CenturyLink's David Young Promoted to SVP of Strategic Government - top government contractors - best government contracting eventDavid Young, a 2018 Wash100 winner, has been promoted to senior vice president of CenturyLink's strategic government group, the Arlington, Va., division announced Wednesday.

Young's promotion furthers the division's integration efforts and demonstrates the importance of strategic government to the organization, the telecommunications firm added.

Previously, Young held the role of regional VP for strategic government. The group interfaces with federal agencies, educational institutions, regional and national public consortiums, the defense industrial base and systems integrators.

“My recent promotion is a great example of the importance CenturyLink places on the strategic government group,“ Young told ExecutiveBiz. “It also demonstrates the company's commitment to being a trusted partner of government agencies as we help them modernize their networks and IT.“

On Tuesday, Young and Ed Morche, CenturyLink's president of strategic enterprise and government markets, met with members of Congress to discuss extending the General Services Administration's 2020 deadline for federal agencies to transition to enterprise infrastructure services.

Young played a key role in CenturyLink's $34 billion acquisition of Level 3 Communications, which closed last November.

He has over 30 years' experience in the public sector.
