Frank Konkel | FCW | April 3, 2013

Former Department of Veterans Affairs CIO Roger Baker, who left the agency in March after four years of service, has taken his IT talents to the private sector.

On April 1, Baker stepped into the newly created position of chief strategy officer at Agilex, a Virginia-based provider of mobility, analytics and other technology solutions to the federal government. His hiring signals the six-year-old company's intent to build its brand from a modestly sized 500-person company into a $1 billion organization over the next decade, according to Agilex co-founder and Vice Chairman Jay Nussbaum.

"As one of the most respected and transformative CIOs in government history, Roger redefined technology's role in the federal sector," Nussbaum said. "He will build upon his numerous accomplishments while advancing Agilex' position as our clients' most trusted and valuable partner. With his appointment, it should be clear that we are fully committed to our clients' long-term and enduring success."
