Paul Lawrence, former public sector vice president of Kaiser Associates, has been appointed to serve as the Department of Veterans Affairs‘ undersecretary for benefits, effective today.

He holds decades of accounting experience, having held leadership roles at several companies, including Ernst & Young, Accenture, MITREPwC and IBM, VA said Monday.

Lawrence also formerly served with the U.S. Army as a captain and is a graduate of the Army Airborne School.
