AT&T bolsters public-sector team

Michael Leff, AT&T Government Solutions

AT&T Government Solutions announced Jan. 21 that Michael Leff, formerly a managing director at Accenture, was named a vice president and will lead AGS across federal civilian departments and agencies.

Leff is the third senior executive to join AGS's public sector group in recent months. Former General Services Administration CIO Casey Coleman's first day on the job as client executive vice president was Jan. 21. Former Agriculture Department CIO Chris Smith, another onetime Accenture exec, joined AGS in November as vice president for technology.

"Joining the AT&T Government Solutions team is a tremendous opportunity," Leff said in a press release. "I'm looking forward to combining the strength of AT&T's expansive network and resources with my own experience in assisting civilian agencies to achieve and advance their missions."

Before Leff's tenure at Accenture, he worked for Lockheed Martin for 14 years.
