Former Office of Management and Budget Controller Dave Mader has joined Deloitte Consulting, the firm announced on Jan. 30.

In announcing the hire, Dan Helfrich, who leads Deloitte's federal government services practice, praised Mader's "insight into government operations and the impact that he makes on whatever project he takes on."

Mader spent three decades driving IT modernization and business process reforms at the IRS before moving the private sector in the early 2000s. He returned to government service in 2014, and spent much of the past two and a half years pushing for a governmentwide embrace of shared services.

Mader won a Federal 100 award in 2016 for his work to build both support systems and agency buy-in. He expressed hope at a December 2016 event that the resulting shared services infrastructure would be embraced and expanded by President Donald Trump's administration.

"Folks in the Bush administration set the foundation," Mader said at the time. "Maybe what we've done is put the first floor on, but there's a couple more floors that need to be built in this structure."

Mader will "lead the expansion of Deloitte's shared services offerings," the firm announced.
