Bob Fortna

Bob Fortna, president of Fortinet’s (Nasdaq: FTNT) federal business, has been elected to AFCEA International’s board of directors as vice chairman.

Fortna will assist the board chairman in overseeing AFCEA’s affairs and serve on the nonprofit organization’s budget and finance committee as vice chairman, AFCEA said Thursday.

The announcement of his appointment came a week after DeEtte Gray, president of U.S. operations at CACI International (NYSE: CACI) and a 2018 Wash100 recipient, was named chair of AFCEA’s board.

Bob Shea, AFCEA president and CEO, said Fortna has provided insight and helped improve the organization’s fiscal posture as a member of the audit panel.

“As a long-standing member of AFCEA, it’s an honor to join the leadership team and help foster communication among these groups on matters of national security,” said Fortna, who also serves on Fortinet Federal‘s board.

Fortna, a more than 15-year AFCEA member, has served as chairman of the organization’s audit panel and member of the executive committee and board.

He started his career at IBM’s (NYSE: IBM) federal division and previously held senior leadership roles at Juniper Networks (NYSE: JNPR), Avaya (NYSE: AVYA), Enterasys Networks, Nortel Networks and Government Industry Consulting.
