Former Top DoD Tech Exec Wennergren to Head PSC Tech Policy
Arlington, Va., May 20, 2014
—The Professional Services Council (PSC) today announced that former DoD official and current CACI Vice President Dave Wennergren will be joining the Council as Senior Vice President of Technology Policy. In that role, a new one at PSC, he will lead the association’s newly launched Technology Policy Council, which is PSC’s primary vehicle for addressing the range of technology-related business issues. He is expected to start on June 9.
“Dave is one of a kind,” said PSC President and CEO Stan Soloway. “He is one of the most admired leaders in and around the government technology community and brings extraordinary insight, wisdom and perspective to the role. He is perfectly positioned to help craft and execute our technology policy strategy and integrate it into our longstanding, overarching acquisition and business policy leadership.”
Prior to leaving public service in 2013, Wennergren held a series of increasingly senior roles in the Department of the Navy and DoD. He served as Department of the Navy CIO, Deputy CIO for DoD, Vice-Chair of the Federal CIO Council and as DoD’s Assistant Deputy Chief Management Officer. In those roles he has been at the forefront of every major technology issue in recent years. He is also a Fellow at the National Academy of Public Administration and teaches graduate level classes at the Brookings Institution. During his career he has received numerous major awards and honors, including the Presidential Rank Award, the DoD Distinguished Service Award, and the Fed 100 Eagle Award.
“The market for professional services and technology is undergoing a significant shift,” said Soloway. “And our goal is to ensure that we are in a position to help our members and the government effectively navigate it. To that end, we have made a conscious decision to invest in broadening our capabilities and we are thrilled that Dave will be a key a part of that process.”
