Steve Niezgoda, formerly a senior vice president at KeyW, has been named chief operations officer of Cornerstone Defense in a move that takes effect on June 24.

He has worked with multiple public and private sector customers during his three-decade professional career and helped them address mission challenges with the use of technology, Cornerstone said Tuesday.

Niezgoda previously held various leadership positions at Sotera Defense Solutions, which KeyW acquired in 2017 through a $235M cash transaction. KeyW recently merged with construction and technical professional services contractor Jacobs Engineering Group (NYSE: JEC).

He penned academic articles on technical and forensic science matters and was a recipient of the FBI Director’s Award for Science and Technology.
