Liaison International: Behringer named CEO

As part of a plan to expand management resources, Liaison International, Inc. has named Greenwich resident Michael Behringer as CEO and president of the company.

Liaison International provides integrated software, services and data offerings for professional and educational associations, universities and accrediting agencies. Mr. Behringer, who had been Chief Operating Officer, will lead the expansion of the company’s product offerings, including its flagship Centralized Application Services (CAS) as well as its diversification into other related offerings and adjacent markets.

Liaison’s founder, George Haddad, will become chairman, where he will focus on strategic market opportunities, product innovation, international expansion, and other activities. Mr. Behringer’s promotion is a key component in Mr. Liaison’s plan to expand management resources, invest in new technologies and services and extend its client offerings, according to the founder.

“Michael is a superb choice to take on this role,” Mr. Haddad said. “Since joining us in July, he has immersed himself in the organization, its products and technology, as well as the staff and clients that have made Liaison successful over the last 22 years. I look forward to working with Michael as Liaison continues to write its success story of innovation.”

Mr. Behringer brings more than 20 years of experience in the information and service industries to his new position. Most recently, he was executive in residence at the private equity firm Warburg Pincus. Mr. Behringer’s career has included senior management roles at media and information companies including Canon Communications, Primedia Inc. and Discovery Communications.

Mr. Behringer is also a director of the Gordian Group, a provider of construction cost data, technology, software and services. He is also an executive director of the Columbia College Alumni Association and co-chairman of its Annual Fund.

“Liaison’s growth has always come from understanding the individual needs of our clients,” Mr. Behringer said. “Our services free institutions from administrative burden and provide them the tools and data to focus on the real business of admissions and accreditation. Not only will that not change, but we will continue to invest in Liaison’s ability to help our clients achieve those important objectives.”
