The Professional Services Council announced on March 1 that longtime defense acquisition official David J. Berteau will be PSC's new CEO.  Stan Soloway, who headed the industry association for 15 years, announced his retirement last September and in February launched his own consulting firm. 

Berteau's hire was approved by the PSC board on March 1; he officially steps into the job on March 28.

Berteau has been the Defense Department's assistant secretary for logistics and materiel readiness since December 2014, and before that was senior vice president at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, where he also directed the National Security Program on Industry and Resources. He held a variety of DOD roles throughout the 1980s and early 90s, then spent nearly a decade working at SAIC.

 "I am excited to have the opportunity to lead such a respected organization in the fields of government technology and professional services," Berteau said in a statement announcing his hire. "Stan Soloway did a great job growing and improving the Council. I’m eager to build on those accomplishments." 

PSC Chairwoman Ellen Glover, who is executive vice president of ICF International, said, "we couldn't be more pleased to have as our new CEO someone with such a deep background in government services," noting that Berteau's career has consistently focused "on the heart of what PSC does."
