Mr. Rossotti served from 1997 to 2002 as Commissioner of the Internal Revenue Service, the federal agency that serves 175 million taxpayers and employs 100,000 people. As a result of his leadership, the public’s rating of the IRS increased greatly and relationships of trust with Congress, tax professionals and business groups were restored, and the agency’s effectiveness turned around. In 1970, Mr. Rossotti co-founded American Management Systems, Inc. and until 1997 served at various times as President, Chief Executive Officer and Chairman. AMS grew through his tenure, becoming a major international business systems consulting and systems integration firm with revenues of more than $1 billion.

In addition to his business activities, Mr. Rossotti serves on the Boards of Capital Partners for Education and the Comptroller General’s Advisory Committee of the Government Accountability Office (GAO). In 2005, he served as a member of President Bush’s advisory panel on reform of the income tax.

Mr. Rossotti is the author of “Many Unhappy Returns” (Harvard Business School Press 2005), a book about his experience turning around the IRS.

Mr. Rossotti earned his A.B. in economics, magna cum laude, from Georgetown University and his M.B.A., with high distinction, from Harvard Business School.

In addition to his ongoing client work, one of his primary activities for the past several years has been working with Treasury, the IRS and others on efforts to secure and properly deploy the long-term funding that is essential for effective tax administration when it comes to both service and compliance.  He has worked closely with Commissioners Rossotti and Koskinen in these efforts.  Material on these efforts can be found at
