Jane Chappell, a former Raytheon executive, has been appointed CEO of Altamira Technologies. Her addition to Altamira’s executive team will continue to drive its expertise in space, missile defense, cyber domains and many other critical areas, the company said Friday.
“Jane’s executive leadership and lifelong commitment to the national security mission will strengthen Altamira’s execution of critical customer programs,” said Joe Wright, chairman of the Board at Altamira. “She has an incredible track record of success, and her proven abilities and deep appreciation of our customers’ unique needs make her a perfect match to leverage the incredible talents and capabilities that already exist at Altamira.
Chappell will become Altamira’s CEO following more than 36 years of experience with Raytheon. She most recently held the role of vice president of Raytheon’s Global Intelligence Solutions (GIS), which she was directly responsible for managing a significant portion of its multi-billion business.
Prior to her role in GIS, Chappell led Raytheon’s Intelligence, Information and Services (IIS) business and the efforts to develop customer-focused strategies, partnerships, and driving competitive growth for the business.
Her track record also includes winning large, strategic contracts with the most demanding intelligence agencies across both domestic and international markets, including the Department of Defense (DOD) and Department of Homeland Security (DHS).
Jane Chappell will succeed current CEO Ted Davies, who will be retiring from Altamira, and she will inherit a world-class executive staff determined to drive the company to the next level.
“I look forward to working with the Altamira team to deliver mission critical solutions to their current customers and to expand the company’s world class capabilities to new customers and programs,” said Chappell.
