Kathleen Flanagan, president and CEO of Abt Associates, was elected secretary. Rod Mateer, a partner at Deloitte, remains the association’s treasurer.
“We are truly fortunate to have Ellen take the reins as chair,” said Stan Soloway, PSC president and CEO. “She is highly regarded across the industry and has been an indispensable member of the executive committee for several years.”
