LinQuest said Tuesday that Faga brings to the board an extensive government and industry experience, having held leadership positions at the U.S. Air Force and Mitre.

He served as president and CEO of Mitre from May 2000 until his retirement in June 2006. Before taking the helm at the nonprofit corporation, he led the organization’s Center for Integrated Intelligence Systems.

His public sector career also included time as assistant secretary for space at the Air Force and as staff member on the House Intelligence Committee.
