Houston, Texas (PRWEB) December 11, 2008
Lincoln-Bledsoe Global Technologies, an international provider of IT consulting and networking services, today announced the appointment of Othon I. Herrera to the position of chief executive officer. Mr. Herrera becomes Lincoln-Bledsoe's first CEO, signifying a major step the company is taking to prepare for its next phase of growth.
Othon Herrera possesses many years of executive leadership experience in the business services and information technology (IT) industries. Mr. Herrera's experience includes serving as CEO of Talent Tree, a national provider of commercial, healthcare, and IT human capital services with more than 6000 employees deployed in over 100 markets across the United States; president and chief operating officer of national information technology business services firms, Technisource and IntelliMark IT Business Services, where his accomplishments included leading the integration and transformation of 21 companies which formed IntelliMark. Mr. Herrera also led IntelliMark's management buyout from its parent company, Edgewater Technologies and subsequent $250 million acquisition of Technisource. Herrera has also held various key leadership positions in the gaming and hospitality industry in disciplines ranging from marketing to international market development for Lone Star Casino Corporation, Foxwoods Resort and Casino, Sahara Resorts and Mirage Resorts, Inc.
"In our efforts to align ourselves with a new chief executive officer, we looked for someone who had experience in improving business performance combined with the experience necessary to help a fast-growing company achieve its goals in an organized and sensible manner. I join those who share the view that Othon is the person who will lead our company to new heights," said Joseph Lincoln, co-founder and principal of Lincoln-Bledsoe.
"We find ourselves at a unique stage--our services have been met with great market acceptance. However, we must be mindful to continue evolving our service delivery processes in concert with the demand which will result from that acceptance. Accordingly, we recognized we needed a leader who can help us put it all together with discipline," added Gregory Bledsoe, Lincoln-Bledsoe's co-founder and principal.
"In a world economy where it is the right time to find the right value plays with absolute upside potential, I can't imagine a better place to invest my energy. The Lincoln-Bledsoe service model is immensely valuable to its customers. They also benefit from a recurring revenue stream so long as LB maintains its service excellence efforts in the provisioning of risk mitigation and value-add services to its existing customers. It's clear to me that LB has only scratched the tip of the iceberg insofar as its growth potential is concerned. This is the right time to be a leader, employee, investor and customer for this company," commented Herrera.
