In a year of transformational change, government contractors are facing that question like never before. A few select leaders are even shaping the conversation.
For the second year in a row, WashingtonExec has assembled its list of executives who are blazing a path in uncertain times. Who are the trendsetters finding opportunities and maintaining their relevance in a crowded marketplace?
What’s big for the federal government? Deloitte Federal Services leader Dan Helfrich has kept his pulse on that question in the nearly 20 years he’s been working with federal clients. That longevity affords Helfrich a big-picture view.
Regardless of administration, Helfrich sees a continued focus on a “digital-first government,” as he puts it. True to that mission, Helfrich is leading Deloitte’s federal practice in a variety of priorities: customer experience, cyber, fraud, shared services, IT modernization and workforce, to name a few.
Why watch: Helfrich’s focus is on innovation, and ways to apply it both internally and more broadly, within the federal marketplace. He’s championing a new initiative – an internal crowdsourced-based hub to capture market-changing ideas and solutions to client challenges. Plus, he’s speaking out for more intentional innovation in the federal marketplace.
