“We are excited to bring Josh onboard at CollabraLink,” said Rahul Pandhi, President of CollabraLink. “Josh understands how to drive impact for public sector clients, period.  His time at 18F has him well versed in how to successfully modernize Federal IT in a cost effective, agile and intuitive fashion. This skillset will serve the CollabraLink customer base well and helps to further solidify CollabraLink’s position as a go-to partner for Federal Agencies in this arena.”

What drew Bailes to CollabraLink was the company’s culture in providing federal clients with simple and efficient solutions to increase efficiencies.
