Hello, Guest!
 At the intersection of the private and public sectors, fostering innovation can drive significant value for many stakeholders by increasing both profits and taxpayer returns.

In the CEO profile of the Spring issue of GovCon Exec magazine, Executive Mosaic sat down with Robin Lineberger of Deloitte Federal Government Services, who spoke about the power of cooperation of individuals from different backgrounds.
“It’s what I call extreme diversity,” Lineberger told GovCon Exec. “You need a diverse set of people in the room if you’re going to innovate.”
This is the most direct route to developing a “trust cloud” between government officials with knowledge of market needs and commercial executives with knowledge of the technology, he added.
Lineberger joined Deloitte in 2009 when it acquired his 24-year employer BearingPoint. Where there was opportunity, there was also potential for loss for BearingPoint’s 3,500 federal division employees.
“People could have been put out on the market in one of the worst economic times,” Lineberger remembers. “You shoulder that responsibility as a leader.”
Maneuvering to enable those employees the chance to work at Deloitte is his career’s water mark, “bar none,” said Lineberger, and since then, Deloitte Federal Government Services has added more than 2,000 additional employees.
