Parsons Consolidates Federal, Infrastructure Units Into Single Structure; Chuck Harrington Quoted

Parsons has merged into a single structure its infrastructure and federal business units to align the company’s end-to-end platforms with its client set and create joint research-and-development initiatives.

Chuck Harrington, Parsons chairman and CEO, said in a statement released Thursday said the company aims to increase organizational agility, collaboration and innovation to help clients address technological challenges with digital technology.
