Alan Chvotkin, Executive VP and Counsel, Professional Services Council

Those include the Vision Forecast and Conference, the CIO survey and the American Technology Awards. Alan Chvotkin is executive vice president and counsel at the Professional Services Council. He joined Tom Temin on the Federal Drive with details on the acquisition.
