“Thom’s exceptional insight to the state and local market is a great addition to the Input Consulting Group,” said Alan Balutis, president and chief executive officer for government strategies at Input, in a press release.

While at Meta, Rubel, who has more than 20 years of public sector experience, helped state and local governments understand how technology could help improve their operations.
