BOSTON, MA—November 15, 2017— Globalization Partners, a Global Professional Employer Organization and employer of record firm that helps companies expand internationally without establishing branch offices overseas, today announced the appointment of Eric Lodge as Senior Director, Strategic Operations.

As West Coast Regional Director, Lodge was initially tasked with building out the Silicon Valley office and leading the global client services organization to drive the business growth at High Street Partners. After 8 years on the operational side of global business services, he transitioned to the sales and marketing side of the business where he continued to provide organizational leadership and helped to drive business growth for another 5+ years, most recently as Radius’ VP of Sales.
“I am thrilled to be joining Globalization Partners in the most exciting phase of the company’s growth cycle,” Lodge says. “GP is the perfect storm of really smart people, a terrific business culture, and an outstanding business model. Joining a fast-growing company, which provides a highly needed service in a market where there is tremendous demand for GP’s award-winning global employer of record services—I couldn’t be more excited to be bringing my global business expertise and talents to Globalization Partners.”
