Pittsburgh, PA, August 12, 2019 – Aspirant, a Pittsburgh-based global management and technology consulting firm, announced the hiring of Rob Kovacevic as a Senior Manager in its Technology Practice and as a member of the Aspirant leadership team.

“Rob is a terrific addition for Aspirant as he brings a wealth of experience in senior IT consulting and industry roles. He specifically has tremendous expertise in Business Intelligence, an area which is in high demand in the marketplace,” said Aspirant President Mike McClaine. “Given Business Intelligence’s ever-increasing importance, we believe that continuing to grow our BI practice is a terrific way to serve our clients at the highest level.”
