A New Avenue of Expert Insight: The Former Government Executives Council

IBM benefits from the perspectives of multiple leaders who formerly served in senior positions at the Federal, State and local level. Given the breadth and depth of their experience, the Center has worked with Vice President for Eminence Nicole Gardner to establish a council of advisors who bring this insight: the Former Government Executives Council (FGEC).

Members of the FEGC offer innovative ideas to improve government based on their past and extensive experience as senior officials at the Federal, State, and local levels. They provide thought leadership that draws on lessons learned and effective practice developed during their careers in government.

The FEGC reflects a “voice of the government” perspective, and meets periodically to help expand content offered through the Center on key issues, challenges, and opportunities facing the public sector. Members of the FEGC are available as expert resources, speakers, or senior advisors.

A summary of the FEGC membership is below -- for more details about the background and expertise of each FEGC member, see http://www.businessofgovernment.org/content/former-government-executives-council.

Please contact any one of our team to explore how the FEGC can help with improving effectiveness and efficiency across the public sector.
