Lante, a Web consultancy that specializes in the development of online marketplaces, named industry veteran John Corsiglia its chief operating officer. Prior to joining Lante, Corsiglia was COO of 2nd Century Communications, a Virginia-based company that hosts and manages software for its clients. Corsiglia, who will oversee Lante's day-to-day operations, has also held management roles at AT&T, McKinsey and Accenture, formerly known as Andersen Consulting.
Chicago-based Lante has made a string of executive hires lately. The company recently added a new chief strategy officer and appointed a managing director of its Eastern region. Earlier this month, the company warned of a wider first-quarter loss, citing tough market conditions. Lante is slated to release quarterly results Thursday.
