FAIRFAX, Va., June 13, 2018 – It is with great pleasure to announce the hire of Jake Zimmerman as a Federal Account Executive responsible for our National Security and Foreign Affairs portfolio. Zimmerman, a results-oriented leader, brings a proven track record transforming strategic growth priorities into executable plans aligned to client's mission objectives, industry innovations, and evolving agency policies. His success helping organizations optimize investments and generating tangible outcomes is due largely in part to his ability to listen and understand different perspectives and communicate across all levels of the organization and senior leadership.

When we asked what Jake is most excited about, he said, “I look forward to rolling up my sleeves with our clients and working on challenging issues like driving secure and flexible cloud strategies, enhancing mobility, and leveraging virtualization to enhance our country's public safety and national security posture".
Jake joins us after six years at PricewaterhouseCoopers Public Sector (PwC), a global consulting firm, where he served as a Customer Relationship Executive in the International Public Sector. He was responsible for driving growth with the Department of State, U.S. Agency for International Development and other federal civilian agency customers. Specifically, he focused on delivering performance management, operational effectiveness, and IT transformation engagements. Prior to PwC, Jake held business development, sales, and marketing roles with government contractors including STG and SAIC.
A native of northern Virginia, Jake attended college at the University of Colorado—Boulder where he earned a bachelor’s degree in marketing and communication.
