AUSTIN, Texas – August 1, 2016 – Catapult, a leading IT consulting firm, announced today that it has placed as a finalist in the 2016 Greater Austin Business Awards in the Executive Leadership category. Organized by the Austin Chamber of Commerce, the award recognizes the leadership efforts of Catapult’s Chief Executive Officer, David Fuess.

At the onset of this transformation, Mr. Fuess met with every employee, challenging each of them to think of new ways to contribute.

“We believe in our employees and look to them to influence how Catapult grows as a company,” said David Fuess, Chief Executive Officer of Catapult. “This means that each employee is a key stakeholder on our transformation journey, and is encouraged to take part in the generation of new ideas that propel Catapult. I am incredibly honored to not only be nominated, but to be chosen as a finalist by the Austin Chamber of Commerce.”
