Scoop: Hoffman to Replace Hellman at ITI

Robert Hoffman is joining the Information Technology Industry Council as senior vice president of government relations, replacing Ralph Hellmann, who announced in November that he was leaving the tech trade group

Hoffman joins ITI from the IT service firm Cognizant Technology Solutions, where he is vice president of global public policy. Prior to opening Cognizant's Washington office in 2009, Hoffman spent eight years managing Oracle's national policy and political advocacy. He also served as the co-chair of Compete America, a high-skilled immigration reform coalition. 

"While at Oracle and Cognizant, I had a front row seat to witness ITI's establishment as the industry's leading voice in Washington. This is an extraordinary time to be a part of the ITI team because we are at a critical policy crossroads for our industry," Hoffman told the Alley.

In a statement sent to the Alley, ITI president Dean Garfield said, "Robert is a proven champion for the technology sector. He understands the challenges ahead and the opportunities for bipartisan cooperation to drive technology innovation and job creation. His vast experience in the public and private sectors will prove invaluable to ITI and our member companies.  We are very fortunate to have Robert join our team."
