Akibia Consulting, a Boston systems integrator specializing in customer relationship management (CRM) applications, has opened a new office in Chicago.
"At a time when other consultancies are closing offices and laying off staff, Akibia continues to grow and thrive," said Adam Honig, Akibia's president. "We're excited about playing an important role in Chicago's CRM community."
The firm named Roy Schuster, a vice president with 12 years industry experience, to lead the office. Previously, Schuster was a principal at Lante Corp., an Internet consulting firm. He's also worked at Cambridge Technology Partners and Andersen Consulting (now Accenture).
In addition to its headquarters and new Windy City office, the privately held firm has operations in New York, San Francisco, London and Amsterdam. It employs about 450 people.
Clients include Akamai Technologies, PTC, Bose, Monster.com and Citibank.
