Shad Evans SVP of Finance Operations KBR

Shad Evans, senior vice president of finance operations at KBR (NYSE: KBR), will succeed outgoing Chief Accounting Officer Raymond Carney, Jr. on an interim basis, the Houston Business Journal reported Monday.

KBR said in a Securities and Exchange Commission filing that Carney will step down as VP and CAO by the end of this month or after the company files its third quarter Form 10-Q.

Evans joined the Houston-based government contractor in 2018 as chief financial officer for its technology solutions division and elevated to his current SVP position two months ago.

He previously oversaw financial and business operations at Leidos (NYSE: LDOS) in VP role and spent nearly six years at Science Applications International Corp. (NYSE: SAIC) in director posts with responsibility over economic development and tax matters.

His appointment comes after KBR implemented a reorganization initiative in August and completed acquisition of Centauri earlier this month.
