Slalom, a Seattle-headquartered management and technology consulting firm, has hired Michelle Grover as its first chief technology officer.

Based in San Francisco, Grover will oversee the 13,000-person company’s technology organization, including infrastructure, product engineering, and architecture. Grover will be responsible for developing IT strategy, growing IT expertise to support Slalom’s business goals, and evaluating opportunities across its more than 400 technology partners.

“As we evolve, scale, and expand our global footprint, our own internal technology needs have become increasingly complex,” said Tony Rojas, president of Slalom. “We have thousands of team members and clients worldwide who are engaged with technology and operating at the pace of innovation. Michelle is the kind of leader that can quickly identify opportunities and deliver simple solutions for complicated issues.”

Grover joins Slalom from First Command Financial Services, where she spent the last four months as the military personnel-focused bank's interim chief information and digital officer. Before that, she spent a year-and-a-half as CIO of Twilio, a communications firm focusing on programmable tools for sending and receiving calls and text messages.

Prior to that, Grover spent more than six years at TripIt and Mobile – part of travel and expense management SaaS platform SAP Concur – where she was SVP of software development.

Grover also previously served as consulting CTO of Softcom, a Lagos-based IT services firm.

“I have first-hand experience as a customer of Slalom. I always felt heard; their consultants were true partners, working alongside my team to deliver solutions that drove meaningful impact,” Grover said. “I knew this would be a great fit for my style of leadership—taking that same care to build a world-class IT organization.”

Slalom provides a wide range of services across strategy, technology, and transformation, including offerings in digital and product strategy, cloud and data architecture, product engineering, UX/UI design, process optimization, and change management.
