Her emphasis will be on Deloitte Digital, the world’s first creative digital consultancy, which helps leading consumer brands and governments deliver their missions real time, anytime, anywhere and on any device.
“When you need an innovative thinker and a leader in government transformation, Kymm McCabe is that person,” Deloitte Consulting LLP principal and federal government services leader Dan Helfrich said. “Government technology is on the precipice of tremendous opportunity as government agencies are not only embarking on their journeys to digital, but also rethinking how IT is managed and acquired. Kymm is a change agent and we’re excited that she will bring her energy, passion and experience to our clients, and make an even bigger impact in the way technology serves our country.”
“What brought me to Deloitte was the ability to continue what I am passionate about – working with our amazing public servants to transform how government carries out its missions – but now at a much larger, more impactful scale,” McCabe said. “Throughout my career inside and outside of government, I have always admired Deloitte’s ability to co-create solutions with clients, execute the full lifecycle solution, and deliver results. I am excited to roll up my sleeves with our federal clients as they reframe their aspirations of delivering agency missions using new technologies and digital channels. And I am thrilled that Deloitte Digital is the platform from which I will continue to engage on government’s most complex issues, including big ‘A’ acquisition and delivering innovation to the public sector.”
McCabe has held senior level positions with the U.S. Army, ASI Government, ICF International, Advanced Performance Consulting Group, Don Tapscott’s Alliance for Converging Technologies and EDS.
