Schambach to leave CSC

Pat Schambach

Pat Schambach, who served more than three decades in the government, is retiring from CSC.

Pat Schambach, the longtime agency CIO who is now a vice president and general manager for federal IT contractor CSC, told colleagues on July 2 that he is leaving the firm. Schambach's retirement will become official at the end of August.

"People have often asked me if I missed working for the government," Schambach wrote in an email that was shared with FCW, "and my standard answer has been that all I really miss are the people! Now I'll be saying the same thing about what I miss about CSC."

Schambach, who won FCW's Eagle Award in 2003, spent more than three decades in government service before moving to the private sector; he was the Transportation Security Administration's first CIO, and served in that same capacity for the Secret Service and the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. After leaving government in 2004, Schambach spent four years with Nortel Government Solutions. He has been with CSC since 2008.

No word yet on Schambach's future plans.
