Greg Godbout, chief technology officer and digital services lead at the Environmental Protection Agency, has signed on with cBrain, an international provider of digital workflow, knowledge processing, records management and communication software packages.

He will join the company on May 1 and add "strong insight into U.S. government digital transformation" to the company's operations, according to a press release.

Godbout has been a central figure in spreading innovative digital approaches across federal agencies. Before joining EPA, he was executive director and co-founder of the General Services Administration's 18F digital workshop, a 2013 Presidential Innovation Fellow and 2015 Federal 100 award winner.

As a Presidential Innovation Fellow and at GSA, Godbout recruited and hired dozens of software developers, product managers and designers with the goal of bringing a more agile approach and improving everyday processes in the federal government.

At cBrain, Godbout will help develop the company's F2 suite of digital public administration software, focusing on the U.S. market.

The company said Godbout will work alongside team member David Cotterill, a former deputy director at the U.K. Cabinet Office responsible for technology strategies.
