Fortune 100 Global Technology Executive Joins Fortium Partners


Dallas, TX -- April 12, 2016 – FORTIUM PARTNERS, the world’s fastest-growing provider of IT turnaround and leadership services, today announced that Jorge Cornejo, a proven technology leader with years of experience managing global teams for companies like Delphi Systems Worldwide, Volkswagen and Meggitt PLC, has joined the Detroit practice of Fortium Partners. Cornejo has more than 25 years of IT leadership experience in the manufacturing, automotive and aerospace and defense industries.

Prior to joining Fortium, Cornejo was the senior director of global programs for Meggitt PLC, a global engineering group specializing in extreme environment components and smart sub-systems for aerospace, defense and energy markets, where he oversaw the management of the global integrated program plan across 50 sites worldwide. Before Meggitt, Cornejo spent more than a decade with Delphi Systems Worldwide, a global supplier of vehicle technology. Cornejo trekked around the globe in his progressive roles at Delphi, which included a stint as Director of SAP European COE, where he held overall responsibility for all SAP systems in Europe, and CIO of Delphi Asia Pacific, where he represented all of IT strategy for the region. Earlier in his career, he was the IT internal business consultant for Volkswagen of America and Volkswagen Canada. He also held some high-profile automotive consulting roles with Ernst & Young.

“The decline and resurgence of the automotive industry, and manufacturing in general over the past decade, has been a hot topic for everyone from global economists to high-ranking politicians. Executives at these companies know that without well-planned logistics, finance and technology systems in place, we wouldn’t be discussing the industry’s resilience today,” said Tim McCracken, Fortium Chairman and CEO. “Jorge is a CIO who knows how to manage chaos in a large, high-growth manufacturing environment and he can also implement organizational change management when plans go awry. I’m looking forward to seeing our manufacturing clients thrive with his guidance. He’s the right fit for our growing team.”
“Fortium Partners is different from other consulting firms because there’s absolutely no pressure to use clients as a training ground for a full team of inexperienced consultants. At Fortium, we are all deeply experienced CIOs, and each of us directly engages with clients who need the specific experience we bring as a fully neutral party,” said Cornejo. “It’s a fresh approach to consulting, and frankly it’s rewarding to share our experiences and war stories with fellow CIOs and other executives at businesses experiencing major transitions. I’m thrilled to join the Fortium team.” 

Cornejo holds a Bachelor of Science in Industrial Engineering from the University of Lima. He’s also fluent in English and Spanish.
