McCabe joins Deloitte to focus on digital

Kymm McCabe

Value Storm Growth Partners founder and former ASI Government CEO Kymm McCabe has joined Deloitte to focus on the firm's digital practice with the federal government. As a principal at Deloitte, she told FCW, her primary activity will be "helping to engage with the clients...to develop and execute solutions to try to bring their organizations and their missions into the digital space."

The hire is expected to be officially announced later on June 7.

McCabe, who won a 2015 Federal 100 award for her leadership on acquisition reform, said she spent the past 18 months doing commercial consulting primarily because she "wanted to be able to understand what capabilities were in the commercial space that we could bring back" into government. Deloitte Digital, she added, "has an incredible capability and platform for that."

McCabe said some of her Value Storm clients would be following her to Deloitte while others were being handed off to other firms. Her primary focus, however, will be on working with federal agencies to map and execute their digital efforts.

In addition to ASI Government and her own firm, McCabe has held senior positions at the U.S. Army, ICF International, Advanced Performance Consulting Group, the Alliance for Converging Technologies and EDS. But she said her position at Deloitte is intended to be "my last job."

The role will evolve over time, McCabe predicted, but "right now my focus is on making sure that we have the right solutions and capabilities, and that we're having the right conversations" with government agencies.
