In his dual role, Mr. Muhlfeit will help guide the company as it establishes and expands its leadership position and capabilities in Digital Government on a global level.
Mr. Muhlfeit in his new role will advise CRG on extending and broadening the Company's growth and investments globally, something at which he was highly successful with Microsoft. Mr. Muhlfeit will have a particular focus on emerging markets, cities and regions that are on the brink of major change, and reaching younger, more tech savvy generations. His stature in the international community and proven leadership will provide the Company with a strong hand as it navigates international business rules for technology companies entering foreign markets, and generally in dealings with multiple governments and organizations in the broad public sector.
Mr. Muhlfeit takes on his new role at a critical juncture for CRG as it establishes itself as the leading Mobile-First/Cloud-First/Data-First solutions provider for the broad public sector globally. Mr. Muhlfeit's oversight will be key as the Company introduces its award-winning CivicConnect(TM) Platform and "Smart" mobile products to a range of international public sector verticals including e-government, travel and tourism, transportation, water and energy, health and education among others. He will also provide direction on implementing the Company's plans for strategic partnerships, acquisitions and mergers worldwide. As the first order of business in 2015, Mr. Muhlfeit will oversee establishment of CRG's new Civic Cloud Hubs in key strategic locations around the globe.
"We are thrilled to have Mr. Muhlfeit join CRG as special Advisor and Chairman, CRG International," said Gregory Curtin, Ph.D., Founder and CEO of Civic Resource Group.

I am personally looking forward to working closely with him as we expand CRG's presence, product line and investments globally."
On joining CRG, Mr. Muhlfeit observed that, "In the 21st century cities, regions and even countries will mainly compete through the ability to unlock human potential. Technology will play an unprecedented transformative role in society and will even more dramatically influence further globalization. I am glad to join the CRG International team, because I believe that their technology will help transform cities, regions and countries to build better places to live around the world."
Mr. Muhlfeit is an Information and Communications Technology veteran, having served as a Vice President of Microsoft's Public Sector team in Europe, Middle East and Africa in 2005, Vice President, EMEA Corporate & Government Strategy in 2006 and most recently as Chairman Europe, Microsoft Corporation, among other notable appointments throughout his almost 22 years tenure with the company.
