After transforming information technology operations at the Veterans Affairs Department, Roger Baker has moved back to the private sector to continue serving federal customers from the outside.
Baker has been named chief strategy officer for Virginia-based Agilex Technologies, a professional IT services firm known for its work in developing IT projects in smaller, faster increments, or agile development. In this newly created position, Baker will assist federal customers with IT modernization efforts and lowering IT operations and will also play a key role in expanding the company’s federal reach. At VA, Agilex has been a major player in advancing the department’s mobile initiatives through several contract awards, including one to develop mobile applications for VA clinicians.
After a four-year tenure, Baker stepped down last month as VA’s CIO and assistant secretary for information and technology. Prior to that, Baker held executive roles at several companies, including General Dynamics Information Technology and CACI International.
