GovCon Wire Stays at Forefront of April’s Executive Movements, Promotions

GCWLogoThe month of April saw a flurry of high-level executive appointments at the nation’s top government contracting firms and GovCon Wire led the way in covering new arrivals in leadership posts.

Government Contracting Wire, the full name of Executive Mosaic‘s real-time news site, covered announcements of CEO transitions, promotions to the very top of the largest GovCon companies and industry veterans moving to new places.

Paul Dillahay elevated to the president and CEO posts at Greenbelt, Md.-based ASRC Federal and Rockwell Collins announced Kelly Ortberg as the successor to Clay Jones as chief executive, effective in July.

GovCon Executive, EM’s resource for original executive profiles, then followed up on Dillahay’s promotion with a profile of his career and background that includes time at Lockheed Martin.

In another move up, GovCon Wire covered John Pranzatelli’s elevation to president at MBDA Inc., the U.S. arm of global missile conglomerate MBDA Group.

Gary Slack, former executive vice president and chief financial officer at QinetiQ North America, moved up to president and chief operating officer while keeping the interim CFO title.

Several iconic firms also saw new hires at the C-level, including the appointment of Robert Logan as chief information officer at Science Applications International Corp.

Logan will then move to Leidos, the national security and engineering-focused company that will separate into an independent company from SAIC.

Rich Martin took the CIO role at LGS Innovations, where he will also serve as technical and personnel leader and lead information technology-related activities.

GovCon also saw industry veterans take the reins of business groups, with QNA promoting two company veterans to the EVP ranks.

Andrew Rogers assumed the EVP role for the technology solutions group and Mark Hewitt added the chief strategy officer and EVP titles, elevating from senior VP of technology solutions.

Jeremy Wensinger, former chief operating officer of GTSI Corp., joined US Investigations Services as president of the global security and solutions division and reunited with Sterling Phillips, USIS’ chief executive and former leader of GTSI.

Rich Sorelle, a 16-year ITT Exelis veteran and former head of integrated electronic warfare systems, elevated to president of the electronic systems division.
