Mark Sopp, an inductee into Executive Mosaic‘s Wash100 list for 2015, plans to retire from Leidos Holdings (NYSE: LDOS) as chief financial officer later this year.

He will remain in service until the company finds a successor to the role and afterward will serve as adviser for the transition phase and other corporate matters, Leidos said Wednesday.

“I’m proud to have worked closely with Mark and thank him for all of the outstanding work he has done for Leidos, ” said Roger Krone, Leidos CEO and another Wash100 inductee.

“I look forward to continuing to work with him as he supports our efforts in his new advisory role, ” Krone added.

Sopp has been the company’s CFO since 2005 and in 2006 led Leidos’ initial public offering — both during the time when the company was known as Science Applications International Corp.

The 18-year financial industry veteran also assisted in the financial aspect of the separation of Leidos and the company now known as SAIC in 2013.
