Guidehouse (formerly) PwC Public Sector, has hired Rich Wilson as a director in its Washington, DC office. Wilson, a recently retired US Army Colonel, brings more than twenty years of experience across health information management and clinical informatics.

Rebranded as Guidehouse, PwC Public Sector was offloaded by the Big Four firm in May 2018 as the company sought to have a freer hand in pursuing government agency audits – where a whiff of conflict of interest could derail a bid. The consulting practice was snapped up by private equity firm Veritas Capital, which primarily invests in firms delivering tech-enabled solutions to government clients.

Guidehouse currently has 2,000 employees across 21 US locations, and delivers management and technology consulting services to primarily public sector clients. It competes with other government-specialist firms like Booz Allen, the public sector practices of Accenture, Deloitte, EY, and KPMG, and the Big Three strategy firms.

The company has made a high-level hire with the addition of clinical informaticist and health technology leader Rich Wilson, who joins the firm as a director.

Wilson brings more than two decades of expertise, during which time he led combat medical units, Army clinics and hospitals, and Army-wide biostatistical activity.

Wilson was previously chief of the solution delivery division at the Defense Health Agency, where he was responsible for delivering tech solutions and applications for US military medical facilities across the globe. Before that, he was chief information officer for Army Medicine and chief medical information officer in the US Army Office of the Surgeon General.

Wilson also served as director of patient admin systems and biostatistical activity at US Army Medical Command, and chief of patient administration at Madigan Army Medical Center. Earlier in his career, Wilson served as medical regulating officer in the 62nd Medical Brigade during Operation Iraqi Freedom.

Wilson holds an MS in biomedical informatics and an MS in health information management from the University of Pittsburgh, as well as a BA in political science from West Virginia University.

"We are proud and honored to have someone of Rich's caliber and influence join our passionate team," Scott McIntyre, CEO of Guidehouse, said. "Rich brings a wealth of government and business strategy experience to Guidehouse. His expertise will be critical as our practice continues to grow."

Wilson commented, “I'm humbled and thrilled to join Guidehouse at this exciting time. We are growing quickly while tackling critical challenges in the industry. I couldn't be more excited about the future of Guidehouse."
