The human capital news network published an article on David Mihelcic’s placement at Juniper Federal, and featured an analysis by Tim Ward and Deborah Page on the rising demand for Chief Technology Officers.

David Mihelcic is the former Chief Technology Officer at the Defense Information Systems Agency. While at DISA, he was responsible for all technology matters within the agency, including oversight of all developments and acquisitions supporting the $3 billion annual telecommunications and computing enterprise. At Juniper Federal, David will drive technological innovation and new product development for the firm’s federal customers and across the entire company. He will also provide counsel on the firm’s infrastructure modernization programs that focus on network security.

Tim Ward, who conducted the placement, is Principal of the Government Contracting practice; Principal Deborah Page is head of the Technology group.

As companies look for ways to differentiate themselves in the rapidly changing technology landscape, talented chief technology officers with deep expertise in cybersecurity, data analytics, and infrastructure modernization are in even greater demand, said Mr. Ward.

“CTOs wear both a business and a technical hat within organizations,” said Deborah Page, technology practice lead at McCormick Group. “They work technical challenges while also partnering with the business on strategic roadmap planning,” she said, adding that they are considered ‘big-picture thinkers’ by constantly evaluating how technology can be used to create new services and solutions.

Tim Ward specializes in placing Operations, Technology, and Business Development executives across the government services industry with a focus on Aerospace, Defense, National Security & Intelligence Community, Federal Civilian, and Research & Development. He has helped build The McCormick Group’s national Government Services Practice since 2000 by forging deep connections with industry experts and leading companies.

Deborah Page specializes in recruiting information technology, cyber security and risk management professionals within the federal market and works with both publicly and privately held technology companies and government contractors. She also specializes in the career transition of government technology executives into industry.
