The American Council for Technology and Industry Advisory Council announced April 11 that Dave Wennergren would be taking over as the organization’s CEO.

Most recently a managing director at Deloitte, Wennergren has previously held leadership positions at the Professional Services Council, CACI international and at the Department of Defense.

“It is truly an honor to be selected as the CEO of ACT-IAC — an extraordinary and longstanding force for good in the federal technology community,” said Wennergren in a news release. “I look forward to the tremendous opportunities to work with the leadership teams, volunteers and staff at ACT-IAC to build on the organization’s outstanding legacy and continue to advance the cause of collaboration, innovation and more effective mission results for government.”

ACT-IAC is an organization whose goal, according to the group, is to foster collaboration and innovation between the private sector and government in the area of information technology. The organization hosts collaborative conferences, forums and awards in the federal IT space.

Wennergren replaces current ACT-IAC Executive Director Kenneth Allen, who will be leaving the organization after leading it for 14 years.

“I am sorry to see Ken Allen leave as he has been invaluable to advancing the partnership values of ACT-IAC. I’m excited to welcome Dave Wennergren to the position and look forward to working closely with him to advance the Council’s values and principles for the benefit of public service,” said ACT Executive Committee President Renee Wynn in the news release.

Wennergren will start his role as ACT-IAC CEO May 13.
