Butchko and ESI Convergent combine forces

YARMOUTH, Maine—Butchko Inc. and ESI Convergent LLC,  top consultant firms founded and led by Benjamin Butchko and Pierre Bourgeix, respectively, have combined forces to bring their converged physical-cybersecurity solutions together to solve today’s complex challenges facing the industry.

Butchko and Bourgeix told Security Systems News that Butchko•ESI is dedicated to a converged physical-cyber approach that delivers sustainable business value and resilience. “We drive client success by integrating people, technology, information and processes to create comprehensive and practical solutions which maximize organizational mission success,” said Bourgeix. “This strategy yields clear understanding of an organization’s current state which holistically leads to substantive improvements in operational, organizational, and financial success.”

Butchko, who founded his firm in 2004, said ESI Convergent represents a “highly complementary” partner for Butchko going forward. “Pierre is a visionary in converged cyber-physical security,” he said. “Butchko has been evangelizing the convergence of operations technologies and processes with security for years as well. By combining forces, we are able to deliver value faster and with greater insight than either company can achieve individually.”

Bourgeix is equally as excited that the managing partners of ESI have made the decision to form a partnership and strategic alliance with Butchko, Inc., noting that for the past 25 years he has seen the security industry evolve and be challenged by events that have defined its future.

“Today we are seeing a new technological revolution take place that now unifies systems and domains,” said Bourgeix. “As a management consulting firm, ESI Convergent’s mission has always been to help its clients by taking a converged approach and evaluating threats and vulnerabilities and define their effect on business risk and resiliency within the IT, OT, PS and IoT environments. Over the years, I have had the privilege to work closely with Benjamin Butchko and his team. Ben has always displayed the same vision and passion to serve customers and our industry; combined with his years of experience in the physical security and operational environment, his firm complements our goals and values as together we help our industry move into this new bold converged world.”

Butchko added, “As we continually strive to improve our value to business organizations, aligning with partners who share a common vision and value system is paramount. The integrity-driven culture and customer solution focus that forms the foundation of ESI Convergent directly align with Butchko’s values. Together we will make a positive difference across industries and are thrilled to move forward together.”
