Stan Soloway, President & CEO, Celero Strategies, LLC

Stan Soloway is President & CEO of Celero Strategies, LLC, a full-service strategic consultancy focused on the federal market. Celero Strategies is Soloway’s latest step 
in a career during which he has become widely regarded as one of the nation’s leading experts on the federal market, the factors and dynamics that drive it and 
how to translate that expertise into meaningful strategies and action. With Celero, Soloway’s goal is to combine two core passions: helping good companies bring innovative solutions to government and helping government significantly improve its performance and delivery of service. Stan also serves as a member of the Defense 
Business Board, and is a Fellow of both the National Academy of Pubic Administration (where he also serves on the Board of Directors) and of the National Contract Management Association.

Prior to founding Celero Strategies in January 2016, Stan served for 15 years as the President & CEO of the Professional Services Council, the largest and most 
influential national association of government technology and professional services firms. While at PSC, Soloway was the industry’s leading voice, policy strategist and 
resource for both government and the private sector. He regularly testified before Congress, was a prolific writer, appeared often on radio and television; and was 
routinely sought out by both corporate and government organizations to discuss current market trends, dynamics and strategies. He has also been a contributing 
author for books published by Cambridge University, Harvard Law School and the University of Pennsylvania, and in 2021 co-authored “Other Transactions at 60: Hitting Their Stride or Hitting the Wall?” which was published by the IBM Center for the Business of Government.

Stan was the recipient of the 2016 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) Government Technology Leadership Award and was named the IT Industry Executive of the Year in 
2013 by Government Computer News, He has also been cited as one of the 100 most influential business leaders in Washington (Washington Business Journal) and one of the 100 most influential figures in national defense (Defense News and Gannett). He is a four-time winner of the Federal 100 Award for his leadership in federal information technology and is a principal at the Partnership for Public Service where he serves as a Senior Advisor to Government Executives (SAGE).

During the second half of the Clinton Administration, Stan served as the Deputy Undersecretary of Defense and was responsible for wide-ranging reforms to defense acquisition and technology policy and practices, and broader department-wide re-engineering. In recognition of his leadership in the department, Stan was awarded both the Secretary of Defense Medal for Exceptional Public Service and the Secretary of Defense Medal for Distinguished Public Service.


As passionate believer in the importance and value of public service, Stan also served from 2007 to 2013 as a Senate-confirmed member of the Board of Directors 
of the Corporation for National and Community Service (now known simply as AmeriCorps). Earlier in his career he was a public policy and public affairs consultant 
for nearly 20 years. He also co-produced the acclaimed PBS television series “Great Confrontations at the Oxford Union.” He is a graduate of Denison University, where he was elected to the National Men’s Leadership, National Journalism, and National Political Science honorary societies.
