Computer Sciences Corp. (NYSE: CSC) has named retired Navy Rear Adm. Kenneth W. Deutsch as a vice president and lead executive in its pursuit of the Navy’s multi billion-dollar next generation enterprise network contract.
Deutsch will lead CSC’s NGEN strategy, transition and execution and report directly to Alan Weakley, president of the company’s North American public sector defense group.
Deutsch joined CSC in 2009 as vice president and general manager for information dominance programs within the defense and intelligence group.
Deutsch spent 31 years with the U.S. Navy and was thoroughly involved in all aspects of naval command, control, communications and enterprise networks.
Deutsch was the commander of forces for flying combat missions in support of Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom.
“Ken is the key leader of CSC’s NGEN team, ” said Weakley. “His distinguished naval career provides invaluable experience and insight into the Department of the Navy’s enterprise network requirements, while his performance as the leader of CSC’s information dominance business has prepared him well for the task of providing secure, reliable and cost-efficient networks for the Navy and Marine Corps.”
