CATHY HORST FORSYTH

Over the past twenty years, Cathy Horst Forsyth has worked with business leaders at hundreds of multinational corporations across all industry verticals. In her experience, large companies consistently struggle with change, especially in areas where technology, finance, business and end-user requirements all intersect. And, today's marketplace doesn’t make it any easier for enterprises to find the right solution as software companies, equipment manufacturers and service providers all offer the same promise of an elegant solution, each falling short in a different way. Today’s large companies need an independent advocate to help drive the transformation process for network and communications services. And that is why Strongbow was created.
