Joe Klimavicz, formerly chief information officer of the Department of Justice, has joined KPMG as a managing director, FedScoop reported Thursday.

He will advise federal agencies on cybersecurity and cloud migration in his new role at KPMG.

“Joe is a respected federal IT leader, and we’re very glad to have him on the KPMG team as we help agencies transform their IT operations,” Chris Marston, principal and leader of the accounting firm’s government advisory practice, said in a statement. “Our clients will benefit from the deep, hands-on experience he has acquired over many years in government IT — particularly in the area of cybersecurity and cloud adoption.”

Klimavicz stepped down from his role at DOJ and retired from federal service at the end of February. The more than 40-year government veteran also served as DOJ’s chief data officer. He previously worked as CIO at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and deputy CIO at the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency.
