TASC Inc. has promoted 12-year company veteran John Hynes, formerly senior vice president of the defense and civil group, to serve as chief operating officer and executive VP.
The company said the promotion is effective immediately.
Hynes said in a release the company is working to become more agile and responsive against a backdrop of unpredictable threats and tightening budgets.
President and CEO David Langstaff said Hynes brings insight and perspective from both his military and business experiences.
Hynes rejoined the company in 2011 to head the defense and civil group, which works with customers including the departments of Defense and Homeland Security; the Federal Aviation Administration and NASA.
He previously worked at TASC from 1990 to 2001, where he held leadership positions including program manager and director of a business unit for geospatial systems and text processing.
Before rejoining TASC, he served as SVP and general manager of SAIC’s (NYSE: SAI) mission support business unit and also as president of ManTech International‘s (NASDAQ: MANT) security and mission assurance unit.
Prior to joining the private sector, Hynes served eight years in the U.S. Navy as a naval aviator, an intelligence analyst and department head at the Naval Operational Intelligence Center.
