Alumni On the Move 10/04/2017 - Donella Brockington '76
In its 14th year, the Washington Business Journal's "Women Who Mean Business" awards program has more than 350 alumna including some of the most powerful business people in Washington. Every year, the Washington Business Journal selects a new class to join the talented group. Alumna Donella Brockington, '76 is vice president of public sector transportation at Conduent Inc., was selected this year.

At D.C.’s Conduent, which spun off from former parent company Xerox Corp. earlier this year and reported revenue of more than $6 billion, Brockington wears a number of hats. The D.C. native helps coordinate the company’s many divisions, with a particular focus on local government work and transportation east of the Mississippi.

Conduent is involved in a variety of industries, collecting roughly half of all child support payments across the country, operating the E-Z Pass system for much of the Northeast corridor and more. Brockington has been with the company for nearly 30 years, including when it was Affiliated Computer Services, long before Xerox had laid eyes on it.

Congratulations on your achievement!
