Founding FAC board members include:

  • Ed Meagher: former Deputy Chief Information Officer, Department of the Interior; former Deputy Assistant Secretary/Deputy CIO, Department of Veterans Affairs  
  • Tom Ragland: Senior Vice President for Homeland Security, CACI; brigadier general, U.S. Army National Guard (Ret.); former Operations Director for Homeland Security, Department of Homeland Security
  • Patrick Schambach: former CIO of the U.S. Secret Service; former Assistant Director and CIO, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms; former Undersecretary and CIO, Transportation Security Administration

"We are pleased to assemble an all-star team of federal experts as we work together to guide agencies on how to maximize their cloud infrastructure investments," said Stu Fleagle, Vice President, Carpathia Government Solutions. "These leaders bring a wealth of experience on the complex security and compliance challenges facing specific federal agencies, and their insight will be invaluable as we continue to customize Carpathia cloud solutions to meet these needs."   

Carpathia plans to bolster the FAC team with two additional public sector technology leaders in the coming months, to best address the rising demand for cloud computing solutions in the federal government.
