The European offices, due to open early this summer, add to the company&#39s presence in Brussels and Cyprus. TLI wants to build a salesforce of 125 account managers in mainland Europe by 2005.

The Singapore office will open by the end of this year, complementing the 60-strong salesforce in Kuala Lumpur, Hong Kong and Tokyo.
