Bethesda, Maryland (PRWEB) October 18, 2012
Catapult Technology, Ltd., a leading federal government contractor that provides a wide array of information technology and management consulting services, announces that Fred Haggard has joined the company as Vice President, Technology and Management Solutions.
Haggard’s immediate priority is managing the transition of Kickstand, a federal management consulting firm that is integrating with Catapult. Bringing Kickstand under Catapult is one outcome of Catapult’s recent acquisition by DC Capital Partners, a Washington, DC-based investment firm.
On an interim basis, Haggard will also manage Catapult’s Proposals group, which responds to the Federal government’s Requests for Proposals. In this capacity, he will assume the role of GWAC (Governmentwide Acquisition Contracts) Manager.
Haggard comes to Catapult from Tatitlek Corporation, an Alaska Native Village Corporation, where he held the position of Director, Sales and Marketing.
Haggard originally joined Catapult in 2002 to help start the company’s management consulting practice. He managed successful projects for the Transportation Security Administration, U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, the Armed Forces Inaugural Committee and Federal Aviation Administration before becoming Vice President in 2006.
He has nearly 20 years of experience working with the federal government, primarily in the human capital and management domain. He has previously served as Deputy Chief of Staff at the Office of Personnel Management (OPM).
Prior to OPM, Haggard worked as a special assistant for the White House Liaison in the Office of the Secretary of Defense. In this role, he worked to fill all political appointments for the Office of the Secretary of Defense as well as the Departments of Army, Navy, and Air Force. He also served as a search manager in the Office of Presidential Personnel at the White House.
Haggard reports to David Lyons, Executive Vice President of Technology and Management Solutions and Chief Technology Officer of Catapult.
