Former federal leader named CGI's new CEO

CGI has appointed current president and chief operating officer George Schindler to the role of president and chief executive officer, effective Oct. 1.

Schindler has also been elected to the company’s board of directors.

Schindler succeeds Michael Roach, who will retire from the company later this month.

“George was identified by the Board more than five years ago as a strong candidate for the CEO role. Since then, he has progressively assumed more responsibility, from our US business to North American operations and, for the last year and a half, all global operations have reported to him,” said Serge Godin, founder and executive chairman of CGI.

Previously, Schindler also ran CGI's federal business and joined the company when it acquired American Management Systems in 2004.
