A former chief of staff of the Florida Department of Children and Families has become a top executive for Pondera Solutions, a Google Enterprise partner.


Vivian Myrtetus is regional manager for the eastern United States, the company announced in a press release. It provides “fraud analytics for government agencies nationwide.”

She will be based in Miami, reporting to Pondera Solution’s COO Greg Loos. She will manage various clients within the Medicaid, SNAP, unemployment insurance, and revenue tax systems.

Pondera Solutions “combats fraud, waste, and abuse in large government assistance programs, including Medicaid, Welfare, and Unemployment Insurance, using Google’s state-of-the-art predictive modeling, data mining/matching, geospatial and search engine technologies to investigate and help prevent potential fraud before it occurs,” the press release said.

Most recently, she worked at SAS Institute, where she managed state and local government relations in Florida. While there, Myrtetus was the No. 1 revenue-producing representative for the company in state and local markets.

Before joining Florida Politics, journalist and attorney James Rosica was state government reporter for The Tampa Tribune. He attended journalism school in Washington, D.C., working at dailies and weekly papers in Philadelphia after graduation. Rosica joined the Tallahassee Democrat in 1997, later moving to the courts beat, where he reported on the 2000 presidential recount. In 2005, Rosica left journalism to attend law school in Philadelphia, afterwards working part time for a public-interest law firm. Returning to writing, he covered three legislative sessions in Tallahassee for The Associated Press, before joining the Tribune’s re-opened Tallahassee bureau in 2013. He can be reached at
