Schafer Corp. has appointed Mark Andersson, most recently chief operating officer at Applied Signal Technology, to serve as president and COO.

Schafer said the appointment is effective Jan. 1, 2013.

Andersson helped lead Applied Signal through its $490 million sale to Raytheon (RTN), according to Schafer.

“His expertise and experience with companies at a similar stage of development within our industry will be invaluable as we continue to grow our company, ” said Michael Griffin, Schafer’s chairman and CEO. “My colleagues and I will welcome his contributions as we work to help our clients across the U.S. federal government solve highly complex and critical problems.”

“This is an important time in the history of Schafer Corporation as the need for its services has perhaps never been greater, ” Andersson said. “I am looking forward to helping my new colleagues meet the needs of our clients and grow our business well into the future.”

Prior to Applied Signal, Andersson held a 25-year career at Harris Corp. (NYSE: HRS) and held senior-level positions in government lines of business.
