John holds a bachelor’s degree from the University of Michigan and a Juris Doctorate degree from the University of Virginia School of Law.
Kate Abrey will be responsible for shaping and leading the development of new emerging market opportunities and the delivery of solutions to new customers.

After leading SE Solutions for over seven years as President and COO, and participating in the Federal market space for over 40 years, John Wayne will begin the transition towards his desire to spend more time with his family and his passions. John will continue to support the new team for the foreseeable future – assisting in the transition of the business. “We sincerely thank John for his service, his leadership, and his dedication to SE Solutions and to our industry,” continued Scheffel. “We wish him the very best as he plans for a new chapter with his family.”
“With the pace of our industry moving faster than ever, our outlook is filled with renewed energy and conviction,” said Matt Warren, the new Co-COO, Emerging Markets. “I’d like to thank John Wayne for his leadership and support through this transition.
