Curtis Recognized for Leadership in Federal Government IT Industry

ARLINGTON, VA--(Marketwire - March 29, 2011) - Vangent, Inc., a leading global provider of information management and strategic business process solutions, announced today that Mac Curtis, President and CEO of Vangent, was named a 2011 Federal 100 Award winner by Federal Computer Week, a leading publication for federal government executives and policymakers focused on the business of technology in government. The awards program, now in its 22nd year, recognizes leaders who have shown an outstanding commitment to the federal government IT industry.

Curtis is receiving this award in recognition of his leadership in the federal government IT industry and for his efforts in affecting change, progress and efficiency in determining how the federal government acquires, develops and manages IT. Curtis was selected from a highly competitive field of hundreds of nominees in what is considered the "Academy Awards" of the government IT industry. Among the winners, 23 work in the private sector, two in state and local government and 75 in federal government, with 55 in civilian agencies and 20 in the defense sector. 

Curtis has more than 25 years of senior level executive experience in the federal government contracting industry. His leadership of Vangent began in 1999 when he joined NCS as Vice President and General Manager of the Government Services Division. In July 2000, NCS was acquired by Pearson, PLC, and Curtis became President and CEO of Pearson Government Solutions. With the Veritas purchase of Pearson Government Solutions in February 2007, Curtis became President and CEO of Vangent.

Before joining Vangent, Curtis served as Senior Vice President at DynCorp in Fairfax, Virginia. He also served as President for TechServ, LLC, directing capture management, marketing and operations and building a successful start-up business in the then-nascent computer systems outsourcing marketplace. He holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Civil Engineering from Virginia Military Institute and serves on the boards of George Mason University's Volgenau School of Information Technology and Engineering and the Fairfax County Chamber of Commerce. He also serves as Chairman of the Board of the Professional Services Council.

"I am humbled and honored to be among such an outstanding group of federal government leaders," Curtis said. "This award is a testament to the hard work of the entire Vangent team as we work to support the critical missions of our customers."
