Norman Lorentz, who recently stepped down as chief technology officer of the US Office of Management and Budget, has joined DigitalNet Government Solutions as its senior vice president, the company announced Friday.
In his new role at Herndon, Virginia-based DigitalNet, Lorentz will help shape the company's strategy and technology direction. He will be responsible for the growth and operations of business with the Department of Homeland Security and other government agencies.
Lorentz brings more than 30 years of experience in private industry and government, most recently serving as the first CTO of the OMB. He had also been acting administrator for e-government and IT at the OMB since last month. That post was filled earlier this week, when the White House announced that Karen Evans, CIO at the Department of Energy, would become full-time head of the administration's e-government initiatives.
At the OMB, Lorentz spearheaded the White House's efforts to overhaul the federal government's IT infrastructure and processes.
Lorentz directed the development of the Federal Enterprise Architecture, the first ever business process depiction for the federal government. During his tenure at the OMB, he was also a member of the CIO Council Executive Committee.
Before joining the OMB, Lorentz was senior vice president and CTO at Dice , where he directed the overall development of technology strategy and infrastructure.
Lorentz also spent six years at the US Postal Service, where he held several positions, including chief quality officer, overseeing and implementing customer service programs that set both financial and service records, and senior vice president and CTO with oversight of all technology investments.
In addition, Lorentz spent 18 years in a variety of technology positions at US West, now Qwest Communications International
