Maximus has named Kathleen Featheringham new vice president of artificial intelligence and machine learning.
In her new role, Featheringham will lead the development and expansion of the company’s AI and advanced analytics portfolio within the Federal Technology Consulting Services practice.
“Federal agency leaders understand the value and potential that emerging technologies such as AI, machine learning, and advanced analytics can deliver and how an experienced partner like Maximus can make that reality,” said Scott Barr, TCS practice lead.
“Kathleen brings with her more than two decades of experience at the leading edge of using AI to serve the mission of federal agencies, and her success is unmatched in the market,” Barr added. “Her addition to our team allows us to further enhance and refine our award-winning approach to technology transformations for federal agencies.”
Featheringham joins Maximus with more than 20 years of experience working with agencies across the federal government on large-scale responsible technology transformation projects. She served most recently as a director at Booz Allen Hamilton, where she established and scaled that company’s AI strategy.
“We are in the midst of an extraordinary period for federal technology, as agencies seek out new and emerging technologies to better meet their missions, improve customer experience, and deliver exceptional services,” Featheringham said.
“My career has been based upon the convergence between agency missions and artificial intelligence, with a special emphasis on the human element of adoption,” she added. “I joined Maximus to become part of a team that has shown federal agencies how the full potential of new technologies can be realized with a trusted partner.”
