The Information Technology Association of America (ITAA) took the next step today in their merger with the Government Electronics and Information Technology Association (GEIA) by announcing that current ITAA Chairman Hank Steininger will serve as the chairman of the new board. Steininger, currently a managing partner at Grant Thornton, also will lead a five-member executive committee.

Current GEIA Chairman Gene Glazar, vice president for business development at BAE, and Gordon Coburn, CFO of Cognizant Technology Solutions, will serve as co-chairmen. Former GEIA Chairman Randy Lucas, a program executive at Verizon Business and former ITAA Chairman Dave Sanders, chief operating officer at Avotus, will round out the executive committee.

The new 28-member ITAA board of directors will be composed equally of ITAA and GEIA member companies. The merger will bring 400 companies focusing on public policy and IT together under the ITAA banner. The merger has been discussed since last fall and is expected to be completed April 1.
