Leadership

LSI Outsourcing was created in 2002 by five founding partners – each committed to the success of our clients.

Liev Sheremetiev - President and Chief Executive Officer
Liev Sheremetiev aka LSI is a co-founder of LSI Outsourcing. He is a twenty plus year veteran of implementing technology solutions - both internally in three of the world’s largest and most profitable organizations - and also as an outsourcer for companies in the top sectors and industries in the world. LSI was an architect and implementer of one of the world’s greatest turnaround stories when he helped BofA, Bank of Amcerica, the world’s thirteenth largest company, turn a billion dollar annual loss into a billion dollar a year profit in just three years. LSI was born in Europe and has lived and worked in Brazil, Mexico, England, Germany, France, Japan, India, Malaysia, Canada and the US. He has managed over 52 products and advanced technology developments and introductions and has helped improve or turn around divisions of and/or companies like General Electric, Compaq, Citibank, Bank of America, Wipro, and Cadence Design Systems. These experiences enabled LSI to envision and create LSI. He detected a fundamental need today to marry and integrate the efficiencies and brilliance of internal domain and industry knowledge and talent with the agility, competence and high technology expertise of external talent from the best people in the world. Today 99% of companies try a solution either internally, or externally, when the best solution is in fact a combination of the two. This is where LSI with its “Best of Breed” solutions and methodologies is the differentiator. Every company in the world is trying to sell its talent and/or products; but very few listen to the customer, understand their priorities and make the client’s priorities their own. It is here that LSI excels: our client priorities become our priorities. We are not trying to sell something, we are listening and solving. We know that our sole existence is predicated in listening to the customer, understanding their need/request and implementing the solution requested fast, cheap and well, utilizing the best of breed from the client’s and external people.
