Mary Whitley Joins ICF International


Mary Whitley, a highly experienced executive from the federal sector, has joined ICF International as a senior vice president in health information and health technology services, including the management of ICF's health IT information services subsidiary Z-Tech. Her duties will include managing all aspects of that business arena, including strategic planning, business development, and operations.

Whitley has more than 20 years of experience with defense and civilian agency clients at all levels. Before joining ICF, she was the president of the security solutions division of a mid-sized government consulting and IT services firm, where she led a business unit focused on Web application development and operations, security management, and logical and physical access systems specific to healthcare. She also served as vice president for defense global infrastructure systems at a large IT integrator, where she provided IT services supporting health, security, logistics, and financial systems.

Whitley retired from the Senior Executive Service in 2004 as an assistant commissioner with the General Services Administration's (GSA) Federal Technology Service. With the federal government, Whitley worked in IT systems acquisition and program management for both the GSA and the Department of Defense (DoD). Her experience in both government and the private sector give her an appreciation for the challenges faced by federal leaders and an in-depth understanding of both public and commercial management paradigms, IT development requirements, and security management and architecture standards.

She holds a B.S. from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point and an M.S. in systems management from the University of Southern California. She is also a graduate of the Senior Executive Fellows program, John F. Kennedy School of Government, Harvard University.

Ellen Glover, ICF executive vice president for Technology and Management Solutions, commented “Mary's extensive experience in the federal IT sector will help us expand our offerings throughout government markets, with particular emphasis on addressing the health IT-related needs of DoD and Veterans Affairs.“

Whitley stated that “My leadership role with ICF in health information technology enables me to provide thought leadership and technical services value to the federal government.“ She continued, “It also allows me to interface directly with customers whose goals are to improve the health and well-being of U.S. citizens. I find supporting these customers both professionally and personally rewarding, and feel privileged to join the accomplished team of professionals at ICF.“
