McCann named to lead EDS government sales

EDS Corp. has chosen veteran employee Andy McCann to be vice president and geographic sales leader of its U.S. Government and Public Sector business.

McCann will be responsible for developing and expanding EDS' business with federal civilian agencies, the Defense Department, the intelligence community, state and local governments, and several nonprofit organizations that conduct business with the government. McCann will oversee a team of more than 150 sales and business development professionals.

He will focus on accelerating growth while providing thought leadership and the best information technology solutions to EDS government clients, according to a company news release. He will also be responsible for expanding EDS' capabilities through its Agility Alliance, small-business partnerships and strategic relationships with teaming partners.

Most recently, he led a major segment of EDS' state and local government health care business, with responsibility for a 14-state region and 1,000 employees.

McCann, a 20-year EDS employee, succeeds David Hadsell, who was promoted to vice president and geographic sales leader for EDS' commercial business and state and local government health care business.

EDS, of Plano, Texas, ranks No. 10 on Washington Technology's 2008 Top 100 list of the largest federal government prime contractors.
