SYDNEY, TORONTO, Sept. 30, 2021 /Medianet International-AsiaNet/--

Former IBM executive Ron Laudadio joins EPiC to grow its international 

Business agility firm EPiC Agile is expanding into the Americas after bringing 
seasoned industry veteran Ron Laudadio onboard to continue its track record of 
exponential growth and global expansion.

The move comes as business booms for EPiC, which has grown its headcount by 
more than 75 per cent this year, as companies worldwide seek out business 
transformation solutions amid ongoing fallout from the coronavirus crisis.  

According to a recent study published by Accenture, more organisations are 
commencing a business agility journey and those on the journey report greater 
progress. Year-on-year, overall maturity increased 8 per cent, with companies 
reporting that a focus on overall business agility gave them greater 
adaptability when the pandemic struck. (1)

EPiC Agile is a full-service business agility  transformation company, with 
more than 60 coaches through South-East Asia who help companies successfully 
implement business agility models. Having worked with the likes of Woolworths, 
Telstra, Cochlear and AfterPay, EPiC’s coaches mentor business leaders as they 
undertake major company transformations, as well as developing bespoke 
strategies that foster strong workplace culture and modern ways of working.   

Mr Laudadio spent more than two decades in various roles at global computer 
giant IBM, including as chief technology officer for Canada, before joining 
consulting firm CGI where he spearheaded agile transformations on various 
projects.  Mr Laudadio has since left CGI and built his own business, training 
leaders and helping their businesses stay nimble.  A major Canadian bank and a 
North American insurance company are among his clients.

Having witnessed transformations in about 2,000 leaders throughout his career, 
Mr Laudadio says he has good insight into business strategies that resonate 
with impact.

“The future of business agility transformation is global, the most effective 
models impacting the way companies think and organise are in high demand,” Mr 
Laudadio said.

"This is why joining EPiC Agile was a natural fit. Their strategic 
implementation of business agility is unique and will be sought after by 
business leaders in this region." Mr Laudadio said.

His newly recruited team of eight, to be based in Canada and the US, joins 
forces with EPiC in the Asia Pacific region.

"We are delighted that Ron is joining our international leadership team as we 
look to accelerate the momentum we've created across Asia, into the Northern 
Hemisphere," EPiC co-founder Rob Gaunt said.

Prior to the initial COVID-19 outbreak, EPiC had been growing exponentially as 
companies sought expertise to keep ahead of what has become a quickly evolving 
business landscape.  Many companies had already realised the importance of 
staying nimble in the face of rapidly emerging competition and increasingly 
nomadic customers, and demand for EPiC's business agility transformation 
coaches has never been greater.

Since launching in 2016, EPiC has built up an impressive business 
transformation track record, now with more than 60 coaches across three 
countries through South-East Asia.
