The company has been a client of McDermott & Bull for several years, due to their strong relationship with Craig Lipus, Partner at McDermott & Bull.  When the company’s current Group Manager, Information Security submitted his resignation, they requested Craig’s assistance in finding an individual to replace the incumbent.  The need was pressing, as in order to make a smooth transition, it was crucial to find a service industry-experienced replacement prior to the incumbent’s exit.
