James Benton, interim chief information officer at PAE since August 2018, has been named permanent CIO of the Arlington, Va.-based government services contractor.

He said he looks forward to building up the company’s technology services to further advance the corporate business strategy.

Benton “has an extensive technology background in the federal market space, and broad inside experience with the federal government which makes him well-suited to provide IT strategies to shape our company for the future,” said John Heller, CEO of PAE and a 2019 Wash100 winner.
