Mitre Corp. has appointed Gary Gagnon senior vice president and chief security officer in a series of executive moves, the company announced Wednesday.
In the newly created CSO post, he will direct corporate security and develop the company’s cybersecurity strategy.
He will also implement cyber work program activities across the company’s federally-funded research and development centers.
The company also announced that Lillian Zarrelli Ryals will serve as vice president and deputy general manager of the Center for Advanced Aviation System Development.
That center is a federally-funded R&D center MITRE operates for the Federal Aviation Administration.
The company said she will continue to serve as corporate lead for the FAA’s Next Generation Air Transportation System.
She will also manage strategic planning, work program oversight and sponsor and stakeholder engagement.
Karen Quinn-Quintin was named vice president and chief human resources officer, succeeding Lisa Bender who recently retired from the company.
Raymond Haller, senior vice president, has been named general manager of the Center for Integrated Intelligence Systems, one of two operating centers within the National Security Engineering Center and the FFRDC.
He will also serve as deputy director of the NSEC and manage the company’s research and development, integration activities and advanced intelligence and information systems.
Richard Byrne, senior vice president and general manager of MITRE’s command and control center, was appointed deputy director of the NSEC.
MITRE said Byrne will work with the military’s joint forces while managing the company’s command and control strategy.
The company said the appointments follow the retirement of 38-year company veteran Robert Nesbit, who most recently served as senior vice president and general manager of the company’s center for integrated intelligence systems.
CEO Alfred Grasso said Nesbit helped to shape the company’s work with intelligence customers.
