John Zangardi, formerly president of Redhorse, has transitioned to the role of CEO as part of the company’s growth-focused organizational changes supported by a minority investment from Blue Delta Capital Partners.
Redhorse said Monday the private equity firm’s recent investment also backs the appointment of a chief financial officer and the establishment of a board of directors.
“I am excited for this tremendous opportunity to collaborate across the portfolio of Blue Delta companies. This investment will accelerate our mission to deliver data analytics and AI-based solutions to our national security and federal customers,” Zangardi told GovCon Wire.
Bryan Pruden, vice president of finance and accounting at Redhorse, will now serve as CFO while David Inmon, founder and former CEO of the company, will chair the board, whose members are Zangardi; Renny DiPentima, a member of Blue Delta’s advisory board and former president and CEO of SRA International; and Chris Torti, a general partner at the venture capital firm.
Zangardi’s career includes time working at Leidos‘ (NYSE: LDOS) civil group as senior vice president of business initiatives and strategic partnerships and at the Department of Homeland Security as chief information officer. He also held other government positions such as acting CIO at the Department of Defense.
