London - 12 November 2007

Julian Mountain, founder of specialist consultancy, Mylorr, will be heading-up GFT UK’s specialist programme and project management practice, following the assets purchase of Mylorr by GFT Group, one of Europe’s leading suppliers of innovative IT solutions. The company expects the integration of Mylorr to be completed before the end of 2007.

Mylorr was the second company Julian founded, following his success with Harvard Consulting, which he sold in 2005. An electrical engineering graduate, Julian started his working life at Price Waterhouse in the 1980s, quickly became involved in the financial services sector and has never looked back. He went on to a spell at Arthur Andersens before starting up Havard Consulting. Mylorr was established in 2002 and has recently been the subject of an assets purchase by GFT UK.

Graham Underwood, Managing Director at GFT UK commented, “GFT UK and Mylorr are a close fit and we are delighted to secure the substantial capabilities and experience of Julian Mountain to spearhead specialist project management at GFT UK. This is a very exciting period of growth for the company and Julian will be applying his knowledge of his proprietary project management methodology, Premier, to GFT’s clients. Needless to say, we are all very pleased to have him aboard.”

Julian, a Ski Club of Great Britain guide, has an abiding passion for ski-ing, which he shares with Graham Underwood, who is a Snowsport England ski instructor.
