Mark Walker Headshot

AUSTIN, February 15, 2018 – Mark Walker, nationally recognized as an innovator in the delivery of integrated tax systems, joins Sense Corp to continue his service to government agencies as a Senior Engagement Manager for the firm’s Public Sector division. As a leading provider of data and digital solutions, Sense Corp currently serves many of the largest state agencies from strategy to implementation as part of the public sector’s growing focus on data-driven digital transformation.

With over 25 years of taxation agency experience, Mark most recently served as the Deputy Tax Commissioner and the Chief Information Officer for the Ohio Department of Taxation since 2012.  During his tenure, he managed the strategic direction and day-day operations for the Information Services Division, supporting the department’s overall direction and alignment with State IT Enterprise initiatives. Mark also worked directly with the State CIO, serving on the IT Technology Board as the Line of Business Lead for Business and Industry.

While serving in the role of CIO, Mark oversaw strategic initiatives such as, the move of the Information Services Division’s infrastructure to managed services provided by the State Enterprise; a successful shift to Agile, delivering a large-scale tax system modernization; and the development and implementation of fraud and compliance data analytics initiatives. “These types of initiatives truly drive better business outcomes,” said Mark. “I couldn’t be happier to be working for a company that understands the importance of analytics and digital transformation in driving new efficiencies in government.”

With honors, such as the NASCIO State Technology Innovator Award, Walker brings fresh ideas and a depth of digital transformation experience to our team. In his new role at Sense Corp, he will provide key insights to our clients and guidance to our Public Sector delivery teams.

“Mark Walker brings a wealth of expertise in integrated tax systems, is well respected among his peers, and is one of the few people in the country to successfully deliver an extensive legacy modernization effort via an Agile delivery approach” said Jimmy Schatte, Senior Vice President of the Public Sector division at Sense Corp. “As a services firm, we promise excellence, and the easiest way to do that is through the quality of people we add to our team.  Mark is reflective of our firm’s standards of excellence.”
