Larry Prior, executive vice president and general manager of Computer Sciences Corp.‘s (NYSE: CSC) North American public sector business, has been selected to hold president and CEO titles for the company’s planned U.S. public sector spinoff.

Prior’s appointment will require approval by the future Computer Sciences Government Services board of directors, CSC said Monday.

The company also filed a Form 10 registration statement with the Securities and Exchange Commission on its plan to spin off the U.S. public sector business nearly two months after it announced the board’s approval of that unit’s planned separation from CSC’s commercial and foreign governments business.

“[The] filing is an important step in the separation of CSC into two pure-play companies, ” said CSC CEO Mike Lawrie.

Prior, a member of Executive Mosaic’s Wash100 list for 2015, holds more than 30 years of experience on defense, security, intelligence and technology programs in both the public and private sectors.

He has served as vice president and general manager of the CSC North American public sector arm’s defense and intelligence group and prior to that as EVP of the service sectors and chief operating officer at BAE Systems‘ U.S. subsidiary.

Prior is also a veteran of Science Applications International Corp. (NYSE: SAIC) and ManTech International (Nasdaq: MANT).
