Charles Mathis, executive vice president and chief financial officer of technology products distributor ScanSource, will join Science Applications International Corp. (NYSE: SAIC) to serve in the same dual roles starting Nov. 14.
SAIC said Monday Mathis will succeed interim CFO Maria Bishop, who will return to her full-time post as corporate controller.
Bishop assumed responsibility for the McLean, Virginia-based government services contractor’s financial operations on an acting basis after former EVP and finance chief John Hartley departed the company June 30.
“Charlie has broad global experience in the defense, technology, and financial sectors, ” SAIC CEO Tony Moraco said.
“We are pleased to welcome Charlie to our executive leadership team and know that his experience in those sectors, as well as his focus on strategic growth, will be a great fit for SAIC, ” Moraco added.
Mathis also previously held the roles of EVP and CFO at South Carolina-based Force Protection, a blast and ballistic-protected products manufacturing business that General Dynamics (NYSE: GD) purchased in late 2011.
Before Force Protection, he was the finance chief of Elbit Systems (Nasdaq: ESLT) subsidiary EFW.
