"I am honored to have these five individuals join me on Avue’s Government Advisory Board," Hobbs said. "The purpose of the Board is to advise Avue’s senior leadership on the Company’s mission and strategic direction. The collective experience of this group across the spectrum of federal government finance, IT, procurement, regulation, and benefits makes it extraordinarily well qualified to fulfill that role.
"In addition, each of them is a proven leader and distinguished member of their profession. Each is an individual of character and integrity whose career reflects their willingness to act as a change agent in helping organizations excel."
As CIO at the Treasury Department, Hobbs was responsible for the acquisition and management of information resources and for providing broad leadership in planning, budgeting, acquiring, and managing Treasury’s IT resources. Prior to joining Treasury, Hobbs served seven years as the Deputy Chief Information Officer of the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). During his federal tenure, Hobbs co-chaired the Federal CIO Council’s Workforce Committee whose goal was to improve the recruitment, retention and skills of the federal government’s IT workforce.
