NVTC Chair Emeritus Donna Morea to Retire from CGI

NVTC Chair Emeritus Donna Morea, CGI president, U.S. and India, will retire from the company effective December 31, 2011, after a successful 31-year career. Morea plans to remain active with CGI on its board of directors. George Schindler, current CGI Federal president, will step up into the role of president of CGI's U.S. operations.

"I would like to thank Donna Morea for her tremendous contribution to CGI and I am pleased that she has agreed to be nominated for election to our board of directors at our Annual General Meeting of Shareholders to be held in February 2012 so that we may continue to benefit from her experience," said Michael E. Roach, CGI president and CEO.

"As chair from 2008-2010, Donna led NVTC with vision and strength and it was my honor to serve as vice chair during her term. In her role as NVTC chair emeritus, Donna's insight and guidance continue to be extremely valuable to me and the entire NVTC Board," said NVTC Chair Brad Antle, president & CEO of Salient Federal Solutions. "Donna and I have been friends for many years and I will continue to look for her guidance and friendship going forward as she starts another chapter in her life and career."

"Donna has been a dedicated leader and an influential champion for our industry and our region," continued NVTC President & CEO Bobbie Kilberg. "We thank her for the wisdom, good humor and grace she exhibited in her role at NVTC and for her service to the entire Northern Virginia business community."

Morea joined CGI in 2004, following the company's merger with American Management Systems Inc. She has received numerous awards, including Woman of the Year Awards from Learning for Life and the Boy Scouts of America, National Capital Area Council; the Executive Leadership Award for Industry from the Association for Federal Information Resources Management; Federal 100 and Eagle Awards from Federal Computer Week; and Community Leader of the Year from the Northern Virginia Community Foundation.
