Linda Murray, formerly strategic planning and marketing manager of Parsons’ federal business unit, has been named chief audit executive.
Murray will report to the audit committee of the company’s board of directors and succeed Brent Harvey, who will transition to the chief risk officer role, Parsons said Monday.
She will have administrative reporting responsibilities to the chief financial officer and will oversee the application of risk management processes, suggest corrective actions and identify gaps.
Chuck Harrington, Parsons chairman and CEO, said Murray’s data analytics expertise and experience across defense, intelligence, security, infrastructure and environmental sectors would contribute to the firm’s internal audit operations and execution of programs in support of clients’ mission requirements.
Murray has been with Parsons for 24 years and previously served as an operations manager/deputy division manager for the firm’s national security division. She has held leadership positions across business development, project management and operations.
