Angela Colter, formerly director of strategy at the General Services Administration‘s 18F unit, has been promoted to serve as executive director of the digital services group on an acting basis, Nextgov reported Monday.
She joined 18F in February 2016 as an innovation specialist and helped build a platform that could help GSA manage professional development programs, as well as an open-source component library and style guide intended for government designers and developers.
Her professional career has also included positions at Electronic Ink, UserWorks, Comcast Interactive Media and University of Baltimore.
FCW reported Monday Colter succeeds Rebecca Piazza, who has led 18F over the past eight months and left the federal government to pursue a new job in the private sector.
Victor Udoewa, 18F’s senior strategist, will replace Colter as the group’s strategy director.
