Deborah Ricci, formerly chief financial officer of Constellis, has been appointed to the same role at PwC’s former public sector arm that New York-based private equity firm Veritas Capital acquired in May.
She brings to her position 25 years of finance, accounting, contracts, information technology and human resources management experience for domestic and international operations across defense, manufacturing and technology firms, the business said Tuesday.
“Deborah’s leadership and experience make her a tremendous strategic partner to our new business and to our leadership team as we rebrand and continue to grow,” said Scott McIntyre, CEO of the Veritas-owned PwC Public Sector and a 2018 Wash100 recipient.
Ricci moved to Constellis after the Reston, Va.-based risk management and operational support services contractor purchased in April 2017 Centerra Group, where she also served as CFO.
She also held CFO role at a Washington, D.C.-based counterterrorism firm and was a former fellow at the University of Pittsburgh.
PwC’s former public sector business runs as a standalone firm under Veritas and works to provide consulting services to federal, state and local government clients.
