Mike Hettinger, TechAmerica's new senior vice president of the public sector, has been charged with ensuring federal contractors that the industry association is committed to the public sector for the long term. Some members are taking a wait-and-see approach before deciding whether or not to stay with the organization.
Mike Hettinger has spent more than 20 years in the federal sector and now comes over to the trade association from the Software & Information Industry Association. He worked on Capitol Hill and for government contractors.
The trade association offers more details about its claims against three former senior officials who left to join the IT Industrial Council. TechAmerica says the three officials downloaded a "truckload" of proprietary information about membership dues and other parts of the business, which will cause "irreparable injury" to the association.
The IT Industry Council asked the DC Superior Court to dismiss charges filed by TechAmerica against the trade organization and three employees. ITI's lawyer said TechAmerica's allegations lack evidence and do not meet the standards of law. TechAmerica pushes back against ITI's request for dismissal saying each of the allegations can be backed up by facts.
Shawn Osborne previously servied as president, CEO and director of Ulticom Inc., according to a TechAmerica release.
