David Johnson, a former assistant secretary of state and National Security Council spokesman, has been appointed vice president of strategic development and Washington operations at stability services contractor Sterling Global Operations.

The retired U.S. ambassador will lead the company’s Washington regional office — which is based in Reston, Va. — and also oversee work for current customers and to develop new business pipelines, SGO said Wednesday.

He supported international anti-crime programs in more than 80 countries while at the State Department and also served as U.S.-Afghanistan coordinator.

“His depth of experience in diplomacy, intelligence and security issues, economic matters, global crisis management, and leadership is matched by few people in our country, ” said Alan Weakley, SGO president and chief operating officer.

Johnson has served on the company’s board of advisers since 2011.

His public service career also includes time as U.S. ambassador to the Organization for Security Cooperation in Europe and as charge d’ affaires at the U.S. embassy in London.
