James Gordon has joined digital transformation company DRT Strategies, Inc. as new CEO, succeeding Susan Kidd, who has transitioned to DRT’s chairman of the board.
“I am very excited to be joining the DRT team,” Gordon said. “DRT has an almost two-decade track record of successfully serving large government agencies, developing and delivering innovative capabilities and solutions, and creating a culture of inclusivity, caring, and high-performance. I believe DRT is well positioned to really grow and shape the next generation of IT in the federal space.”
Gordon brings over 30 years’ experience across federal, state, commercial and international customers, having served as president of Cognosante. Before that, he was division president at Maximus Federal, where he led the divestiture of a General Dynamics Information Technology portfolio purchased by Maximus Corp.
While at GDIT Health Solutions, Gordon led profit-and-loss divisions that employed more than 20,000 professionals and exceeded $1 billion in annual revenues.
“James is the right leader for DRT,” Kidd said. “He is outwardly focused, and we believe he will help us expand our brand, customer base, Health IT offerings, and create new opportunities for our employees. We look forward to James applying his extensive experience and proven success growing technology companies to DRT.”
Throughout his career, Gordon has served as a trusted adviser to several federal programs, including the Affordable Care Act, Cash-for-Clunkers, the Decennial Census and the Centers for Disease Control Info Program.
