CenturyLink’s David Young: Culture Change Over Tech a Part of Agency EIS Transition

David Young

TYSONS CORNER, VA, July 30, 2018 — David Young, senior vice president of strategic government at CenturyLink (NYSE: CTL), has indicated that a change in culture is essentially part of federal agencies’ preparation for the shift from the General Services Administration‘s Networx contract to the Enterprise Infrastructure Solutions vehicle, ExecutiveBiz reported July 18.

Young, a 2018 Wash100 awardee, said at an event that the move to EIS will require a new understanding of technology and how it quickly adapts, rather than the transition being merely about a contract change, Federal Times reported July 17.

“Really what we have to do is get in a new culture, a new rhythm around how we embrace technology [and] how we use technology, and it’s not through contract change anymore,” Young noted during the FedInsider event.
