Four ex-feds join IT consulting firm

Four former government IT executives have joined the staff of the Washington consulting firm McConnell International LLC.

Joining McConnell are:

  • John Reece, who in April left the IRS as CIO and deputy commissioner for modernization
  • Charles Self, who retired at the end of July after 34 years in government
  • John Tritak, former director of the Critical Infrastructure Assurance Office
  • retired Coast Guard Rear Adm. Gordon G. Piche'.

    Reece, who was once Time Warner Inc.'s CIO, headed the IRS modernization effort for a little more than two years.

    Self was a longtime fixture at the General Services Administration, where he was credited with, among other things, introducing the concept of seat management. He was deputy commissioner of GSA's Federal Technology Service when he retired.

    Tritak, whose government service also includes a stint at the State Department, was CIAO director from mid-2000 until January.

    Piche' served in the Coast Guard for 34 years, including as director of personnel management.
