Owen Sullivan commented, “It has been a pleasure to serve on CTG’s Board during such a significant period of transformation and progress at the Company. However, given my high level of confidence in our Board and management team, the positive strategic direction of the Company and its recent strong operating results, I believe that now is the right time to step away from CTG’s Board and focus on other activities.”
“I am honored to join the CTG Board of Directors,” Ms. Stein said. “I look forward to working closely with the highly accomplished directors on the Board and the Company’s management team as we continue to execute our digital transformation strategy and build on the positive momentum already underway at CTG.”
