He held senior leadership roles at The Timken Co. (NYSE: TKR) and United Dominion Industries and previously served on the boards of US Ecology, Family Dollar Stores and Alpha Natural Resources.

Perspecta’s board approved a 20 percent increase in cash dividend for the quarter ended March 31. Shareholders of record as of June 5 will receive a quarterly cash dividend of $0.06 per share on July 16.

“We are committed to returning cash to shareholders as part of our balance capital allocation program, and the dividend is an important component of that plan. We still have ample flexibility to pay down debt and make disciplined investments for sustainable growth,” Curtis added.
