Accenture Federal Services Hires Veteran Defense Industry Executive George Batsakis to Lead Its Defense and Intelligence Practice

Accenture (NYSE: ACN) today announced that George Batsakis, a defense
industry leader, has joined Accenture Federal Services to head its
defense and intelligence practice.

In his new role, Batsakis will be responsible for developing and
delivering innovative solutions for the Department of Defense, the
intelligence community, military health providers, the Department of
Veterans Affairs and other U.S. federal clients.

Batsakis brings more than 25 years of experience in government-related
systems development and lifecycle management to his new role. Through
his career, he has led the implementation of large-scale information
technology programs and managed diverse defense and national security
project portfolios, which guide his understanding of the
mission-critical needs for defense and intelligence clients.

“We welcome George to the Accenture Federal Services defense team, where
his significant experience will help us accelerate projects for the
Department of Defense and other clients across the federal government,”
said John Goodman, chief executive of Accenture Federal Services. “As
the DoD prepares to modernize its IT systems and rapidly deploy
innovative solutions that reduce costs and increase efficiency, George’s
expertise will help our clients find the right solutions for their most
complex challenges and meet the needs of servicemembers, veterans and
their families.”

Batsakis joins Accenture Federal Services from CSRA, where he was an
executive vice president. He spent more than seven years at CSRA,
including serving as chief growth officer, before its acquisition by
General Dynamics earlier this year. During this time, he led work in
next-generation technology practice areas, shared-service delivery
platforms, digital consulting practices and cross-sector teams to drive
growth strategy and business development initiatives.

Earlier in his career, Batsakis was the executive vice president for
SRA’s National Security Group, responsible for new business acquisition
and contract execution for defense, intelligence, homeland security and
law enforcement. He also led a defense operating unit at Northrop
Grumman. Batsakis began his career as a U.S. Army infantry officer and
held various command and staff positions in the U.S. Army National Guard.

“I’m excited to join the Accenture Federal Services team, as throughout
my career I’ve learned the value of bringing together diverse and
innovative teams to develop and implement new analytic and operational
approaches to solve clients’ toughest problems,” Batsakis said. “I look
forward to continuing the work to help the government take advantage of
new technologies and services that secure vital military and
intelligence networks and IT infrastructure, transform capabilities, and
drive short- and long-term operational improvements.”

Batsakis holds a bachelor’s degree in political science and government
from Hillsdale College in Michigan and a master’s degree in business
from John’s Hopkins University, with specialization in operations
research and systems analysis.
