Werfel joined Boston Consulting Group as a director in the public sector practice where he will work with clients on a range of issues, including organizational and operational improvements.

Along with Werfel, another senior government official found a new job.
Horace Blackman left the Veterans Affairs Department to join Lockheed Martin after spending the last six years in the government.
Blackman served as a regional chief information officer and director of information technology support service for almost four years at VA. He now will be working in Lockheed Martin's Information Systems and Global Solutions (IS&GS) business as its new vice president of health and life sciences.
"Horace offers the perfect perspective to lead our efforts to engineer innovative and efficient healthcare solutions for our customers' important missions," said Stephanie Hill, vice president and general manager of Lockheed Martin's IS&GS civil business, in a release. "Our teams safeguard crucial healthcare and personal data; enable clinical research through genomics and data analytics; support claims processing and disability examinations for millions of veterans; and drive efficiency with intelligent application of information technologies."
Lockheed Martin's health and life services organization supports several agencies, including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, the Department of Health and Human Services, the Social Security Administration, the Food and Drug Administration and VA.
During his tenure at VA, Blackman led several efforts around improving how the agency deploys and manages environmentally friendly technology systems, and adopting mobile devices across VA.
