Chicago, IL – May 13, 2024 – ps Hummingbird, a strategic joint venture between Publicis Sapient and Tquila, is pleased to announce the appointment of Greg Gant as its inaugural Chief Executive Officer. This appointment underscores ps Hummingbird's commitment to expanding its Microsoft Dynamics 365 and Power Platform services, integrated with the advanced generative AI capabilities of Microsoft Copilot.


Gant brings over two decades of proven leadership in technology innovation and digital transformation, specializing in Microsoft Business Applications and business outcomes.

I am thrilled to lead a team where innovation is the norm, diversity is our strength, and artificial intelligence is harnessed to redefine customer engagement."


Gant’s expertise in driving growth and fostering innovation aligns with ps Hummingbird’s goals of crafting exceptional experiences and harnessing AI to transform customer interactions. “As the landscape of AI-driven automation and copilot assistants rapidly evolves, maintaining a focus on human experiences becomes increasingly crucial,” said Dan Larkin, Chief Revenue Officer. “Greg’s deep commitment to the human aspects of our business—from our team to our clients and their customers—will be instrumental as we navigate this exciting phase of growth.”


Gant arrives at a time of rapid expansion: operations in Australia launched in April. "Greg's leadership marks a significant advantage for us. His strategic vision is pivotal as we escalate our efforts to deliver cutting-edge, AI-driven solutions. I look forward to collaborating with Greg to harness our combined expertise and drive innovation and success in the Australian market,” said Rodney Barrell, Australia Country Manager.
