Mark Hogenmilller has been a vital member of Aeyon’s executive leadership team since 2014, with his first position as Vice President of Defense Programs. Earlier in his career, he assumed leadership roles at ICF International and KPMG and served as Supply Officer at the US Navy.

In 2021, Hogenmiller assumed the role of Chief Transformation Officer; he spearheads Aeyon’s multi-disciplinary team of data, business process, and automation specialists. His team is laser-focused on strategic client initiatives encompassing innovation, process improvement, and digital transformation.

Hogenmiller’s leadership also covers homeland security efforts. In a commentary published in August 2023, he highlighted the misconceptions about Centers of Excellence (CoEs) in relation to agency process automation. 

He underscored that while agencies, such as the Department of Homeland Security and General Services Administration, are establishing CoEs for enhanced workforce and automation processes, it doesn’t offset the human workforce. Rather, they better work as a supportive tool for humans as some CoE models might not be suitable for all work processes.

Homeland security remains a priority for federal agencies focused on defending civilians, federal interests, and the nation from all sorts of threats.
