“Our company has been in business for more than 32 years, and it has successfully expanded through many business cycles over its three decade history,” said Walter Rogers, Baker Communications President and CEO. “Prior to the mortgage meltdown and following recession, we specifically and deliberately reengineered and repositioned our entire company’s value propositions and strategy based on a global platform for systems development and deployment, training, coaching, and execution management. We are one of very few Professional Development firms with employees or partners located in over 25 countries, uniquely positioning our firm to support the largest and most complex performance improvement deployments. As a result, we grew 50% last year and forecast the same growth this year.”
Baker’s core shift is underpinned by delivering tangible, measureable and repeatable outcomes that directly impact both the top and bottom line. Baker Communications offers Integrated Solutions that follow a logical flow of enablement, implementation and self-correction. This process ensures alignment with key functions and existing workflows, ensuring these solutions are easily integrated into client organizations and executed with precision. In addition, specific Industry Solutions have been developed for the Financial Services, Technology, Media, Public Sector and Energy verticals.
“Our growth and continued expansion globally is directly related to this shift in our culture, strategy and value to our marketplace. I could not be more excited about the future, even as we see economic storms brewing in the horizon” said Rogers.” It is for this reason that I am also pleased to announce several key promotions and enhancements to our executive team to ensure our continued success:
• Lawne Gerhardt – promoted to Chief Operating Officer
• Lin Fisher – promoted to Chief Strategy Officer
• Christie Bissias – promoted to Chief Technology Officer
• Tyler Dorsey – promoted to Vice President, Information Technology /Services Vertical
