GSA's Johnson to join Deep Water Point

John Johnson, who is retiring from the General Services Administration on May 2, announced today that he will become a partner at consulting firm Deep Water Point.

Johnson has been at GSA for nine years, most recently as assistant commissioner for Integrated Technology Services at the Federal Acquisition Service (FAS). After working at GSA, “the largest bureaucracy in the world,” he said he will now “help companies navigate the government space.”

He joins four other partners at Deep Water Point: Howard Seeger, formerly a vice president at Science Applications International Corp. and Qwest Communications; Scott Hastings, a former chief information officer at the Homeland Security Department; Steve Kalish, who was president of Crown Consulting and of Computer Sciences Corp.'s federal sector; and John Przysucha, a former deputy division manager at SAIC, a senior associate at Booz Allen Hamilton and a senior executive at the Energy Department.

Ed O'Hare, CIO at FAS, will take over Johnson’s role, Johnson said in an interview with reporters.
