Cognosante recruits new Vice President & General Manager

G2X TAKE: Having only recently added a new President to spearhead overall strategic direction and growth, while overseeing the day-to-day operations of the company, this established leader in health IT solutions and services for Federal and public health agencies adds another piece to the puzzle by recruiting Chad Thyes, a well-known executive with nearly 20 years of progressive responsibility in business transformation and experience driving mission critical programs.  

Thyes will bring with him experience gained implementing large scale business processing programs for Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services and across the broader FedCiv market at FTC, DOT, and DHS, holding P&L responsibility of $110MM annually, and successful capture of over $4.5B in contract backlog at CMS and other agencies. The new President and Thyes both worked at GDIT at the same time.

Prior roles include:

  • VP Operations – Missionside
  • Program VP – GDIT
  • PMO Operations Manager – Lockheed Martin
