Christopher Cage to Succeed James Reagan as Leidos CFO; Roger Krone Quoted

Christopher Cage, senior vice president and chief accounting officer at Leidos (NYSE: LDOS), will succeed the retiring James Reagan as the company’s chief financial officer on July 5.

Reagan, CFO of Leidos since 2015 and a four-time Wash100 Award recipient, will continue to serve as an adviser through the end of 2021, the company said Tuesday.

“As demonstrated by today’s strong, first quarter financial results and growth momentum, we are well positioned to deliver on our business commitments and believe Chris brings the right skills to help drive Leidos forward on our current path of value creation,” said Roger Krone, chairman and CEO of Leidos and a 2021 Wash100 Award winner.

“During his tenure, Jim helped accelerate Leidos’ course of growth, strengthened our capital structure and led us through a period of significant total shareholder return at Leidos. We are grateful that he will continue on as an advisor through the end of the year, and wish him all the best in his retirement,” Krone said of Reagan.

Cage has been with Leidos since 1999 and has held senior finance leadership roles including SVP and CFO of the health and engineering division, SVP of operations finance and director for financial planning and analysis. He is a certified public accountant and a graduate of the Harvard Business School Advanced Management Program.

Carly Kimball, assistant corporate controller, will replace Cage as SVP and chief accounting officer. She brings to the role over two decades of experience in business operations, accounting, financial reporting, auditing and acquisitions and integrations. She previously worked at CACI Products Co. as CFO and at EY’s aerospace and defense practice as senior manager.
