Jennifer Chronis, who has more than 25 years of experience supporting defense and federal civilian agency clients, will officially join Verizon (NYSE: VZ) in early August to serve as head of the company's federal business.

She succeeds Michael Maiorana, a previous Wash100 awardee who will stay with the business through the end of the year, Verizon said Tuesday.

“Jennifer has spent more than two decades serving Federal civilian and defense clients and serving in the military, giving her the unusual ability to experience technology-driven business transformation from the provider and customer perspectives,” said Andres Irlando, senior vice president and president of the company's public sector and Verizon Connect.

Irlando added Chronis has shown her ability to help federal customers achieve their missions, build up relationships with partners and clients and enhance business performance and the company is thrilled to have her as part of the public sector team.

Chronis most recently served as general manager for the Department of Defense market at Amazon Web Services. She held leadership positions at IBM (NYSE: IBM) and served in the U.S. Army for over two decades.
