    Global information and asset management leader, LA-based LAC Group, today announced the opening of its new UK office, located in Oxford (London area). The new operation is headed up by Iain Dunbar, a seasoned expert in strategic information and asset management.

    According to LAC Group CEO Deb Schwarz, the launch of physical operations within the European Union has been in the works for some time.

    “It was a logical next step for us,” she explained, pointing to an advantage that few information management firms have. “We already have an established client base in the UK, and wanted to enhance our partnerships there and in surrounding regions by offering the highest levels of service, cost savings and efficiency possible—always our trademark mission.”

    The selection of the new UK office chief, Iain Dunbar, was also a clear choice, said Rob Corrao, LAC Group COO. Corrao and Dunbar had previously been colleagues at Softlink, a global leader in library technology solutions, where both made significant contributions to that organization’s success.

    “Iain’s high ethical standards and consummate focus on client success, as well as his ability to expand a market presence, made him the logical choice for this leadership role,” noted Corrao. “In addition, Iain brings to this post a strong background knowledge of library and information management technology.”

    “We’re so pleased Iain has joined our team,” added Schwarz. “In this global economy—with all of its current demands and tribulations—there is just no substitute for a local presence to afford our clients the successful results they’ve hired us to achieve.”

    The new LAC Group offices are located at The Quorum, Oxford Business Park North, Garsington Road, Oxford, OX4 2JZ, United Kingdom. Call 0800 433 4758 or email Iain Dunbar at Additional details are available online at
