For Immediate Release
MILWAUKEE, Wis., Jan. 27, 2014 — RABQSA and iNARTE, the global leaders in developing personnel and training certifications for professionals and training providers, and part of ASQ’s one family of companies, have changed their names to Exemplar Global.
The Exemplar Global brand better reflects the organization’s broad community of professionals and organizations, according to CEO and President Peter Holtmann.
Exemplar Global, represented in 190 countries, “draws on its international expertise and experience to provide the world with only the best certification services, support and advice — something we believe enables us to add value to our customers and something that makes us stand out from our competitors,” Holtmann said.
The name change was prompted due to the demand of the organization’s services in new fields and countries, and from international organizations that facilitate world trade.
“Our experience and knowledge in the development and application of competence and recognizing capability is highly regarded, and we want to show that we can offer any solution to any market, anywhere,” Holtmann said.
The rebranding and name change will not adversely affect customers, who will instead enjoy a larger network of partners that recognize their credentials.
“We support Exemplar Global’s efforts as they recalibrate the brand to serve a broader community of professionals and organizations in their pursuit of recognition,” said ASQ CEO Paul Borawski. “We look forward to our continued relationship with the newly named Exemplar Global.”
