Nov 6, 2018

Senior Exec Selected to Join Highly Distinguished Group of Public, Academic and Industry Leaders 

ICF today announced that Senior Vice President John Paczkowski has been selected by The National Academy of Public Administration (Academy) for inclusion in its 2018 Class of Fellows, in recognition of his outstanding career of public service and his considerable expertise in public administration. Induction of the 40 new Fellows occurred during the Academy’s annual Fall Meeting, November 1-2 in Washington, D.C.

“I am pleased to welcome John Paczkowski to the 2018 Class of Fellows,” said Academy President and CEO Terry Gerton. “Our Fellows are nationally recognized for their contributions to the field of public administration and John is no exception. The 2018 class is an outstanding group, representing the best in public service, and will enrich our Fellowship, especially as we launch an effort to address new Grand Challenges in Public Administration.”

John currently leads ICF’s homeland security and national resilience practice serving both public and private sector clients with emergency management, infrastructure resilience and defense mission assurance services. He also currently serves on the Council of Executives for the Center for Cyber and Homeland Security at George Washington University. Prior to joining ICF, John served as Director for Emergency Management and Security at the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, where he was a recognized leader in regional homeland security efforts following 9/11.

“John’s selection is a true testament to his distinguished career in public service and a positive reflection on ICF and the advice and support John and his colleagues provide to senior public officials each and every day,” said Ellen Glover, executive vice president for ICF and Academy Fellow (Class of 2015).

In addition to John’s induction, Jeffrey Neal, senior vice president for ICF and Academy Fellow (Class of 2013), was elected as chair of the Academy’s board.

Selection of the Academy’s Fellows follows a rigorous review of the individual’s contributions to the field of public administration and policy. A Fellows Nominating Committee makes its recommendations to the full Fellowship, which then votes on those individuals nominated to be a Fellow. The 2018 class joins nearly 900 Academy Fellows -- including former cabinet officers, members of Congress, governors, mayors and state legislators, as well as prominent scholars, business executives, nonprofit leaders and public administrators.
