LINDEN, MI, August 31, 2012 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Today the executives of Covente, LLC, a Michigan corporation, formally announced a new global business development agreement with Igos Consulting, A.S., headquartered in Prague, Czech Republic. Covente, LLC provides its expertise to firms wishing to expand or improve operations domestically or internationally in today's hypercompetitive global economy.
Igos Consulting is an international group that provides a broad range of program management services for applications integration projects, as well as technology brokerage services to firms seeking expansion into new markets. Some of the company's major partners include Hewlett-Packard, IBM, Logica, and SAP.
Paul Selinger, president of Igos Consulting, said his firm decided to work with Covente after its president approached Selinger earlier this year about collaborating on IT consulting projects in Asia, Eastern Europe, and Latin America.
"We are pleased to be representing Igos Consulting, as there is a high level of synergy between what we want to achieve in certain parts of the world and what Selinger's firm has to offer," said Bryan Christiansen, Covente's president since 2006. Christiansen recently assumed the positions of Chairman and CEO. Dmitry Kolganov is now Covente's president.
Both companies will join resources to work on projects upwards of US$10 million. Current directions include China and Japan, Eastern Europe, Latin America, and Turkey.
The two firms will work on developing or enhancing applications integration projects in the aircraft, defense, education, energy, export-import, information technology, and manufacturing industries worldwide.
Selinger is a 30-year veteran of the Information Technology (IT) industry, focusing on business-driven solutions. A Certified Professional Consultant by IBM and other organizations, he has degrees in business administration, computer science, and engineering. Selinger is fluent in his native Czech, English, Slovak, and Swedish, with significant exposure to German and
Russian. Prior to his IBM experience, Selinger was instrumental in the globalization and deployment of Dell Computer Corporation's systems and operations around the world.
Christiansen has been involved in the IT industry since 1985. Fluent in Chinese, Japanese, and Spanish, he also has significant exposure to Russian and Turkish. A former business professor at Capella, DeVry, and Ellis Universities in the USA, Christiansen is now a Senior Lecturer of Business Administration at Gumushane University in Turkey. He published a book in March of this year titled, "Cultural Variations and Business Performance: Contemporary Globalism". It is available on Amazon.com. An advanced edition of this first book titled, "Cultural and Technological Influences on Global Business", will be published by IGI Global in 2013.
