ExecutiveBiz recently had a chance to talk with CGI’s George Schindler about his firm’s recent acquisition of Stanley Associates:
“George Schindler, the President of CGI Federal, says “the acquisition of Stanley marks a very big day for CGI because it really brings us back into the defense and intelligence space.”
CGI Federal has been looking for this type of acquisition for six years. The acquisition “will be bringing high quality employees into the fold, with a client base that really completes CGI as an end to end government services provider,” says Schindler.
Schindler says the cultural match between the two companies made sense and CGI was extremely disciplined in making sure there was this fit. The cultural fit was something that was really important to the clients, but also to the employees of CGI and Stanley.
“The company itself is extremely client-focused just like CGI. The company has a dedication to their employees, recognizing that it is a people business and supporting the people of the company in order to support their customers,” says Schindler.”
