Schindler was promoted to the U.S. leadership post in October after previously leading CGI Federal, where he was succeeded by Donna Ryan.

CGI also announced it completed the estimated $2.73 billion acquisition of British information technology firm Logica, forming a combined company of nearly 72, 000 employees in more than 40 countries.

Roach said in the release the company will focus on integrating Logica’s employees into CGI.

CGI will also assume Logica’s debt of $504.8 million, based on Logica’s Dec. 31, 2011 financial statements.

Logica’s shareholders approved the transaction in August.

The company provides several large businesses in Europe with business consulting, systems integration and outsourcing services.
