Unisys Corp. announced Monday that Mark Forman has been appointed the vice president of Digital Government for Unisys Federal. Forman will work with Unisys U.S. federal government clients to improve their mission outcomes through innovations related to cloud computing and other digital transformation approaches.

“Bringing Mark into this new position gives Unisys Federal the opportunity to build on the momentum and rapid growth the company has experienced with clients in the U.S. federal government,” said Venkatapathi “PV” Puvvada, president of Unisys Federal and 2019 Wash100 Award recipient.

“His expertise in the use of innovative technology to achieve the government’s objectives – combined with his knowledge of policy governing the use of IT in government – will help ensure our solutions to meet the specific needs of federal IT leaders and their agencies,” Puvvada added.

Previously, Forman served as the global head of Unisys Public Sector, where his leadership in combining digital solutions expertise with industry knowledge helped Unisys to acquire major new non-U.S. federal government clients.

Forman has been recognized for transforming and modernizing U.S. federal government IT operations. Leveraging this experience, he will work with Unisys Federal business unit leaders to reach out to federal executive leaders to advise them on ways to achieve their objectives through innovative technology related to the cloud, data analytics, data center optimization and cybersecurity.

In addition, Forman also will work closely with technology leaders at Unisys Federal to ensure the solutions the company offers to U.S. federal government clients appropriately align with policy guidance issued by the White House and Congress.

Forman has established a strong reputation for understanding how to apply technology and management best practices at government agencies. He has served in senior national and global leadership positions at Engility, KPMG and IBM. Forman also co-founded and led his own cloud computing and IT consulting companies. Forman is a member of multiple boards and advisory councils.

The American Council for Technology and Industry Advisory Council honored him with the prestigious Janice K. Mendenhall Spirit of Leadership Award for his contributions to the federal IT community in 2013. He also was inducted into the GCN Hall of Fame in 2006 and received the Eagle Award from Federal Computer Week for exceptional government service in 2002.
