James R. Boldt, who guided Computer Task Group’s push into the medical data field over the past 13 years, died unexpectedly October 13, 2014.
Boldt, 62, had been CTG’s president and chief executive officer since February 2001 and became the company’s chairman in May 2002. Under Boldt’s leadership, the company tried to reduce its dependence on its technology staffing business and attempted to become a major player in the medical data field, especially in providing services to help hospitals and other big health care providers adopt electronic medical records systems.
Before joining CTG, Boldt was vice president and chief financial officer at Buffalo paint manufacturer Pratt & Lambert United, where he worked for 20 years until joining CTG as its vice president and chief financial officer. Boldt, who would have celebrated his 63rd birthday on Halloween, also served on the board of directors of Amherst-based self storage firm Sovran Self Storage and First Niagara Financial Group. He also was a director of Catholic Health System of Western New York, AAA Western and Central New York and Dunn Tire LLC.more » « less
