Booz Allen Hamilton has hired Frank DiGammarino, a former executive from Amazon Web Services and White House senior adviser, as an executive vice president.
DiGammarino will work to help Booz Allen advance its innovation and digital transformation strategies the firm envision as supporting federal agencies. Booz Allen said Wednesday his efforts will support federal clients such as Recreation.gov and industry partner Dell in their joint District Defend offering that helps manage mobile devices in secure environments.
He spent four years at AWS in roles such as director of state and local government in its public sector division, as well as head of global expansion.
