Darrell Williams, former director of the Defense Logistics Agency, has joined Leidos (NYSE: LDOS) as vice president of defense group logistics and he will be responsible for the company's portfolio of land, air, sea, cyberspace and space offerings in his new position.

The retired U.S. Army lieutenant general will also help plan, manage and implement the defense unit's logistics activities, the company said Thursday.
