Chicago, IL – January 23, 2018 – Burwood Group, a leading IT consulting and integration firm, announced today a new organizational and leadership structure to support exponential company growth and innovation.

“We are excited about the impact expected from these changes and are confident these leaders will drive our future direction and success,” said Jim Hart, President at Burwood Group. “Joanna has been a transformational leader in Burwood’s California market, quickly establishing herself by doubling revenues in just twelve months while building a strong team and culture.
