John Auerbach, formerly a director at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, has joined ICF (Nasdaq: ICFI) as senior vice president for the company’s federal health segment.
He will provide guidance to the ICF management team on health business opportunities in the federal government, the consulting and technology services provider said Monday.
“There is a real need for timely, accurate and action-oriented data to ensure health agencies can not only respond quickly, effectively and equitably to future health emergencies, but also tackle burgeoning public health challenges facing the nation today,” Auerbach noted.
Prior to this appointment, Auerbach led intergovernmental and strategic affairs at CDC in the director role and supported the agency’s pandemic response initiatives as chief equity officer.
He previously served as the public health commissioner for the Massachusetts Department of Public Health and president and CEO of the nonprofit Trust for America’s Health organization.
The American Public Health Association recognized Auerbach in 2017 for his contributions to the field.
