Maximus hires new Federal Services general manager
Terry Weipert to succeed Thomas Romeo, who will retire this summer
Government services company Maximus Inc. has named IBM executive Teresa “Terry” Weipert as general manager of its U.S. Federal Services Segment, the Reston-based company announced this week.
Weipert will replace Thomas Romeo, who is staying through July to help with the transition before he retires and moves to the segment’s advisory board.
When Romeo started with Maximus in August 2011, his division brought in $80 million of revenue. During the last decade, the federal contracting division grew its annual revenue to $1.6 billion. Romeo oversaw the acquisition of General Dynamic Information Technology Inc.’s contract center business in 2018, and most recently the $430 million acquisition of McLean-based Attain LLC’s federal division.
Weipert comes to Maximus from IBM, where she led its Healthcare, Life Sciences and SLED Public Markets units, the company said. She has also worked for Accenture, Sutherland Global Services and Unisys Corp.
Maximus CEO Bruce Caswell said in the announcement that Weipert will help with the company’s long-term strategy to expand its value to federal customers with citizen services and technology capabilities.
Founded in 1975, Maximus has 34,000 employees worldwide and is a Medicaid enrollment administrator. In the last year, it worked on a variety of pandemic-response services.
“Since the COVID-19 pandemic began,” Caswell said in a statement, “Maximus has been at the forefront of helping with the response, ranging from testing support, contact tracing and vaccine distribution to helping the IRS carry out the CARES and now American Recovery Act.”
