George Krivo, DynCorp CEO and a 2018 Wash100 recipient, told GovCon Wire that Kelton’s deep knowledge of the intelligence domain will help drive the firm’s strategic growth efforts in that area.

“Protecting intellectual property from a wide array of threats is something every business has to focus on these days. No one is more capable and experienced in this regard than Mark,” Krivo added.

Kelton’s federal career has included four overseas assignments and service as deputy director of the National Clandestine Service for Counterintelligence. He is a recipient of numerous awards such as the CIA Distinguished Career Intelligence Medal, Presidential Rank Award of Meritorious Senior Intelligence Officer and CIA Directorate of Operations Donovan Award.
