Guidehouse names new innovation lead

Guidehouse appoints a new chief innovation officer that was part of the leadership team at Dovel Technologies before its acquisition by the former.

Guidehouse has appointed a new chief innovation officer in Dr. Rod Fontecilla, who joined the management and technology consulting firm through its acquisition of Dovel Technologies.

Formerly both chief innovation officer and data scientist at Dovel, Fontecilla will join Guidehouse’s growth organization and oversee the company’s strategic innovation framework.

His responsibilities will include leading efforts to Dovel’s capabilities with those of Guidehouse to further expand that innovation agenda into new areas of interest to the business, Guidehouse said Tuesday.
