Paul Brubaker is joining Ashburn, Va.-based IT Cadre as vice president, strategic accounts and customer strategy. An official announcement by the company, which does enterprise systems engineering and software development for both federal agencies and commercial clients, is expected on Aug. 25.

Brubaker confirmed the move to FCW, and said he'd long been an admirer of IT Cadre's "low key" but effective approach. "I was incredibly impressed by the work they did for me [at the Defense Department]," he added.

Brubaker, a two-time winner of FCW's Federal 100 award, has held a number of leadership positions in both government and the private sector. He held executive branch posts under Presidents Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama -- most recently as director of planning and performance management in DOD's Office of the Deputy Chief Management Officer.

Earlier in his career, Brubaker served as an evaluator with what was then known as the General Accounting Office, and as an investigator, deputy staff director and minority staff director of the Senate Subcommittee on Oversight of Government Management -- where he worked with then-Sen. William S. Cohen (R-Maine) in the effort to enact the Clinger-Cohen Act.

Brubaker left the Pentagon in May 2014 to join AirWatch by VMware as director for U.S. federal government. He subsequently left AirWatch earlier this summer.

For IT Cadre, the hire comes on the heels of several other management shuffles. The firm will have to share Brubaker's attention for at least the next few months, however, and possibly longer: Brubaker is on the ballot this fall in Virginia's 86th District for an open House of Delegates seat.
