John Hynes

John Hynes, a more than 28-year GovCon industry veteran, has joined Ashburn, Va.-based technology services contractor Applied Insight as CEO.

He succeeds Gavin Long, who will chair the AI board, the company said Thursday.

AI is one of the two companies that investment firm The Acacia Group formed in 2018 following its acquisition of Intelligent Decisions.

Long, also managing partner at The Acacia Group, said Hynes’ strategic vision, operational maturity, mission understanding and experience in mergers and acquisitions would help advance AI’s growth initiatives.

Hynes will also serve on the AI board and oversee the executive team to drive growth strategies, build up the company’s business development approach and develop novel platforms to address clients’ requirements.

Hynes said he intends to expand the adoption of the company’s Accountable Innovation strategy to help more federal clients align technical platforms with their missions.

Prior to AI, Hynes worked as chief operating officer at Engility, which was acquired by Science Applications International Corp. (NYSE: SAIC).

He held senior leadership roles at TASC, SAIC and ManTech International (Nasdaq: MANT).

The former naval aviator serves on the Intelligence and National Security Alliance’s advisory board and as a member of the Capital Area Food Bank’s board.
