Maximus announced that Marie Russell has been named the company’s vice president of federal alliances.
“I am thrilled to join Maximus and look forward to working with the team to build upon our established success with our strategic partners,” she said.
Maximus currently has numerous strategic alliances in the federal market with technology partners, and Russell has been tasked with deepening current partnerships and identifying new innovation partners to accelerate growth.
“Our strategic partners are a fundamental part of the Maximus story,” said Teresa Weipert, general manager of federal services at Maximus. “We have added Marie to our leadership team to improve upon that foundation by enhancing our ecosystem of technology partners, leveraging our own award-winning capabilities and delivering innovative solutions to support federal customers’ missions.”
Russell brings more than 25 years of experience supporting federal agencies providing health care, education, energy and financial services. Her most recent role was with Juniper Networks, where she worked for 8 years and held positions as senior director of the Europe, the Middle East and Africa field and partner marketing; and senior director of global partner programs.
She’s a past member of the board of directors for the Armed Forces Communications and Electronics Association International and recipient of the Chairman’s Superior Performance Award.
“As federal agencies look to the future and modernize, there is an opportunity for Maximus and our technology partners to re-imagine what is possible and find ways to do more for our customers and for our citizens,” Russell said.
