Technology services provider World Wide Technology has hired former Army Chief Information Officer Robert Ferrell as vice president of federal strategy.
Ferrell will oversee the St. Louis-based company's efforts to help agencies navigate technology advancements, fast-emerging technologies and globalization trends that affect federal IT infrastructures. He joins WWT four months after his retirement from the Army following a 38-year career there, the company said Monday.
He served as the Army's CIO for four years and was responsible for the branch's almost $10 billion in IT investments, according to his official Army biography.
Ferrell also led work to set the strategic direction and objectives for the Army network, manage enterprise IT infrastructure, establish and enforce IT policies, and deliver IT capabilities for soldiers and other users.
WWT's contract portfolio includes vehicles such as NASA SEWP V, GSA Federal Supply Schedule, Federal Open Market Catalog, Army ITES-3H and the National Institutes of Health CIO-CS.
