International businessman, avid traveler, relentless charmer, loving husband and father, passed away peacefully at his home in Wainscott, NY. Michel was a pioneer of IT consulting and the former founder of Cap Gemini America as well as one of Cap Gemini's principal executives for more than 25 years both in France and the USA. More recently he has devoted himself to the charities Surgeons of Hope, East End Disability Associates and L'Arche, of which his youngest daughter Aurore is a member. For all his efforts on behalf of France, he was named Chevalier of the French Legion of Honor and Officer of the National Order of Merit. He was born in 1939 in Marseille, France and has lived in New York for the past 25 years. Recently, he took to writing his memoirs (Bastille Day A Milwaukee and 05-14-39: Conversations with Valerie Berty) and his words tell his story best. He described himself as a boy as a charmer, which he was until the very end. Always eager to entertain with a song, a joke or a fun story, Michel loved people. His family and friends will remember him for his humor, his generosity, his love and enthusiasm for life. He is survived by his wife, Marie-Eve; his children, Valerie, Jean-Benoit, Apolline and Aurore; his grandchildren, Sinclair, Winston, Sibley and Mathieu. He was preceded in death by his eldest daughter, Caroline. A service will be held on Sunday, February 18 at 3pm at the Queen of the Most Holy Rosary Church, 2350 Montauk Hwy, Bridgehampton, NY 11932. Donations in his memory may be sent to: L'Arche Long Island, PO Box 354, Riverhead, NY 11901.
To offer your sympathy during this difficult time, you can now have memorial trees planted in a National Forest in memory of your loved one.

Michel Berty était un meneur d'hommes extraordinaire, un très grand manager, très généreux et très équitable. Nous avons eu l'honneur de travailler à CAP SOGETI avec lui ou dans ces équipes et avons beaucoup appris de lui. Sa simplicité et la chaleur de son contact font que nous gardons un très bon souvenir de cette période, et que nous sommes bouleversés par sa disparition.

Aurore and Marie-Eve,
My most sincere sympathy goes out to the entire Berty family. I was so shocked and heartbroken to hear about Michel's passing. Michel was a wonderful guy who always greeted me with a warm smile when I saw him at Riverview School on family weekends. I will miss his great sense of humor.
