Horacio Rozanski, successor to Ralph Shrader as CEO of Booz Allen Hamilton, plans to focus his efforts on helping the firm navigate the current budget environment and a potential expansion into Asia, the Washington Post reported Sunday.
Rozanski told Post reporter Amrita Jayakumar that the firm’s Vision 2020 strategy aims to leverage Booz Allen’s new technology and engineering offerings as its government client base faces challenges in funding and structure.
“We began reducing our cost base when we realized our clients would have to do more with less. That meant pushing a lot more decision-making to the edges, to the people dealing with clients everyday,” Rozanski said.
He described how Vision 2020 is transforming the company from a consulting firm serving government clients to a solution provider that also works with commercial clients globally.
Booz Allen’s expansion plans would depend on readiness and geopolitical situations, he said to the Post.
Rozanski, currently president and chief operating officer at Booz Allen, will take over as CEO on Jan. 1 after Shrader’s retirement.
Shrader led Booz Allen’s previous business strategy, Vision 2000, and saw the company through several challenges such as the split into commercial and government business units and the shift back to a public company, the report said.
