CTG’s CEO Bud Crumlish Named One of the 100 Most Influential Leaders in the Staffing Industry by SIA

Staffing Industry Analysts’ 2018 Staffing 100 list encompasses the individuals who are shaping and charting the course of today’s rapidly evolving workforce

BUFFALO, N.Y., February 16, 2018CTG (NASDAQ: CTG), a leading provider of information technology (IT) solutions and services in North America and Western Europe, today announced that Staffing Industry Analysts (SIA), the global advisor on staffing and workforce solutions, named CTG’s President and CEO Arthur “Bud” Crumlish to its 2018 Staffing 100.

Crumlish was named the president and CEO of CTG in July of 2016, and has spent more than 27 years in leadership roles at the Company, which is currently the 21st largest IT staffing firm in the U.S. in SIA’s most recent ranking. Previously, he served as CTG’s vice president and general manager of strategic staffing services - a role he held for 15 years. 

“When I look back on my career I am struck by the fact that while the skills needed to solve the most difficult business and IT challenges evolve quickly and continually, the fundamental ingredients for success remain the same: clients need a trusted and reliable partner who delivers day after day, year after year,” said Crumlish. “Our experts at CTG - whether they are shaping new approaches to data science, aligning electronic health records with evolving legislative requirements, operating mission-critical clinical help desks, providing custom software development work, managing IT service desks, implementing 3D digitization or setting new milestones of success in Industry 4.0 - all have one thing in common. They provide the exceptional level of service that is the reason so many of our clients measure their engagements with CTG in decades. Being named to this list is a reflection of the great work CTG’s employees do every day.”
