Kathy Stack, CEO of KB Stack Consulting, spent over three decades in the federal government, including 27 years at the White House Office of Management and Budget. As OMB’s deputy associate director for education, income maintenance and labor from 2007 to 2013, she oversaw budget, policy, legislation, regulations and management issues for the Departments of Education and Labor and major human-services programs. From 2013 to 2015, she launched and led OMB's Evidence Team to strengthen federal agencies capacity to use evidence, evaluation, data and outcome-focused program designs.

After retiring from the federal government in 2015, Stack served for several years as vice president at the Laura and John Arnold Foundation, where she helped federal, state and local governments build capacity to use data and evidence to improve decision-making.
