“I can think of no better person to lead Peraton’s human resources strategy – including such critical needs as talent acquisition, talent development, and employee engagement – than Laurie,” said Peraton CEO Stu Shea.

“She knows our business and understands our people,” Stu added.

Prior to Harris, Foglesong also held senior HR leadership roles at technology companies such as Engineering Management & Integration, Ariel Research, Booz Allen Hamilton (NYSE: BAH) and Advanced Switching Communications.

Peraton emerged from Harris’ former government information technology services business that private equity firm Veritas Capital acquired in April.
