Keene “has an exceptional track-record leading the company’s operations, building great teams, and growing business, most recently as the lead architect of the highly-successful Engility merger and integration,” Moraco said.

Moraco, who has been CEO since 2013 and fellow 2019 Wash100 winner, added that Keene will help advance SAIC’s mission-focused Ingenuity 2025 strategy and lead efforts to deliver value to clients, shareholders and employees.
