G2X TAKE: With the recent change in administration and several major transformation efforts underway, it can be hard to keep up with who is going where. Included here are two more changes G2X has been made aware of.
The first – VA recently recruited John Everett, who spent the past 10+ years at FBI, most recently as a Senior Executive for their Cloud Program Management Office, to serve as the VA’s new Executive Director for Demand Management. The posted job description for this SES level role states it reports directly to the Deputy Assistant Secretary, Enterprise Program Management Office within OI&T and is responsible for policy, planning, tools, governance, metrics and dashboard development and management, to include a focus on improving the effectiveness of program operations and leading line and staff organization in the performance of the EPMO and VA mission.
A second move to note is that the fast-rising Charokee Alana Morris, who recently served as the Chief, Portfolio Investment Management with oversight and execution of the $300M+ Veterans Benefits Administration (VBA) investment portfolio for business applications, is reported to have taken on a new role at VA as the Director for Business Process Management, where she will help lead Financial and Data management activities, functions, and modernization plans for VA operating programs.
