The IBM Center for The Business of Government is pleased to announce that John Kamensky will now serve as an Emeritus Fellow, working on government performance and reform issues. We are honored that John will continue to be affiliated with the Center.

John moves to Emeritus status after his tremendous and impactful career working in and with government, including the IBM Center for the past 20 years, where he has served as a Senior Fellow and an Associate Partner with IBM's Global Business Services.

Across four decades of public service, John has played a significant role in helping pioneer the federal government's performance and results orientation. He is passionate about helping transform government to be more results-oriented, performance-based, customer-driven, and collaborative in nature.  His work has influenced many government policies and practices, and his impact reaches across the globe.

Prior to joining the IBM Center, John served for eight years as deputy director of Vice President Gore's National Partnership for Reinventing Government. Before that, he worked at the Government Accountability Office where he played a key role in the development and passage of the Government Performance and Results Act.

Since joining the IBM Center, he has co-edited six books and writes and speaks extensively on performance management and government reform, including his most recent 2021 co-authored report with the IBM Center, Government Reform:  Lessons from the Past for Actions in the Future.  Current areas of expertise include transparency, collaboration, and citizen engagement.  He also comments regularly in the media and with government colleagues about management challenges and opportunities.

Mr. Kamensky is a fellow of the National Academy of Public Administration and received a Masters in Public Affairs from the Lyndon B. Johnson School of Public Affairs, in Austin, Texas.
