Horacio Rozanski started with Booz Allen in 1991 as a summer intern, and a year later, joined full time as a strategy consultant in the firm’s commercial business. He rose through the ranks and served as chief personnel officer, chief strategy and talent officer, chief operating officer, and president before becoming chief executive officer in 2015. He is also a member of the firm’s Board of Directors.
During his more than 30-year Booz Allen career, Horacio has played an integral role in the firm’s major strategic initiatives, including the successful 2010 initial public offering. He has led the transformation of Booz Allen from a traditional consulting firm to the premier technology integrator and innovator for the U.S. federal government. This effort positioned Booz Allen at the center of our nation’s most critical missions and laid the foundation for the firm’s sustained growth.
Today, Horacio sets the strategic direction for the firm’s next era, which is encapsulated in the VoLT growth strategy. VoLT enables the firm to accelerate and stay ahead by focusing on the pillars of velocity, leadership, and technology. In the face of rapid technological change and complex global challenges, Booz Allen is innovating with speed and agility to help our nation respond and thrive.
