mentor and student

The American Council for Technology-Industry Advisory Council announced its 32 government and private sector employees who will pair up in preparation for future roles in senior executive service and corporate executive officer positions.

The 2014 Partners Program includes 16 government employees and 16 industry counterparts who were nominated by their organizations and chosen by a panel made up of government and industry executives.

“ACT-IAC advocates for a closer alignment of the government and private sector in the federal IT community and the Partners Program embodies that mission,” Kay Ely, 2014 Partners Program government chairwoman, said in a prepared statement. “The differentiator of the program is that each government and industry participant is paired with their counterpart to engage in thoughtful dialogue and training throughout the year.”

A quarter of the public sector selections came from the General Services Administration. Among the companies represented are IBM, Booz Allen Hamilton and Cisco.

The government participants are:

Dawn Banks-Waller, EPA

Michael Palmer, DHS
Lori Parker, NASA
Hemanth Setty, Recovery Accountability and Transparency Board
Mary Ann Wangemann, University of Virginia
