Wendy Masiello, former director of the Defense Contract Management Agency and a retired U.S. Air Force lieutenant general, has joined the board of directors at KBR (NYSE: KBR).
KBR said Thursday Masiello will serve on the board’s audit and environment, health, safety, security and social responsibility committees.
The 36-year Air Force veteran led DCMA from May 2014 until her retirement in May 2017.
“We believe [Masiello’s] strong government experience will be extremely valuable in light of the expansion of KBR’s government services business,”said Loren Carroll, KBR chairman of the board.
Masiello, an inductee into Executive Mosaic‘s Wash100 for 2016, served as a deputy assistant secretary for contracting at the Air Force’s office of the assistant secretary for acquisition before she joined DCMA.
She also offered advice on acquisition and incentive strategies for key Air Force procurement efforts.
Her military career includes time as program executive officer for combat and mission support at the office of the service branch’s assistant secretary for acquisition; commander of the 95th Air Base Wing at Edwards Air Force Base in California; and principal assistant for contracting forces in Iraq and Afghanistan.
