Leidos’ Roger Krone Relays Concern Over Impact of Senior-Level Vacancies at DoD

Roger Krone

TYSONS CORNER, VA, Aug. 17, 2017 — Roger Krone, CEO of Leidos (NYSE: LDOS) and an inductee into Executive Mosaic’s Wash100 for 2017, has said at an earnings call that he sees potential delays in contract awards and programs due to the Trump administration’s current pace of hiring for top Defense Department positions, ExecutiveBiz reported Monday.

“The still-high number of unfilled leadership appointments and the approaching government physical year-end continue to serve as headwinds,” Krone told analysts, according to a Reuters report published Saturday.

The report said DoD has 42 unfilled senior-level positions, 29 of which are still without an identified nominee.
