At Parsons, Bodie most recently served as executive vice president and global business development manager of the government services group, positions he was promoted to in October 2012.
In that interview, he discussed his work to help Parsons integrate the SPARTA business after acquiring the former Cobham unit in late 2011 and Parsons’ efforts to grow its portfolio of systems engineering, information technology and technical services offerings.
“It’s true that there are a lot of folks who when we talk about cybersecurity, intelligence work or training and program management, they say, ‘Well, I thought Parsons was in the bridge-building or tunnel-building business, ‘” he said.
Before joining Parsons, Bodie served as president and lead executive of KBR’s (NYSE: KBR) North American government and defense business unit.
He is also a former special assistant to the Air Force secretary and has served as a senior fellow at the National Defense University’s Institute for National Strategic Studies, where he led research into national security institutions in Russia and other former republics of the Soviet Union.
