John Wilson, formerly technical director of MITRE‘s information technology technical center, has been named vice president of programs and technology of the nonprofit company’s national security engineering center.
He most recently led MITRE’s effort to apply information technology across national security and civilian customer programs, MITRE said Monday.
“We look forward to John applying his leadership skills and extensive experience in software engineering, embedded systems, and information technologies to advance NSEC’s program divisions and technical centers, ” said Alfred Grasso, MITRE president and CEO.
The 30-plus-year MITRE veteran previously served as technical director of the Net-Centric division of NSEC and held responsibility in the communications, network and IT infrastructure support for the U.S. Air Force and Defense Department.
MITRE operates the NSEC as a research and development center for DoD.
