Maurice “Mo” Stewart, who just retired as associate deputy assistant secretary for logistics and supply chain management at the Veterans Affairs Department, has joined The Ambit Group, the company announced Sept. 12.
Stewart now will be vice president of business solutions at the IT management firm. In his new position, he will be responsible for mentoring and leading the business development team, with a focus on sales, capture management and proposal development.
Stewart was a 2012 Federal 100 award winner.
While at the VA, Stewart led the department’s Supplier Relationship Transformation program, through which VA officials surveyed vendors and held industry forums to get feedback. The Ambit Group helped the VA with the program.
The company also promoted Bob Nunnally from director to vice president to advance the company's strategic offerings to the federal market, the firm said.

Government jobs are for clock-watching drones, in it for the pension. Bloggers post from the basement in their pajamas, avoiding the responsibilities of a real job.
Neither stereotype was ever fair, and each is less accurate now than ever. Anyone who doubts it should check out a current job opening over in Foggy Bottom.
The State Department is seeking a GS-13 blogger for its Bureau of International Information Programs. It is a permanent position focused on bringing subject-matter experts into State’s “digital diplomacy” efforts, through “blogs, web chats, and online discussion.” And a Secret security clearance is required.
Would-be bloggers had better move fast, however. The position’s open period ends Sept. 13.

A Defense Department official has been tapped to serve as General Services Administration’s new commissioner for the Public Buildings Service.
Dorothy Robyn was named to the role Sept. 4. She previously oversaw the controversial Defense Base Closure and Realignment process and served as deputy undersecretary of defense for installations and environment.
Before her government career, Robyn was a principal with The Brattle Group, an economic consulting firm that focuses on competition and antitrust, energy and the environment. Prior to that, she served on the White House staff as special assistant to the president for economic policy and as senior staff member of the White House National Economic Council.
Robyn replaces Linda Chero, who took on an acting role in April when then-PBS Commissioner Robert Peck was fired for his involvement in the conference-spending scandal.
Citing an internal memo from GSA Acting Administrator Dan Tangherlini, The Washington Post reports that Tangherlini expressed intent to get rid of PBS board of directors to crystallize Robyn’s authority and responsibility.
