experiences for our clients and our teammates," said TaskUs COO Stephan Daoust. "As we scale our operations in Southeast Asia and Europe, we are bringing on leadership to deliver on our growth potential while supporting our existing operations. And I am confident Dean and Bogdan are more than ready to take the lead in the respective markets."
