Stan Soloway announced on September 9th that he will be stepping down as Chief Executive Officer at Professional Services Council (PSC) after 15 years of service.
As someone who has been consistently named as one of the 100 most influential business leaders in Washington by the Washington Business Journal, one of the 100 most influential figures in US. Defense by Defense News and a two time winner of the Federal 100 Award, Soloway will be missed. He has grown PSC’s membership more than 300 percent since he took over in 2001.
Soloway stated in a letter to the association’s membership that he reached the “difficult decision” because “I am at that stage of my career where, if I want to do something different and substantial before I retire, the time to do so is now.” He also stated that his tenure at PSC was “a singular honor” and that he would remain fully engaged as the PSC CEO through the transition process.
Ellen Glover, Executive Vice President of ICF International and Chair of the PSC Board of Directors had this to say of Soloway’s departure, “It goes without saying that we hate to see Stan depart PSC. During the last 15 years, Stan has been an extraordinary leader for PSC, greatly expanding the association’s reach and scope and taking it to new heights. At the same time, we respect his decision and greatly appreciate his commitment to ensuring a smooth transition. The foundation of the association is very strong, and PSC will continue to provide unparalleled value to its member companies and to the government community.”
It was announced by Glover that Anne Altman, PSC Executive Committee member and IBM General Manager will be leading the search committee for Soloway’s successor.
