“As we evolve, scale and expand our global footprint, our own internal technology needs have become increasingly complex,” said Tony Rojas, Slalom President, in a statement. “We have thousands of team members and clients worldwide who are engaged with technology and operating at the pace of innovation. Michelle is the kind of leader that can quickly identify opportunities and deliver simple solutions for complicated issues. We’re lucky to have her onboard.”

Slalom is a $2.9 billion company with over 13,000 employees, according to the company’s website.
