Brillient Corp. has embarked on a new two-year growth plan to further pursue digital transformation opportunities with federal agencies along with initiatives arising out of the CARES Act stimulus.
That plan called “Brillient 21” also includes a leadership team realignment. Reston, Virginia-based Brillient said Thursday that its founder and executive chairman Sukumar Iyer will step back in as CEO while continuing to chair the board of directors.
Iyer succeeds the semi-retiring chief executive Paul Strasser, who has started his own strategy consulting firm to work with other companies on growth in the government market.
Richard Jacik has been named chief digital officer and will drive Brillient’s transformation offerings in addition to his role as health business leader.
Jackie Marsteller will continue to lead the company's national security and civilian sectors. RJ Kolton remains chief growth officer, while Chief Financial Officer Jill McFarlane takes on other duties involving business operations in addition to the CFO role.
The Brillient 21 plan intends to build on the company’s success in pursuing full-and-open contracts with customers including five Cabinet departments: Agriculture, Defense, Energy, Homeland Security and Treasury.
