The American Council for Technology – Industry Advisory Council announced on Thursday that David M. Wennergren has been named chief executive officer, effective May 13th.
Ellen Glover, former IAC Chair, led a search committee to recommend the best candidate for the position. Wennergren was selected from a large pool of candidates after an extremely rigorous search process. He will succeed Kenneth Allen, who served as CEO for 14 years.
“I am sorry to see Ken Allen leave as he has been invaluable to advancing the partnership values of ACT-IAC, said Renee Wynn, ACT executive committee president. “I’m excited to welcome Dave Wennergren to the position and look forward to working closely with him to advance the Council’s values and principles for the benefit of public service.”
Wennergren served as the managing director of Deloitte Consulting since July 2017. He serves as the executive vice president and chief operating officer of the Professional Services Council, and is a fellow of the National Academy of Public Administration and a CIO-SAGE at the Partnership for Public Service.
