Hearing from Bruce McConnell about Bruce McConnell

with one comment

I mentioned late last night that Bruce McConnell has agreed to sell his companiesMcConnell International and Government Futures — to Clinton Rubin LLC, a management consulting firm in Pennsylvania.

Early this morning, I got this note from McConnell:

I am pleased to announce that my two firms, Government Futures and McConnell International, have been acquired by Clinton Rubin, LLC, a management consulting firm based near Philadelphia. As you will see, the combined company offers exciting new services and value to government-facing clients. I will continue to be involved as an adviser and consultant.

On a more personal note, I have come to believe that our planet is at a profound turning point. The challenges we face as human beings and as a nation create daunting yet wonderful opportunities to collaborate in new ways, if we open to them. I believe my best contribution is to continue to find common ground among diverse worldviews, and to be a catalyst where business, government, and technology collide and react to create a better world. I welcome your ideas and inspirations.

McConnell — even while he was at OMB — has been one of the people who looked at technology as a way of enabling organizations to accomplish their missions. And like me, he is fascinated by what Web 2.0 means for government. I hope he stays actively involved in those issues — and others.

And… congratulations.
