Peraton Unveils Four Business Sectors in Reorganization; Stu Shea Quoted

Peraton has reorganized its operations into four business segments, created three new executive positions and added five new members to the company's executive leadership team.

The Herndon, Virginia-based company said Thursday it will serve the government sector through its space and intelligence; cyber mission; global defense and security; and civil and health businesses.

The realignment comes after Peraton's private equity owner Veritas Capital acquired the information technology and mission support business from Northrop Grumman (NYSE: NOC).

Roger Mason, formerly president of space, intelligence and cyber at Peraton, will oversee the company’s space and intelligence sector.

Tom Afferton, most recently vice president of defense and intelligence at Northrop Grumman (NYSE: NOC), will serve as president of the cyber mission sector focused on delivering information operations, cyber programs and technical platforms in support of defense, intelligence and civil markets.

John Coleman, formerly president of defense and homeland security at Peraton, will lead the company’s global defense and security sector.

Tarik Reyes, formerly VP of civil and health at Northrop, will oversee Peraton’s civil and health sector, which is focused on providing mission-specific tech platforms for citizen services agencies, military, state and local agencies and global health customers.

Eric Buice, formerly sector VP and general manager of Northrop’s information solutions and services division, has been named chief performance officer at Peraton. He will oversee the adoption of certification and quality standards across the company’s portfolio.

Chris Valentino, previously VP of information warfare and cyber survivability at Northrop, has been appointed chief strategy officer of Peraton. He will help operationalize the company’s strategy in partnership with the leadership team.

Laila Salguero, formerly VP of corporate responsibility at Peraton, has assumed the role of chief diversity, equity and inclusion officer. She will oversee the company’s ethics and compliance functions and help align its DE&I objectives with measurable outcomes.

Stu Shea, chairman, president and CEO of Peraton and an inductee into Executive Mosaic's Wash100 for 2021, said the appointments will be integral to the company's strategy for delivering national security technology platforms and services to government customers.
