Suss Consulting adds 2 executives

In an effort to broaden Suss Consulting's information technology consulting capabilities, the firm has added two senior executives. Retired Brig. Gen. Bernie Skoch has been promoted to executive vice president, and Tom Childs comes aboard as executive consultant.

Based in Jenkintown, Pa., Suss Consulting has been best known as a network and telecommunications firm, but "we're much broader than that," said Skoch, who has been at the firm two years.

"We're currently engaged on assignments that include professional services, broad-based IT solutions, voice-data integration, get-to-green management planning and agency system management effectiveness," he said.

Childs, who joined Suss in September, will spearhead marketing and sales. He has worked in government IT for 23 years and has managed government business at AT&T Network Systems, Gateway and US West before that company merged with Qwest Communications International.
