Matthew Cornelius, former senior advisor for cybersecurity and technology at the White House’s Office of Management and Budget (OMB), has joined ADI as its new Executive Director. In this role, he will work with the Board of Directors and Member companies to help drive ADI’s mission of enhancing technological innovation within federal agencies to shape the way commercial capabilities can drive how our government serves and protects Americans.
When announcing Cornelius, ADI Chairman John Wood said “Technological investments from commercial innovators have always supported the evolution and progress of government agencies, from the space race to every arms race in history. Today, it is the data race that will define 21st century leadership, and we’re grateful to have Matthew on our team working to move the U.S. government forward.”
Cornelius brings deep operational and policy expertise to ADI, having most recently overseen the appropriation and deployment of federal technology funds at OMB, as well as extensive domain expertise in IT modernization initiatives gained during posts at the U.S. Department of the Treasury and the General Services Administration. He succeeds Richard Beutel, CEO of Cyrrus Analytics, who remains a key member of the ADI team as a senior policy advisor. Together, they will help execute ADI’s strategic priorities and work with key policymakers to drive existing and emerging commercial technology into the public sector.
