Sr Manager, Research
Kathleen Sievers manages a team of research analysts focused on identifying, creating, and maintaining reports about federal contracting opportunities. Through these reports, GovWin IQ customers are able to make educated business decisions to help them build their federal pipeline. Additionally, Kathleen presents several webinars each year, often focused on the small business contracting community. She previously contributed articles for the Washington Post as well as Deltek's GovList.
Kathleen's first experience in the federal contracting industry was more than 25 years ago in business development for a federal contractor - first for an 8(a) environmental firm, then with a VAR/IT systems integrator. This experience fostered a "client's perspective" which she considers the foundation to providing a high quality, valuable product.
Since 2000, Kathleen has worked in the federal market research industry in a leadership role, building her expertise across all agencies and major industries. She joined Deltek through the acquisition of Centurion Research Solutions where she held the position of Senior Director of Research. At Centurion, she supervised a team of analysts, wrote market analysis reports and articles, and worked closely with the development team on new products and enhancements. Prior to Centurion, she spent 10 years at ePipeline, Inc. where she managed a team of researchers, created NAICS-based analysis reports, and was in charge of research-based customer service support.
Kathleen kicked off her career in research and analysis with her bachelor's degree in History from James Madison University.
