Mark Kelton, a retired senior executive of the CIA, has joined DynCorp International as senior vice president of national security solutions at the McLean, Va.-based government services contractor.
He brings 34 years of intelligence operations, international security, insider threat detection, counterintelligence and crisis management experience to his new position, DynCorp said Tuesday.
“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.
He most recently served asÂ director at MEK & Associates and also works as an adjunct assistant professor for the security studies program at Georgetown University’s Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service, as well as at the Daniel Morgan Graduate School for National Security.
