One of the traditions at ACT-IAC's annual Management of Change conference is the naming of new leadership for the industry side of the organization. At the evening proceedings on May 18, departing Executive Chair Dan Chenok announced the Dave McClure had been elected as Industry Advisory Council executive vice chair. 

IAC has a built-in succession plan, where an industry leader serves one term as vice-chair before ascending to the top job. Current Executive Vice Chair Ted Davies will take over for Chenok this summer, and McClure will be in line to succeed him in 2016.

Chenok said that McClure, with his deep experience in both industry and government, was a great pick to help lead the organization -- noting his previous service on the ACT-IAC Executive Advisory Board and recognition as the John J. Franke Award recipient in 2013. "He's a visionary," Chenok told FCW. "The organization will be in terrific hands."

McClure, who retired from the General Services Administration in 2014 and is now chief strategist for the Veris Group, said he was excited to return to a larger role in ACT-IAC -- particularly for a two-year stint that will span a transition in administrations. "It'll be a fun time, and exciting," he said. "It's my kind of environment."

IAC also announce the selection of four new executive committee members: Susan Becker of Unisys, Malcolm Harden of CGI Federal, Richard Spires of Resilient Network Systems and Paul Strasser of PPC.

McClure and Spires are both winners of FCW's Government Eagle Award, and both write occasional columns for FCW.
