Joe Jeter has been named senior vice president for federal technology at Maximus, where he will be responsible for guiding its technology strategy and method for government agencies.
In his new role, Jeter will leverage his experience in technology strategy development, process enhancement and operational execution, the Tysons, Virginia-based company said Wednesday.
“Joe has proven himself as one of the true leaders in the federal technology space, in particular through his unique ability to identify and adopt emerging technologies that can deliver value and mission acceleration,” said Teresa Weipert, general manager of federal services at Maximus and a 2022 Wash100 Award winner.
Early in his career, Jeter was a systems engineer at Verizon but more recently, he was with Unisys handling large-scale IT strategy and systems delivery operations.
As Jeter progressed through these roles, he developed a cyber security organization and international network of cyber operation centers to support application and broadband reliability, built the architecture for Armed Forces Radio and Television Network’s streaming services and created the first Software-as-a-Service platform to meet the Virginia Lottery’s business intelligence standards.
Weipert said that Maximus is focused on aiding federal agencies in developing and implementing large enterprise IT programs to strengthen service delivery, increase productivity and boost trust with the general public as the company moves into 2023.
Commenting on his appointment, Jeter said, “The Maximus team has set itself apart from competitors through an approach to modernization that focuses on best-in-class technology combined with an intimate knowledge of the challenges facing federal agencies.”
“It’s an approach that I believe in, as there’s unlimited potential for what federal agencies can accomplish through technology, particularly emerging technologies like artificial intelligence and machine learning,” he added.
