Cal Shintani, a 30-year govcon veteran, is joining HighPoint Global, the company announced Tuesday. He will oversee business development, capture, as well as mergers and acquisitions.
“I am very excited to join the HighPoint team,” Shintani said. “The work of this team is critical to the government’s transformation to a digital-first enterprise that is responsive to the needs of its constituents. I’m looking forward to helping grow the business as well as the influence of the citizen-first mentality of the company.”
HighPoint is a privately held company that helps the government more effectively communicate with citizens through trainings, contact center optimization, and IT quality assurance services.
“As we continue to help our customers improve their interactions with citizens, we are looking for ways to expand our work beyond traditional citizen experience contracts into all of the areas that are part of the digital experience with an organization,” said HighPoint CEO Ben Lanius.
As an experienced business development and P&L leader in the government technology industry, Shintani couldn’t be more qualified. He has worked at companies including CACI, Gray Hawk Systems (now part of ManTech), Veridian and Unisys. Shintani is also an ACT-IAC fellow, and has served as industry chair of its Voyagers Mentors-Protégé program. He is a member of the Armed Forces Communications and Electronics Association as well.
