Brad Mascho, co-founder of Columbus, Ohio-based artificial intelligence technology developer CrossChx, has been named chief AI officer at NCI.
NCI said Tuesday Mascho will oversee a new corporate division that will aim to advance the Reston, Virginia-based government technology and professional services contractor’s AI strategies and programs to help clients convert data into actionable intelligence.
NCI CEO Paul Dillahay said the creation of the CAIO role seeks to reflect the company’s commitment to innovation as NCI works to address the gap between national missions and commercial innovation.
“Brad is the ideal visionary to help our clients realize the transformational impact happening at the intersection of AI, machine learning and predictive analytics,” he added.
Mascho, who will continue to serve on CrossChx’s board of directors, spent four years as president and chief financial officer of the Ohio-based company.
Prior to CrossChx, he served as a vice president at Insured Retirement Institute and as a communications director and strategic adviser to several members of the House of Representatives.
Mascho also serves as a fractional chief operating officer and chief management officer at DayOne.
