Evan leads strategy and digital transformation efforts for our federal clients. Evan is intimately familiar with the federal information technology (IT) space. Before joining us, he served as the chief technology officer for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Office of Inspector General (HHS-OIG).

In his public sector career, Evan was responsible for helping HHS-OIG adopt proven industry IT practices and modern technologies to enhance mission capabilities in fighting fraud, waste, and abuse in the $1.3 trillion HHS portfolio. His focus was to establish digital service; implement federal mandates for IT modernization, data accountability, and transparency; and develop a modern workforce. Evan led teams to rapidly and successfully deploy a secure and compliant multi-cloud hybrid infrastructure in less than two years—which enabled modern descriptive analytics, high-performance computing, and machine learning-based predictive analytics. This platform significantly increased healthcare fraud detection capabilities and played a part in allowing some of the largest fraud takedowns by HHS-OIG, recovering billions of dollars. Before this, Evan served as the chief architect for the Administrative Offices of the U.S. Courts, where he led efforts to modernize legacy systems, implement agile transformation, and adopt cloud computing.

Evan has also led multiple cloud, DevOps, and digital services-related efforts throughout the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. His team deployed the first fully functional DevSecOps platform in Amazon Web Services for the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services’ award-winning myUSCIS program. The program was featured with President Obama at South by Southwest 2016 and TED Talks 2016 as the model for delivering modern digital government services. Before joining the government in 2012, Evan was the vice president of technology for a successful startup that focused on developing personality, cognitive, and attitude assessments for hiring, training, and employee development.

"Digital transformation and IT modernization is not about software or coding. It’s about creating tools and services that help the government function more efficiently and serve the taxpayers more effectively."
