“Combining Kostas’ new role as VP of Research and Development with Eric’s agreement to join Green Beacon Solutions is a ‘win win’ for us as we enter our second 10 years in business”
According to a recent press release by a leading industry analyst firm, only 15% of Fortune 500 organizations will leverage “big data” for a competitive advantage through 2015. Coupled with this, are recent projections about the growth in enterprise software spending in both existing and emerging markets beginning in 2012. Forgo’s experience will solidify Green Beacon’s market leadership role by developing new service offerings and managing delivery projects that integrate organizations through enterprise applications which improve ROI and drive profitable growth.
Kostas Tzigizis, one of Green Beacon’s founding partners and current Vice President of Consulting, will transition into a new role as Vice President of Research and Development. In this position, Tzigizis will identify and manage strategic initiatives to support the future growth of the Company. Among these initiatives will include developing and packaging market-ready solutions from the library of intellectual property (IP) that Green Beacon has acquired through their 10+ years of consulting engagements. These “software accelerators” will streamline a project’s implementation cycle by integrating with and supporting common industry practices. As a result, project costs will be minimized and resources will instead focus on resolving critical technology challenges impacting an organization’s business performance.
“Combining Kostas’ new role as VP of Research and Development with Eric’s agreement to join Green Beacon Solutions is a ‘win win’ for us as we enter our second 10 years in business,” said Benjamin A. Holtz, President and CEO of Green Beacon Solutions. “Together, Eric’s experience and Kostas’ vision will be influential in driving and fulfilling Green Beacon Solutions’ goal to help companies understand and take advantage of today’s leading enterprise applications while providing innovative technology solutions that support our client’s growth.”
Prior to joining Green Beacon Solutions, Eric held executive roles with Solver, Inc. and ePartners, leading Microsoft-based software and services organizations.
