Puvvada selected to lead strategy and direction for federal technology contracting industry group
RESTON, Va., December 15, 2017 – Unisys Corporation (NYSE: UIS) today announced that Venkatapathi "PV" Puvvada, president of Unisys Federal, has been elected to serve as chair of the Professional Services Council (PSC) board of directors.
PSC is an industry trade group that represents the interests of technology and professional services companies serving the U.S. federal government. In his new role at PSC, Puvvada will lead in guiding the development and implementation of the group's strategic priorities to provide unparalleled value to members by serving as the leading voice for the government professional and technology services industry.
Today's announcement is the latest in a series of leadership appointments for Puvvada at PSC. In June 2017, Puvvada was elected as vice chair of PSC's executive committee and board of directors. He also previously served as chair of PSC's Civilian Agencies Council that focuses on the acquisition policies and strategies of federal civilian agencies, including the departments of Homeland Security, Veterans Affairs, Health and Human Services and Energy.
"PV has served in many leadership roles at PSC over the years, and this week's election represents an opportunity for PSC to draw on his years of experience," said David J. Berteau, president and CEO of PSC. "His knowledge and willingness to collaborate across all sectors of the industry will serve our organization well as we renew our commitment to making the government a smarter customer and better buyer."
Beyond his work leading the U.S. federal government business for Unisys, Puvvada has received many awards and recognition for his contributions to the federal IT community. In 2015, for example, Federal Computer Week recognized Puvvada for this work with its prestigious Eagle Award, an annual award recognizing "the best of the best" of those who have made significant contributions to federal government IT.
"As chairman, I will work to ensure that PSC focuses on strategic priorities that provide high-value services for our member companies, building on PSC's success over the past 45 years," Puvvada said. "Working with PSC members and key government stakeholders, we will continue our mission to enable a more fair and competitive government contracting industry in 2018 and beyond."
