Editor’s Note 6/6/13: GovCon Wire inadvertently published a draft version of this story that incorrectly indicated that Larry Prior had previously worked at CSC and misstated Alan Weakley’s role with the firm. This misleading copy was never meant to be published and we apologize for any confusion. The below story is the factual report.

Larry Prior, former chief operating officer at BAE Systems Inc., has joined Computer Sciences Corp. (NYSE: CSC) as vice president and general manager of the defense and intelligence group.

Prior first joined British defense contractor BAE’s U.S. subsidiary in July 2010 to help grow its cyber and intelligence business as executive vice president for the services sector.

He added the COO role in June 2012 and held both positions through the end of March of this year.

The former Marine Corps intelligence officer previously held the COO and president roles at ManTech International Corp. (NASDAQ: MANT).

Prior succeeds Alan Weakley, who was vice president of CSC’s defense group.

Prior joined ManTech from SAIC, where he elevated to the president and COO roles after stints as senior VP for the federal business and group president for intelligence, security and technology.

A former professional staff member on the House Intelligence Committee, Prior earned a graduate degree in security studies from Georgetown University’s Walsh School in Washington.
