He worked for 20 years at Harris in positions such as president of the IT services and government communications systems businesses.

Winner joins MHVC after he has served as chief legal officer and general counsel of GardaWorld Federal Services.

He previously held division general counsel roles at Northrop Grumman (NYSE: NOC), ITT Corp. and Exelis, which Harris acquired in May 2015.
