He also served on numerous international commissions and advisory boards, on the United States Trade Representatives International Investment Policy Advisory Commission, and was a U.S. National Commissioner to UNESCO. Additionally, Daniels has served as a senior White House advisor on international technology and as a senior advisor to the National Security Council.
Acentia, with Stottlemyer as CEO, provides lifecycle IT services and solutions to federal agencies, state and local governments, and commercial customers. Prior to Acentia, Stottlemyer was executive vice president and member of the executive management team for Inova Health System.
He was also Apogen Technologies’ founder, CEO and a member of the board of directors, leading its successful sale to QinetiQ, a publicly traded British technology company. Stottlemyer served as president of McGuireWoods Consulting and was also founder and managing director of McGuireWoods Capital Group.
Traeger concurrently serves as CEO of Pacific Siren International LLC, a diversified technology holding company, and president of VSI Pacific, a Pacific holding. Pacific Siren International’s mission is to identify and acquire strategically beneficial assets and technologies.
Traeger also serves as co-director of the Founder Institute (Washington, D.C.) and is an accomplished senior operating executive and digital entrepreneur with 30-plus years of experience growing technology-focused businesses. She has a strong track record in strategy and business development across traditional technology and digital media companies.
