James Flyzik last month wrapped up a 28-year career with government but not before the Industry Advisory Council staged a retirement luncheon for him in Washington.

Flyzik, whose jobs have included IT management posts with the Secret Service, Treasury CIO and, ultimately, senior adviser to the White House Office of Homeland Security, said he plans to continue working on homeland security and e-government from the private sector. He has formed a consulting firm with IT veterans Robert Guerra and Phil Kiviat.
