Input creates expert consulting group

Input, a government-focused market research firm, has created a consulting group in an effort to broaden its offerings.

Four seasoned executives, two from industry and two from government, make up the group. Alan Balutis, president and chief executive officer of government strategies at Input, said more members are expected to join in the next few weeks.

The initial members of the Input Consulting Group are:

  • Stephen Benowitz, former associate director at the Office of Personnel Management.

  • Steve Carrier, former vice president of business development and strategic planning at Northrop Grumman.

  • Kenneth Johnson, former president of U.S. operations at CACI International.

  • Carlos Solari, former chief information officer of the Executive Office of the President.
  • "We think [the new consulting arm] will dramatically enhance our domain knowledge in some key areas," Balutis said in announcing the new group at Input's FedFocus 2006 conference today in Washington, D.C.
