"With this team we will push hard into the growing business services
MONCTON, NB, Oct. 27 /CNW/ - T4G Limited, a leading national provider of
project-based technology services, is pleased to announce that former
Whitehill Technologies Inc. veterans Fred Yeomans and Kevin Berry have joined
the company's newest office in Moncton.
With proven track records for growing new businesses, Kevin Berry will
aim to make T4G a leader in providing solutions to the business services
sector of lawyers, accountants and other professionals, while Fred Yeomans
with his extensive technology experience will focus on portal solutions to
clients in all of T4G's focus markets that increase information worker
"Business services is a growing market as today's professionals embrace
the latest technology to make their firms more competitive and cost
efficient," says T4G president Geoff Flood. "We are strong in sectors such as
retail, tourism & hospitality, financial services, telecommunications and
healthcare; and the business services market is the natural next area to
enter. In the next two years, IT spending in business services will outpace
the overall market by 50 per cent, according to analysts at IDC Canada."
Whitehill was a Moncton company that grew from its local founders into
Canada's fifth-largest private software company before being acquired in 2007.
It is now owned by U.S. multinational Oracle Corp. At Whitehill, Fred Yeomans
was vice-president technology and Kevin Berry was vice-president of sales,
legal. Both are Moncton natives who were instrumental in making Whitehill a
leader in the business services market with almost 80 per cent of the top 250
law firms in North America as clients.
"It is exciting joining T4G, a company clearly committed to New
Brunswick, Atlantic Canada and the country as a whole. With this team we will
push into the growing portal market," says Fred.
Adds Kevin; "It is a thrill to join T4G and help take the company to the
next level, not only here in Moncton, but across North America within the
business services market."
Yeomans and Berry are the most senior of several former Whitehill
employees who have joined T4G's Moncton operation.
T4G has long been a presence in New Brunswick, opening its first Saint
John office in 2001. Mr. Flood, who hails from Saint John, said the company
has worked with many of the province's institutions and companies in various
sectors such as tourism, telecommunications and energy. T4G will create at
least one dozen new jobs in the Moncton office by the end of 2008.
"And we really see opportunity in the business services market," adds Mr.
Flood. "First, Microsoft's robust technology, which we specialize in
customizing for our clients, is a perfect fit for the needs of professionals.
Second, it is a market like Goldilocks and the Three Bears: Not too big and
not too small; and just right for T4G. We believe Fred and Kevin and our
Moncton team will excel, not only in Atlantic Canada but for clients across
These hires fit into T4G's strategy of not sending IT work "offshore",
but "near shore" in Atlantic Canada instead. "T4G's ability to recruit whole
teams by offering a superior employment proposition is a strategic advantage.
T4G is getting top talent by finding it in places where people want to live
such as Atlantic Canada," says Dennis Brink, T4G's Vice-President of
Acquisitions and Recruitment.
This commitment to recruiting and retaining talent wherever people live
in Canada is one reason T4G was recently named to the 2008 Best Workplaces in
Canada list in the Globe and Mail newspaper by the Great Workplace Institute
Canada. T4G now has offices in Toronto, Saint John, Halifax, Vancouver and
