Former Obama administration health official jumps to KPMG

"David’s extensive experience in the administration and reform of social services including childcare, family programs, disability services and healthcare brings an extraordinary level of knowledge and expertise to the practice."

Hansell most recently served as acting assistant secretary and principal deputy assistant secretary for the Administration for Children and Families, which deals with federal programs like Head Start and Temporary Assistance for Needy Families. Before that, he worked for the New York State Office of Temporary and Disability Assistance as commissioner.

He has also served as the City of New York’s Human Resource Administration’s chief of staff.

“Governments across the globe are challenged as never before to meet the complex social support needs of their citizens in the most cost-effective manner,” Hansell said in the statement. “KPMG has long been a leader in this area, and I look forward to bringing my experience to bear to help expand KPMG’s relationships with government and corporate leaders across the social services domain.”
