Steve Schorer

Steve Schorer, former president of DynCorp International, has joined Alion Science and Technology as president and CEO.

Schorer will assume the posts Friday to succeed Bahman Atefi, who will transition to the role of vice chairman of the board of directors at the McLean, Virginia-based government services contractor, Alion Science said Wednesday.

Ramzi Musallam, CEO and managing partner of private equity investment firm Veritas Capital and an inductee into Executive Mosaic’s Wash100 for 2017, said Schorer brings to Alion three decades of experience overseeing companies in defense electronics, government services, aviation and aerospace markets.

Veritas Capital acquired Alion in July 2015.

Schorer is a member of the board of directors at Camber Corp., which was acquired by Huntington Ingalls Industries (NYSE: HII) in 2016, and a board member at the National Defense University.

He held several roles at DynCorp such as president of DynAviation and head of global platform support solutions business.

He spent more than five years at DRS Technologies, which now operates as Leonardo DRS, as president of the command, control, communications and intelligence business segment.

Schorer also worked at L3 Technologies (NYSE: LLL), then L-3 Communications, as president and general manager of the ocean systems division.
