Reginald Brothers, formerly a principal at The Chertoff Group, has been appointed as executive vice president and chief technology officer of Peraton in a move slated to take effect Feb. 19.
Peraton said Tuesday Brothers will oversee the Herndon, Virginia-based contractor’s business development, mergers and acquisitions, strategic planning and technical functions.
“[Brothers] possesses a deep understanding of the mission and technology requirements of our DoD and homeland security customers,” said Peraton CEO Stu Shea.
“We will look to Reggie to further strengthen, differentiate, and align Peraton’s technology development, customer engagement, and M&A activities across the markets we serve,” Shea added.
Prior to Chertoff, Brothers served as undersecretary for science and technology at the Department of Homeland Security, where he managed DHS’ portfolio of basic and applied research, development, evaluation and testing programs.
He previously worked as deputy assistant secretary for research at the Defense Department for three years and held senior technology leadership positions at the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency and BAE Systems.
