We would like to share with you the opening of our office in Chicago and the new responsible partner. The video we are sharing is from October 2019 – the moment we started to “cut the office tape”. Eight months later, everything has been completed and, even with COVID, we are now open and operating in our new office.
With the above context Integration Consulting is proud to welcome a new partner in the United States: Gary Singer. Gary will assume responsibility for Integration’s U.S. operations and work with the existing team in the U.S. He will also become a member of our Board of Partners.
Gary’s entry marks a new phase of growth for Integration in the U.S., where we are increasing in size to meet growing demand for our focus on bespoke solutions that are fully implementable and matched to each client’s context. Gary’s years of experience in the consumer products industry and his specialization in marketing and sales projects are well-aligned with the profile of Integration’s consultants and international expansion movement.
Gary’s arrival also marks the official opening of a Chicago office location. This office enhances our ability to serve clients across North America from a central Midwest hub, and expand our relationships with companies, universities and other partners in the immediate region.
As a point of differentiation, Integration’s projects are staffed with both global and local professionals, offering our clients the benefit of diverse international experience combined with specific market expertise. We look forward to supporting clients in the U.S. through this approach, and broadening the talent we bring to engagements around the world with exceptional professionals from the U.S. market.
