Former Unisys Federal President PV Puvvada recruited by Falls Church IT company
Falls Church-based federal contractor NetImpact Strategies Inc. has named former Unisys Federal President Venkatapathi “PV” Puvvada as its CEO, the company announced Tuesday.
Puvvada will succeed NetImpact founder Kavita Kalatur, who will remain chairperson, providing oversight and supporting NetImpact’s strategic initiatives.
“PV brings the experience, capabilities and relationships critical to our next era. I have known PV for over 10 years and have counted on him for sound advice as we continued to grow. This gave me the chance to not only follow his accomplishments, but also see firsthand his leadership style and core values, which are very in line with ours,” Kalatur said in a statement.
Puvvada has decades of operational and financial experience in both public and private sectors. As CEO of NetImpact, he will drive the company’s digital transformation strategy. NetImpact will work to deliver next generation technologies for accelerating customers’ modernization initiatives and improving their mission outcomes.
Puvvada led Unisys Federal as president from February 2015 through March 2020, when Unisys Federal was acquired by Science Applications International Corp (SAIC). At Unisys Federal, Puvvada supervised the company’s organic revenue growth and established its footprint as a top digital transformation company.
He has also served as a board member for the Arlington-based Professional Services Council (PSC) and the Fairfax-based American Council for Technology-Industry Advisory Council.
“I am very impressed with NetImpact’s digital transformation capabilities and the client-first operational model and unique people culture that established their track record,” Puvvada said in a statement.
