Financial Industry Veteran Founds Management Consulting Firm

Services to Include Algorithmic Trading Implementation, Business Strategy Development and Corporate Structure Realignment

CHICAGO, IL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- August 24, 2006 -- Mike Persico, former owner of several specialized professional services groups, has formed a new entity, Sidus Management Consulting, which melds technology and strategy into a comprehensive organizational vision.

"Sidus is structured to be vertically focused," Persico says. "For example, finance and trading firms utilize our specialized algorithmic group that is dedicated to the current shift from point-and-click infrastructure to auto-execution platforms. We're seeing a clear need to implement and program these black box systems, but also there's the question of how to best reorganize the human capital. That's a serious challenge for a lot of companies out there today."

Persico continues, "For other market segments, our executive partners all have run or owned businesses in their respective practice specialties. This really gives our client base access to an unparalleled level of expertise."

Sidus plans to engage in such time-honored service lines as change management, business process management, business process transformation, and reengineering. However, non-traditional offerings will also include operation management (OM) consulting, funding procurement, corporate structuring, merger & acquisition counsel and talent procurement.

"There's just so much more to offer a prospective client than conventional process and procedure evals. While we can do those and clearly, they are necessary at certain points in the business life cycle, but we can do some things that aren't so typical -- access to VCs and Angels for early stage funding, sourcing a quantitative financial engineer or representing a customer in a sale/merger transaction," Persico states.
