Former Office of Management and Budget Controller Danny Werfel has joined the Boston Consulting Group as a director in its public sector practice, according to a company announcement.
“Danny brings an exceptional track record and understanding of the challenges facing government agencies today,” said Sharon Marcil, a senior partner who leads BCG's Washington, DC-based Public Sector practice.
Werfel was closely involved in the White House’s campaign to reduce improper federal payments and helped create the Treasury Department’s Office of Financial Innovation and Transformation, which seeks to move agencies toward more use of shared financial management services.
Last May, Obama tapped him to temporarily lead the IRS after the previous acting commissioner left amid an uproar over an inspector general’s finding that the agency used “inappropriate criteria” for evaluating conservative groups seeking tax-exempt status.
