Capgemini Government Solutions LLC has a new president and chief executive officer, and she's vowing to double the unit's size over the next 12 months.

Val Lyons, who took the company's reins in March, said Capgemini's government group will concentrate on building its solutions offerings in five areas: health, finance, logistics, human resources and technical services consulting, such as enterprise architecture and knowledge management.

Capgemini Government Solutions, Vienna, Va., was established in August 2002 as a subsidiary of Capgemini, the global technology consultancy headquartered in Paris. Lyons declined to reveal the government group's annual revenue, but said it has 35 employees.

The government unit's strategy is to tap resources from its parent company's North American operations, based in New York, while partnering with companies established in the government IT market, Lyons said. By drawing on Capgemini's broader resources, the government group can bring commercial best practices to its customers, she said.

"Our strategy to penetrate this market was not to build a big corporation ... but to build marketing initiatives," Lyons said.

The company plans to team more often with larger IT companies. It already has worked with Northrop Grumman Corp. and Science Applications International Corp., for government contract wins in military health and the Army, respectively.

Before joining Capgemini, Lyons was an executive vice president at Identix Inc., a biometric technology company.

Her previous experience includes stints as president of Sytel Inc., an enterprise network services and e-business company, and 18 years at EDS Corp., where she was president of the government services unit, overseeing marketing, sales and delivery to civilian agencies in the federal government.
