ARLINGTON, Va., Jan. 22, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- ASI Government (ASI), the premier provider of federal "Big A" acquisition thought leadership and support, announced today that Dr. Timothy W. Cooke will serve as the firm's next President and CEO, effective Feb. 15. Outgoing President and CEO Kimberly "Kymm" McCabe will continue as an active member on the company's Board of Directors.
Dr. Cooke currently serves as President of ASI's Consulting Division. In that capacity, he leverages his experience in government, professional services and business leadership to create value in the acquisition life-cycle, helping clients achieve their missions within the current budget environment. His team's mission is to help government organizations decide what to buy, how to buy it and how to get the value they were promised.
Dr. Cooke said, "I'm thrilled to take on this new role within ASI, and I am enormously excited about the company's future. From our top-notch services and solutions to our remarkable workforce, I am eager to embrace the opportunities ahead and help ASI create even more value for our clients, our people and our company."
He added, "At the same time, I am grateful for all that we accomplished under Kymm's direction: transforming our company, outperforming the market, growing our unparalleled team and leading the charge on 'Acquisition of the Future.' She has inspired us with her visionary leadership, grace under pressure and sense of calm and humor, and her impact on our community will be felt for many years to come."
Ms. McCabe said, "I was brought onboard to transform ASI into a world-class professional services firm, and during the last four amazing years, we have done just that. We accomplished more than we imagined in 2011. And while the company looks very different than it did then, at its heart, it is the same: the premier and trusted provider of Acquisition solutions, with the best team, services and products in the industry."
Ms. McCabe added, "As ASI moves into its next phase, I am delighted that Tim will take the helm of the organization. He is a trusted leader, strategic thinker and industry veteran, and I know he will do a tremendous job. I look forward to working with him and the Executive Team from my seat on ASI's Board."
Anne Reed, Chair of ASI's Board of Directors, said, "ASI is an exceptional firm, with incredible people at every level. Kymm McCabe recognized that from the start. While she is recognized for successfully transforming ASI, one of her greatest accomplishments is having fostered an enduring spirit of innovation. On behalf of ASI's Board, I'd like to thank Kymm for all she has done to grow, steer and strengthen the company. Also on behalf of the Board, I'd like to congratulate Tim Cooke as he steps into his next role. We have every confidence in him and look forward to this next chapter in the company's future."
