John Hynes, chief operating officer at TASC since September 2012, has been promoted to president and CEO at the Chantilly, Va.-based contractor.

The appointment is effective immediately and he succeeds David Langstaff, TASC said Wednesday.

“I am honored and excited to have the opportunity to lead TASC as president and chief executive officer,” Hynes said.

Hynes credited Langstaff with growing the company’s workforce and helping customers achieve their missions during his nearly two-and-a-half tenure as CEO.

He returned to the company where he started his civilian career to serve as senior vice president of the defense and civil group starting in 2011 after having previously worked at the company between 1990 and 2001.

For that SVP role, he led the company’s business with the departments of Defense and Homeland Security, as well as civilian agencies such as the Federal Aviation Administration and NASA.

He began his TASC career as an analyst and later was promoted to roles such as program director and director of a business unit focused on geospatial systems and advanced text processing.

In between his stints at TASC, he served as SVP and general manager of the mission support business unit at Science Applications International Corp. (NYSE: SAI) and also led ManTech International’s (NASDAQ: MANT) security and mission assurance organization as president.
