The deal, which follows a 15-year partnership between the two woman-owned businesses, will allow SHI to grow and retain its talent base while also providing customers with skills and knowledge to better adopt and consume technology through the addition of training as a provided service, the company said.
Moving forward, Lisa Eeyerkuss, president of CTG, will work closely with the HR team at SHI to grow its internal training program. Meanwhile, Rob Eyerkuss III – a 10-year veteran of CTG – will take on a new leadership role as senior director of the CTG within SHI’s Enterprise Solutions Group.
CTG provides webinars featuring live, instructor-led classroom sessions and self-paced e-learning courses. According to SHI, the company is known for customizing training to specific organizations.
“SHI has always prided itself on its ability to deliver value to customers in the form of technology and services,” said Thai Lee, president and chief executive officer of SHI, in a prepared statement. “Now we’re redoubling our efforts to aid customers’ technology adoption through training to provide another avenue for customer success.
“Acclimating users and IT professionals to their new technology can improve their overall return on investment while boosting employee productivity and morale,” she added. “In addition, by expanding our internal training, we can ensure we have the most knowledgeable team advising and serving customers.”
CTG will remain in Iselin and fold all of its employees into SHI. According to the company, customers will see no disruption in service.
