Accomplished experts will help guide Citizant’s next phase of growth
CHANTILLY, VA, Feb. 19, 2014 — Citizant, a leading provider of IT management consulting and business transformation solutions to the U.S. government, has appointed four experienced industry leaders to its board of directors.
Citizant’s new board members are:
- Ann John
President – RAI, LLC
former President – SpecTal
- James Ballard
President – Global Services & Solutions, Inc.
former President – Perot Systems Government Services
- Peter Schulte
Managing Partner – CM Equity Partners
- Daniel Mendez
General Manager – Unwired Planet, Intellectual Property Division

Citizant expanded its board of directors after re-capitalizing the company at the end of 2012 and consolidating ownership under CEO Alba M. Alemán. The loan transaction was financed by Citizant’s existing bank, SunTrust Bank, and by CM Equity Partners, a private equity group that specializes in strategic investments in government contracting firms.
“Citizant is privileged to have such an accomplished team to provide us with strategic counsel and who believe strongly in Citizant’s growth potential,” said Alemán. “Collectively, they have all the wisdom and experience required to help us focus on the right investments and remove all obstacles to growth, as we strive to create value for our employees, customers, and shareholders.”
“Growing in today’s complex market environment requires extraordinary effort to differentiate your company from the competition,” said Ballard. “Customers no longer want to be satisfied – they expect to be delighted, and this is possible only through world-class products and services. Alba Alemán and her team at Citizant have made these critical principles the hallmark of their company culture and the foundation of their strategy for future growth. Their commitment to excellence positions them very well for continued growth and a strong leadership position in our industry.”
