Divergent Language Solutions Announces New Vice President and Global Head of Client Relations
Sales and business operations veteran Michael Stypa appointed to new role to drive the next stage of growth at Divergent
SAN FRANCISCO & NEW YORK, April 20, 2021 (Newswire.com) - Divergent Language Solutions, a leading provider of legal, financial, insurance, and technical foreign language services, today announced Michael Stypa has joined the company as Partner and will serve operationally as Vice President and Global Head of Client Relations. Stypa has led successful sales and operations teams in the foreign language industry for more than 17 years, building and managing large, high-growth language service providers ("LSP").
Most recently, Stypa was Global Sales Manager for a top-three LSP. While there, he played a key role in driving growth and was responsible for business development, team management, and sales strategy. Stypa worked in a diversified range of regulated industries such as legal, insurance, and life sciences.
Stypa started his career at Geotext Translations alongside Divergent's founder and CEO Brandon Carney.
"Michael is an accomplished leader with experience driving sales and disruption," said Carney. "His industry knowledge combined with that of Divergent's current leadership, and our quality service offering, are a winning combination for our clients. Having worked closely with him previously, our values and missions are aligned on providing superior 24/7/365 language solutions globally."
"Our philosophies are in sync in that it is not about bigger is better or about providers who claim to do it all. We truly are about ensuring that we are best in class in what we do and that we focus on the core elements our clients want in the end." - Michael Stypa
"I am excited to be joining the Divergent team and reuniting with Brandon. Our philosophies are in sync in that it is not about bigger is better or about providers who claim to do it all," Michael Stypa shared. "We truly are about ensuring that we are best in class in what we do and that we focus on the core elements our clients want in the end: extraordinary responsiveness, support staff fully immersed in the specific and challenging needs of the legal community, and the partnership - not 'use' - of truly well-respected and qualified subject-matter expert linguists who want to work with us just as much as we want to work with them."
Being based in Europe, Stypa's appointment as Vice President and Global Head of Client Relations also means a new phase of international expansion for Divergent which already serves a global portfolio of clients from its headquarters in San Francisco, California, and New York City offices.
"Adding a European presence builds upon our U.S. success," Divergent CEO Brandon Carney said. "We are excited to continue to expand our international footprint as we deliver on our commitment to serving clients all over the globe."
