Jefferson Consulting Group announced Janet Clement will succeed Julia Susman as CEO, following Susman’s retirement June 1 after the sale of her company.
“Janet is the right leader at the right time to ensure Jefferson’s continued growth and success,” Susman said. “She is a collaborative, dynamic leader with three decades of experience directing growth, change and improvement, and large-scale transformation with a focus on customer solutions. We are delighted to welcome her to Jefferson.”
Clement was most recently the chief operating officer of GKG. She has worked with defense, homeland and civilian agencies providing mission support solutions like shared services, human capital, program management, category management, change and organization management, strategy, software development and IT infrastructure.
Before joining industry, Clement led agency strategic planning, human capital planning and organization development at the U.S. Mint. She began her government service as a contracting officer for the Air Force.
“I am honored to succeed Ms. Susman who built a company with a strong reputation for integrity, innovation, and thought leadership,” Clement said. “I am also extremely impressed with the consulting team’s results-focused expertise, experience, and relentless commitment to excellence. It’s an exciting time to be joining this close knit, results-driven firm.”
During Susman’s 32-year tenure, Jefferson expanded to include two successful companies: Jefferson Solutions, which provides acquisition, human capital and program management services to the federal government, and Jefferson Business Consulting, which advises commercial clients on how to identify, create, win, sustain and grow federal contracts.
Allan Burman, longtime president of Jefferson Solutions, said:
“I am delighted to be working with Janet. Her extensive experience gives her a unique perspective to lead Jefferson and help our federal clients achieve program and mission success.”
