“The expertise that he amassed through various senior management positions in the Federal Government and then as a leader in the Government Services sector will prove a tremendous asset to our company, our team and our customers. Having Renny on our Board alongside Anne Altman will provide us exceptional guidance, as we continue to scale Gunnison,” said Gil Dussek, CEO at Gunnison.
Prior to joining the board, DiPentima served as CEO of SRA International, where he helped take SRA public and expanded the company’s revenue to $1.3B with a market capitalization of $1.75B.

He also was president and chief operating officer from November 2003 to January 2005 and senior vice president and president of the company’s consulting and systems integration division between January 2001 to November 2003.
From July 1997 to January 2001, DiPentima served as president of SRA’s government sector, where he supervised government business, projects and contracts. He was also vice president and chief information officer with the company between 1995 to 1997.
In addition, DiPentima held several management positions in the U.S. federal government, such as deputy commissioner for systems at the Social Security Administration, from May 1990 to June 1995.
DiPentima has served as Chairman of the Federal Information Technology Acquisition Improvement Team as part of the President’s National Performance Review initiatives.
