CGI Federal quietly replaces leader

After two years on the job, Donna Ryan has stepped down as president of CGI Federal.

A company spokeswoman said Ryan's departure was a planned retirement.

The company has made no official announcement of the change, but Ryan has been replaced by retired Army Lt. Gen. James Peake.

Ryan took over the position of president of CGI Federal in October 2011 after George Schindler became president of U.S. and Canada operations.

Peake joined CGI in 2010. During the George W. Bush administration, he served as secretary of Veterans Affairs. His military service included a four-year stint as the Army’s surgeon general.

Before becoming president of CGI Federal, he was a senior vice president with the company.

Hmmm. Why haven't we seen HHS, CMS, etc. quietly or noisily replacing managers? Showing that the concept of accountability in the Government exists is the first step in showing that Government can work.
