Canada’s Place in the 21st Century IT Services Industry

October 6, 2009


Michael Roach

Michael Roach, President and CEO, CGI

By any measure, CGI is a great Canadian success story. An IT service pioneer when it was founded by Serge Godin and André Imbeau in 1976, it has grown into one of the foremost consulting and systems integration companies in the world. With a presence in 16 countries, CGI currently employs 26,000 professionals in over 100 offices around the world. With revenue of $3.8B, CGI is also one of that small group of Canadian headquartered companies with annual revenues above the $1 billion threshold.

Michael Roach has made an immense contribution to CGI's growth. He spearheaded the merger in 1998 between Bell Sygma and CGI that effectively doubled the company's size and led the $1 billion acquisition in 2004 of American Management Systems. Fusing a strong depth of knowledge of both the telecommunications and the services sector, Michael Roach has a unique perspective on Canada's strengths and challenges in the fiercely competitive consulting and integration space. He will share this perspective at our next Board of Governors dinner.

We hope you can join us.
