Austin, TX – January 7, 2014 – Catapult Systems, a leading Microsoft-focused IT consulting firm, today announced the opening of its new Seattle, Washington business unit. With the announcement of Catapult’s merger with CSI this past year, this will be the first joint office between both firms.

The decision to join forces and open its first combined practice in Seattle was one of the initial plans for growth for both organizations, as CSI has already created a strong presence within the Seattle area. Taking advantage of the synergy and strength of both firms, Catapult’s Seattle office will consist of both Catapult Systems and CSI employees working together to fulfill the increased global demand for end-to-end Microsoft services.

“The opening of this new office begins our exciting journey with CSI,” said David Fuess, President of Catapult Systems. “The ability to combine both Catapult and CSI employees under one roof will bring us that much closer to reaching our goal of becoming a premier provider of Microsoft integration services not only in the US, but globally.”

Fuess and CSI’s CEO Dr. Henry Chen have set aggressive goals to broaden their service offerings to new and existing customers while maintaining their dedication to quality and the company culture that all other office locations take pride in. Catapult’s new Seattle office represents the initial step in reaching these goals.
