Thirty-year national security market veteran Ronald C. Jones has joined Vistronix as chief strategy officer and will serve as vice chairman of the mid-tier national security solutions and services provider’s board of directors.
Deepak Hathiramani, Vistronix Chairman and CEO, said Jones will be responsible for “architecting and leading” Vistronix’s corporate growth strategy as the contractor looks to leverage his previous experience handling those responsibilities at other national security sector firms.
