ESG Consulting Appoints Industry Veteran Michael P. Cormier as Managing Director of Its Professional Services Division

SANTA CLARA, Calif.--()--Sept. 27, 2005--ESG Consulting announced today the appointment of Michael Cormier as Managing Director of Professional Services, effective immediately. Cormier will be responsible for managing and building ESG's professional services both in the US and abroad.

Sal Shafi, CEO and founder of ESG Consulting, says, "We are very happy to have Michael on our team. He brings a wealth of experience in business and technical solutions delivery. With ESG rapidly growing, along with our presence in near shore (Canada, Costa Rica, Mexico) and offshore (India) services offerings, coupled with our clients' needs becoming more complex, Michael's background will add significant value to our ability to meet our client's requirements."

For the past 15 years Cormier has been providing clients with business and technical solutions delivery across multiple industries such as telecommunications, consumer products, government, and technology. Prior to ESG Consulting, Cormier worked at Accenture, PeopleSoft, and Corio.

"Despite a resurgence of spending in the IT sector, IT managers must remain cost conscious. This usually means they will need to consider alternatives such as near-shore and offshore to more effectively manage costs while still ensuring quality," said Cormier. "Pulling it all together and finding that right solution is the challenge that companies face. ESG Consulting is up to the challenge."

"We are pleased to have someone with Michael's background and considerable skills fill this key position," said Ali Shafi, Managing Partner of ESG. "Our goal is to expand our services capabilities and Michael is uniquely qualified to lead that effort."

Cormier holds a BA degree with an emphasis in Management Information Systems from Loyola Marymount University.
