The move comes nearly two months after John Goodman, managing director of the defense and intelligence business, was named to lead the federal business on an interim basis after then-chief executive Kay Kapoor resigned to pursue other opportunities.

Moskovitz, currently growth and strategy lead for the health and public service operating group, will be responsible for setting strategic direction, positioning the business in the market, managing client relationships and developing talent.

“David Moskovitz has a depth of government experience, in both strategic and operational roles, ” said Stephen Rohleder, group chief executive for health and public service.

“David combines an understanding of the importance of providing exceptional client services with a strategic business background that is essential in today’s federal economic environment.”

Accenture said Moskovitz helped form the company’s U.S. federal strategy in his most recent position.

The 30-year government technology and transformation veteran has also previously led the company’s U.S. state and local government practice.

Before joining Accenture, he worked for 12 years for the City of New York, including service as a deputy commissioner of a 3, 000-person division responsible for managing the city’s government infrastructure.
