Bloomfield Twp., Mich. — November 18, 2019 — CGS Advisors, a boutique strategy and innovation firm that assists corporate leaders to bravely compete in the connected world, announces the addition of Timothy McCabe to the firm’s Fellows Network. A group of CGS’ most experienced and uniquely skilled leaders, the Fellows have learned from several career pivots and have walked in the firm’s clients’ shoes.
“We are excited to have Tim as a member of the CGS Fellows Network and for him to be able to share his vast experiences and expertise with our clients,” said Gregg Garrett, founder and CEO of CGS Advisors. “Tim’s tenure across some of the largest enterprises, leading various disciplines across multiple industries, as well as his ability to successfully develop the right business strategies and deliver large, cross-functional change initiatives is unmatched. We’re fortunate to have him as a Fellow.”
McCabe began his career at General Motors (GM) and GMAC where he assisted with the spin-off of EDS and the creation of GM’s new information technology group. During this time, McCabe was part of a small team responsible for a 10-year technology outsourcing deal to support GM’s North American business, which at the time was the largest IT outsourcing deal in the world. Ten years later, McCabe led the termination of the GM/EDS agreement as well as the creation and subsequent contracting of approximately $5B of services to help GM begin its digital transformation. At the launch of his time with Delphi, McCabe and a team of leaders planned and executed the largest industrial reorganization on record. In his role as CIO, McCabe designed and delivered a total global transformation of all underlying technologies across more than 300 sites in 27 countries, separating out for either sale or winddown of almost $20B of revenue and the eventual IPO of the new Delphi. In his most recent role, McCabe was a Managing Director in the KPMG Advisory Practice where he acted as a thought leader for the Chief Information Officer advisory group. During his almost five years with KPMG, McCabe had the opportunity to advise and counsel many C-Suite leaders as they looked for ways to improve their business outcomes by better leveraging technology, designing and executing digital transformations, restructuring their IT operating model, and reducing their legacy technology debt. Assisting organizations to transform, achieve greater shareholder value, and defend against competitive disruptions were the cornerstone of McCabe’s practice. McCabe keeps close to his passion for guiding technology entrepreneurs by advising early stage startups. McCabe holds a BA in Philosophy from Oakland University, an MSM from Walsh College, and an Information Management degree from GM University.
“I look forward to assisting CGS and its clients as all of us maneuver through the disruptions and displacements brought on by the massive technology changes confronting us. My years of experience allow me to have greater context, especially as these changes impact individuals, the enterprise, and the organizational culture. I believe that I can make a difference for our clients and am eager to help out,” said Tim McCabe. “These concepts are pillars of CGS’s methodology to working with clients, and I look forward to leveraging all that I can bring into the room to serve our clients.”
