Stu Shea — chairman, president and CEO at Peraton and a 2021 Wash100 winner — has offered a glimpse into the nine business sectors that will arise out of the Peraton-Perspecta (NYSE: PRSP) merger slated to close in a few weeks.

Shea said Peraton and Perspecta “will continue to operate as two separate companies until the transaction closes in a few weeks” and that other leadership appointments will be announced in future communications.
“Our integration management office and joint integration team, comprised of senior members of Peraton and Perspecta, continues to make tremendous progress in the planning around critical systems, facilities and business processes that will be imperative to our business readiness post-close,” he added.
In late January, Peraton’s private equity owner Veritas Capital struck an all-cash deal worth $7.1 billion for Perspecta. On Feb. 1, Veritas closed its acquisition of Northrop’s IT and mission support business, which now operates under the Peraton name.
