The firm has named IT consulting veteran Gail Holmen as General Manager to lead and oversee operations in California and Washington.

"OpenSky believes that a vendor independent and highly experienced IT consultancy plays a valuable part in the design, optimization and security of business assets," said Roger Levasseur, President and CEO of OpenSky. "An important part of our high quality, trusted-advisor service is having a physical presence near our clients.
