Kymm McCabe joins Deloitte’s Federal Government Services practice with a focus on technology and digital

WASHINGTON, June 6, 2016—Deloitte announced today that Kymm McCabe, a longtime leader in the federal government community, joins its federal government services practice as a principal with Deloitte Consulting LLP in the technology group. McCabe’s emphasis will be on Deloitte Digital, the world’s first creative digital consultancy, which helps leading consumer brands and governments deliver their missions real-time, anytime, anywhere, and on any device.

Deloitte Digital works alongside federal agencies on their digital transformation journey. Services range from building digital strategies, implementing customer-experienced-infused digital technologies and applications, to transforming human capital, business models, and operations for the Digital Age.

When you need an innovative thinker and a leader in government transformation, Kymm McCabe is that person. Government technology is on the precipice of tremendous opportunity as government agencies are not only embarking on their journeys to digital, but also rethinking how IT is managed and acquired. Kymm is a change agent and we’re excited that she will bring her energy, passion, and experience to our clients, and make an even bigger impact in the way technology serves our country.

Dan Helfrich, principal, Deloitte Consulting LLP, and Federal Government Services leader

What brought me to Deloitte was the ability to continue what I am passionate about—working with our amazing public servants to transform how government carries out its missions—but now at a much larger, more impactful scale. Throughout my career inside and outside of government, I have always admired Deloitte’s ability to co-create solutions with clients, execute the full lifecycle solution, and deliver results. I am excited to roll up my sleeves with our federal clients as they reframe their aspirations of delivering agency missions using new technologies and digital channels. And I am thrilled that Deloitte Digital is the platform from which I will continue to engage on government’s most complex issues, including big ‘A’ acquisition and delivering innovation to the public sector.

– Kymm McCabe

McCabe has held senior level positions with the US Army, ASI Government, ICF International, Advanced Performance Consulting Group, Don Tapscott’s Alliance for Converging Technologies, and EDS. She is known for her passion for public service and application of nontraditional methods such as emerging technologies and design thinking approaches.

Most recently, McCabe founded and was the CEO of Value Storm Growth Partners which helped government and commercial clients identify and access “non-traditional” capabilities, technologies, and partners to advance new commercial strategies to meet government’s emerging needs for the Digital Age.

McCabe is a published author and is widely sought to speak on topics of innovation, large-scale transformation, leadership, strategy, and organizational growth. Additionally, McCabe has received numerous awards including Federal Computer Week’s 2015 “Federal 100,” Fairfax County Chamber of Commerce’s 2013 GovCon “Executive of the Year” award, Washington Business Journal’s prestigious “Women Who Mean Business” award, and Women in Technology’s “Entrepreneur Leadership” award.

McCabe is well known for conceiving the interagency “Acquisition of the Future” (AOF) initiative in 2013 that created and publicly launched the “Acquisition of the Future Transformation Guide” and profoundly altered the federal dialogue. The effort now includes federal agency pilot projects and an online collaboration site hosted and supported by the American Council for Technology-Industry Advisory Council (ACT-IAC) as part of their Acquisition Community of Interest.

McCabe continues her involvement as an Executive Sponsor for the “Acquisition of the Future” initiative hosted by ACT-IAC and is a member of the organization’s Executive Advisory Council. She also serves as a SAGE with the Partnership for Public Service, a director with the Procurement Round Table, and a member of the board of directors for the National Symphony Orchestra.
