TechAmerica CEO Philip Bond is leaving his post at the industry group to join a D.C.-based lobbying firm.
Bond will become a partner at Petrizzo Bond, Inc., currently called Petrizzo Strategic Group, on Nov. 1. Bond will also become the company's CEO and president.
Bond said he plans to represent companies in IT, health, life science, and other industries. "This kind of innovation is America's best hope for long-term growth," he said in a statement.
Bond helped oversee the organization of TechAmerica, which calls itself the largest technology industry advocacy group, in 2009. It was formed by combining AeA (formerly the American Electronics Association), the Cyber Security Industry Alliance, the Information Technology Association of America, and the Government Electronics & Information Technology Association.
Bond previously worked at Monster, the online career site, and as under secretary of the U.S. Department of Commerce for Technology.
