Mitre has announced a series of leadership changes within the McLean, Virginia-based nonprofit company’s public sector business.
Yosry Barsoum, formerly portfolio director responsible for work with the office of the defense secretary and the Defense Information Systems Agency, has been named vice president and director of the Homeland Security Systems Engineering and Development Institute, Mitre said Tuesday.
HSSEDI is a federally funded research and development center that Mitre runs for the Department of Homeland Security.
Gregg Leone, formerly head of the company’s international aviation portfolio, has been promoted to VP and director of the Center for Advanced Aviation System Development, an FFRDC the company operates for the Federal Aviation Administration.
Leone will oversee Mitre’s international and local civil aviation programs, business operations and transportation strategies in his new role.
Scott Kordella, formerly director of intelligence community national security space programs, has been appointed executive director for outer space systems.
Kordella will collaborate with national security, civil and commercial space stakeholders and implement Mitre’s technology and applied science resources to advance the development of outer space platforms.
The appointments came a month after Mitre named Katharyn White as senior VP and general manager of its public sector business.
