GCOM Names Lisa Mascolo as New CEO

COLUMBIA, Md., Sept. 19, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- GCOM, a leading technology company that specializes in outcome-driven solutions for the public sector, announced today that board member Lisa Mascolo has been appointed CEO. Mascolo succeeds Kamal Bherwani, who will return to his seat on the board of directors.

Her appointment comes on the heels of GCOM’s merger with OnCore Consulting, a preeminent provider of technology modernization and digital transformation services for the public sector. Mascolo will focus on bringing the two teams together to drive even better outcomes for the clients they serve.

Mascolo is a proven C-Suite leader across technology, strategy, business development, change management, and operations. She is passionate about business results, leadership development, culture, and the workplace inclusion agenda. Mascolo most recently served as IBM’s US Public Service business unit leader, where she and her team drove three years of growth in sales, revenue, income, and employee engagement. Prior to IBM, she spent nearly 30 years at Accenture, where she pursued and captured some of the company’s largest and most important clients in the government sector.

Bherwani was appointed CEO of GCOM in 2019 after serving in leadership positions with global international technology enterprises across both the public and private sectors for nearly 30 years. He ushered in an era of transformational growth for the firm and led GCOM’s transition from a services company to a SaaS product and analytics firm.

“On behalf of the Board, I thank Kamal for his leadership and the pivotal role he’s played in GCOM’s growth over the past four years,” said Donna Morea, Chair of the GCOM Board of Directors. She added, “Lisa’s track record of delivering outcomes for federal, state, and local agencies, combined with her passion for building strong corporate cultures, make her the ideal fit to take GCOM and OnCore to the next level. I have no doubt that she will continue to drive growth and pursue our mission of helping governments create healthier, safer, and more prosperous communities.”

“By unifying the combined capabilities of the GCOM and OnCore teams, we will help even more customers deliver better outcomes for their constituencies,” said Mascolo. “I’m continuously impressed by our team members’ passion for our mission, and I’m looking forward to delivering on the promise of this union. My thanks to Kamal for his leadership of GCOM and to Lee Bennett for his leadership of OnCore. Because of them, the combined team has a very strong platform from which to launch.”
