In her new role, Seaver will be responsible for strengthening client engagement and strategic direction for GDIT’s federal civilian agencies sector.
“Kristin is an accomplished executive with a wealth of experience in all aspects of government operations, technology and logistics,” Jylinda Johnson, GDIT vice president and general manager for government operations, said in a statement. “Her expertise will play a critical role in supporting our customers’ digital transformation goals and mission objectives.”
As chief retail and delivery officer at the postal service, Seaver led operations of more than 450,000 employees at more than 30,000 locations nationally, and was responsible for operations of a delivery fleet of more than 280,000 vehicles serving 160 million daily destinations. As CIO, Seaver led the service’s digital transformation to modernize technologies and also oversaw investment in and development and deployment of technologies to set up services that included Informed Delivery, which gives residential consumers a digital preview of mail.
