Tiffanny Gates, federal business president at Novetta since January 2016, will elevate to the CEO role at the McLean, Va.-based analytics technology company in March 2017.
Novetta said Feb. 10 that Gates will succeed Peter LaMontagne, who will leave the company in a full-time capacity.
Global investment firm Carlyle Group purchased Novetta in August 2015 from previous owner Arlington Capital Partners in a deal funded through equity capital from the $13 billion Carlyle Partners VI fund.
“Tiffanny taking over as CEO has been in the works since we were fortunate enough to recruit her to Novetta more than a year ago,” said LaMontagne.
Gates joined Novetta as federal president from Raytheon‘s (NYSE: RTN) Blackbird Technologies subsidiary, where she served as vice president of cyber strategies.
Her leadership roles at Blackbird and prior to that at ManTech International (Nasdaq: MANT) included positions focused on business development as well as cyber and cloud-based technologies.
She joined ManTech in 2008 as a senior vice president upon its acquisition of Emerging Technologies Group, which she founded in 2000 as a cyber forensics and information services provider.
