LGS Promotes Kevin Kelly To CEO; Ronald Iverson Retiring

Kevin Kelly

LGS Innovations, an independent subsidiary of Alcatel-Lucent (NYSE: ALU), has promoted Chief Operating Officer Kevin Kelly to CEO.

LGS said Kelly will succeed the retiring Ronald Iverson, who has served as the company’s CEO since its founding in 2007.

Kelly said the company will continue to pursue work in research and development and networking infrastructure to meet federal agencies’ communications requirements.

As COO, LGS said Kelly helped align Alcatel-Lucent’s products and LGS’ network integration portfolios with mission requirements.

He also leveraged both LGS’ research teams and Alcatel-Lucent’s $3 billion annual investment in research and development, according to LGS.

Kelly launched a mobility business unit, which provides wireless infrastructure such as on-campus and small cell solutions, tactical communications, device management, mobile security and managed services.

LGS is continuing work on the U.S. Army’s Infrastructure Modernization contract and helps customers build new networking systems, including design and architecture.

Before joining LGS, Kelly held senior positions at General Electric’s aerospace business, Martin Marietta, Lockheed Martin, Lucent Technologies and General Dynamics.

He also was a communications engineer in the federal government.
