Verizon exec joins TechAmerica board

Verizon's Sonya Cork

Sonya Cork, vice president of public sector markets for Verizon Enterprise Solutions, has joined the TechAmerica Public Sector Board of Directors.

Cork, a 26-year communications and IT solutions veteran in civilian and defense agencies, will provide significant insight to the board as it guides the trade association’s technology advocacy on important issues to the federal and state contracting communities.

She currently oversees business development and sales activities for defense and national security accounts for Verizon.

“Sonya brings an extensive background in the world of government contracting that will help inform the policy positions we take on behalf of our membership,” said Shawn Osborne, president and CEO of TechAmerica.

In a press statement, Cork said cloud, mobility and cybersecurity are driving change in the business of government. Procurement reform too, she said, will play a large role in how quickly advanced technologies are put to use by government.

“As a leading advocate for the information and communications technology industry, TechAmerica has taken a leadership role in promoting the adoption of advanced technologies. By identifying potential supply chain and procurement reforms that will help pave the way for broader use, the power of technology can be unlocked to enable new and more efficient ways of delivering government services,” Cork said.
