Government consultancy LMI has named Karen Britton chief digital officer and vice president of marketing and communications, and Josh Wilson vice president of digital and analytic solutions, a new business unit resulting from the merger of its advanced analytics and digital services practices.
CEO and President Brian Fitzpatrick said the company believes this realignment will simplify how its customers buy these services and accelerate its delivery of solutions.
“Karen and Josh are outstanding leaders and colleagues who will make this transition seamless for our organization and customers,” he said. “I am excited to see them represent LMI in their new roles.”
Wilson will lead a capabilities practice encompassing advanced analytics and artificial intelligence, data and enterprise operations, and digital solutions. A former U.S. Army officer with two overseas tours focused on infrastructure reconstruction efforts in Iraq, Wilson previously served in Deloitte’s public sector practice.
Additionally, Wilson has a bachelor’s degree in systems engineering from the U.S. Military Academy and a master’s degree in engineering management from Missouri University of Science and Technology.
Britton will oversee LMI’s external communications efforts, with an emphasis on growing its digital presence. As deputy chief information officer and subsequent CIO of the Executive Office of the President between 2009 and 2014, she helped enable technologies and open source approaches to deliver President Barack Obama’s agenda to the American people.
Britton earned her bachelor’s degree in industrial engineering and operations research from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst and her master’s degree in management from Florida Institute of Technology. She is also a graduate of the Defense Systems Management College and the Excellence in Government Fellows Program.
