Project | Interim | Fractional CIO & CTO Services

PHILADELPHIA, PA August 11, 2014 / - FORTIUM PARTNERS, the world’s fastest growing provider of IT Turnaround and Technology Leadership Services, is excited to announce the addition of noted CPG IT expert Elizabeth Shuttleworth as its newest Partner.  Elizabeth will be based in Fortium's Philadelphia office.

A recognized CIO in the highly contentious consumer goods space, Elizabeth Shuttleworth led teams of up to 200+ IT professionals for CPG giants Campbell Soup Company, Vlasic Foods International, and Scotts Miracle-Gro.  Most recently, Elizabeth was a partner with Tatum where she spent the past seven years leading mission-critical IT projects for clients in both the public and private sectors.

Tim McCracken, Chairman and CEO of Fortium Partners states: "We are very excited to have Elizabeth join us. She is a consummate professional and just the seasoned IT leader our clients have come to expect from Fortium. A talented visionary and exceptional strategist, she remains the go-to person for many IT executives in the CPG space as they strive to capture market share in this highly competitive space. Further, proving her value in this highly complex industry makes her that much more valuable to clients in other verticals.

Elizabeth Shuttleworth comments: "Fortium's strong presence supporting private equity-backed portfolio companies positions me to help emerging mid-market companies whose IT requirements are just as complex, but may lack the maturity found in IT organizations in the Fortune 500. The opportunity to apply valuable experience while helping our clients to advance their IT capabilities in leaps and bounds is as exciting as it is rewarding. Knowing I am a click away from the insights, recommendations and advice from many of the world's top technology leaders... my fellow partners, gives me the added confidence that we can deliver the very highest level of value to our clients. 

Shuttleworth received her Bachelor of Commerce, Economics & Accounting from University of South Africa/Universiteit van Suid-Afrika
