(16-Dec-09) Executives for Hartco-owned solution providers Metafore LP and Microserv, which announced plans to merge earlier this week effective in January, say the new Metafore will be better able to service national customers across the country, and compete with the likes of Softchoice and Compugen.
However, the new Metafore's three-person leadership team, which will be composed of current Metafore president Bryant Jackson,current Microserv vice-president and general manager Michel Lacasse and Metafore's David Kelly, will share the president's office along with each talking responsibility for a region, is raising some eyebrows.
Jackson told CDN this structure will allow Metafore to have senior executives in the regions with the customers, which has always been Metafore's business philosophy and leads to better customer service. Jackson, for example, has long been based in Calgary and will have responsibility for Western Canada.
