FCW : May 30, 2014
May 30, 2014 FCW.COM 9 CompTIA acquires TechAmerica Computer industry group CompTIA has acquired TechAmerica in a deal that expands CompTIA's reach into the enterprise and federal contract- ing environments. The merger came on the same day that TechAmerica announced a settlement in a $5 million lawsuit with its rival, the Information Technology Industry Council, over three employees who left Tech- America for ITI in Novem- ber 2013. Some TechAmerica staff, including President and CEO Shawn Osborne, will leave the merged group. Osborne told FCW that all of TechAmerica's policy, business intel- ligence and research functions will remain; the reductions will come in redundant business functions such as accounting and nancial management. Mike Hettinger, the association's senior vice president for the public sector, will stay on, as will all of TechAmerica's policy staff, Osborne added. He and CompTIA President and CEO Todd Thibodeaux said the merg- er brings together TechAmerica's enterprise, government and policy expertise with CompTIA's strengths in technical certi cation and training. Osborne said TechAmerica had been talking with a number of orga- nizations about a possible merger over the past few years as the organization saw repeated, though narrowing, annual losses. As Tech- America stabilized, "we began look- ing for merger partners. Our rst choice was CompTIA. " --- Mark Rockwell Takai, Brubaker leave DOD Teri Takai, CIO at the Defense Depart- ment, and Paul Brubaker, DOD's director of planning and perfor- mance management, resigned their positions effective May 2. Their departures add to a grow- ing list of exits by DOD execu- tives. Deputy CIO Robert Carey left the Pentagon for the private sector in late March, Deputy Chief Management Of cer Eliza- beth McGrath left at the end of 2013 for a position at Deloitte Consulting, and Assistant DCMO David Wennergren retired in July 2013 and is now at CACI International. Takai did not respond to inquiries regarding her plans. Brubaker has joined AirWatch, the VMware-owned provider of mobile security and enterprise mobility management, as director for the federal market. He has held a number of leadership positions in the government and the private sector and is a two-time win- ner of FCW's Federal 100 award. --- Sean Lyngaas and Troy K. Schneider NOAA CIO headed to Justice Joseph Klimavicz is taking over the Justice Department CIO slot left vacant when Luke McCormack moved to the Department of Homeland Security last November. Klimavicz has been CIO at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administra- tion since 2007. During his tenure, he strengthened cybersecurity, expanded high- performance computing and mod- ernized many of NOAA's business systems. Kevin Deeley will return to his role as deputy CIO after serving as acting CIO at Justice since McCor- mack's departure. --- Reid Davenport Holgate to stay on at ACT Rick Holgate, CIO at the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, will remain president of the American Council for Technology for another year. Casey Coleman, formerly CIO at the General Services Administration, left government for a senior post in AT&T's federal practice, which scuttled ACT's succession plans. She had served as executive vice presi- dent of ACT and was slated to move into the top slot this year. "Rather than try to rush to ll that, I agreed to stay on for another year, " Holgate told FCW. --- Adam Mazmanian Forman returns to TASC Mark Forman has returned to the defense systems rm TASC as vice president for IT services and cloud initiatives. He was administrator for e-gov- ernment and IT in the Of ce of Man- agement and Budget from 2001 to 2003, and he worked at TASC from 1985 to 1989 performing analyses of costs and operational effective- ness in support of Defense Department organizations.
