John Keenan, formerly group executive for global information technology infrastructure and operations at Newmont Mining, has been named chief information officer of United Launch Alliance as part of the company’s executive reorganization.
Tory Bruno, president and CEO of ULA, said Tuesday the move aims to help the Boeing (NYSE: BA)-Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) joint venture align its product line and further build its launch services work.
John Neary, formerly director of ethics and business conduct for Boeing’s defense, space and security business segment, will oversee fiduciary and fiscal operations as ULA’s chief financial officer.
ULA also named Liane George as vice president of human resources and Charlie Krisch as VP of standard services.
Laura Maginnis will assume the role of VP of custom services, while Cindy Nafus will take over as VP of quality, safety and mission success.
The company also appointed Mark Peller as program manager for major development and George Sowers as VP of advanced programs.
Other members of the new executive leadership team are Brett Tobey, VP of engineering; Gary Wentz, VP of human launch services; and Robbie Sabathier as VP of Washington operations and communications.
The executive realignment comes as the company further develops the Vulcan rocket and prepares to launch the Boeing-built CST-100 Starliner spacecraft aboard the Atlas V rocket.
