IT services integrator VariQ has hired former government executive John Dvorak as its chief technology officer, a brand-new role for the company.
Dvorak will focus on driving growth in VariQ’s services and core capabilities, addressing client mission requirements, and curating partner relationships, the company said. He is charged with VariQ’s innovation center, QLabs, for cybersecurity, software development and cloud enablement.
Dvorak’s career began as an internet service provider CTO and after that, he worked as a technology executive at the FBI and the National Institutes of Health. After his time in government, he served as chief information officer for Salient CRGT and as CTO for Information Innovators Inc.
Dvorak is an active angel investor in the D.C. area and is an executive mentor, adviser and board member for companies in the cybersecurity, artificial intelligence, law enforcement and emerging technologies sectors.
“John is a dynamic future-focused leader whose contributions will further enable VariQ to provide relevant, mission-critical services to our federal and local government clients across our business portfolio,” VariQ Founder and CEO Ben Edson said.
