He has served on MITRE’s board since 2001 and became vice chairman in 2006, MITRE said Wednesday.

“Sen. Robb has brought a wealth of knowledge in national security to MITRE’s board, ” MITRE President and CEO Alfred Grasso said.

Robb served as a senator from 1989 to 2001 and held memberships on the intelligence, armed services and foreign relations committees.
