Washington, DC: Michael Drescher, a Business Development Executive with TCG, has graduated from the American Council for Technology and Industry Advisory Council (ACT-IAC) Partners Program. The highly competitive Program pairs government and industry professionals in a series of courses that foster collaboration and problem-solving around government’s IT acquisition and program management challenges. Partners gain a greater understanding of government and industry leadership roles and responsibilities, and are prepared to take executive leadership at their respective agencies and companies.
Michael began the program in February of this year, and spent ten months working with other government and industry professionals to tackle wide-ranging topics from government technology procurement, leadership challenges, the Federal IT budget, and how to bring new and innovative technologies and ideas that benefit taxpayers into government. With this graduation, Michael is now a full-fledged member of the ACT-IAC Fellows community.
“The Partners Program brings government and industry executives together in a forum that allows for the free exchange of ideas in ways that the traditional vendor/customer dynamic makes difficult,” said Michael. “I value greatly the new perspectives I’ve learned related to the challenges of government technology procurement, and the personal and professional relationships I’ve gained as a result of the Program.”
Michael joined TCG in early 2016 and currently manages a $15 million program at the U.S. International Trade Commission, as well as projects at the National Institutes of Health Clinical Center, Securities and Exchange Commission, and Institute of Museum and Library Services. He is an accomplished Federal program manager, operations executive, strategic business advisor, and organizational performance expert. He has successfully managed over $500 million in federal contracts and $100 million in private sector contracts focused on project and program management, systems implementation, software development, web applications, data governance, and reorganization efforts. Michael has been involved with ACT-IAC for over five years and currently serves as the Shared Services Community of Interest Programs Chair.
