He will be responsible for driving growth initiatives through business capture, program growth and strategic planning efforts in his new position, Parry Labs said Monday.
Parry Labs CEO John Parkes said Pehrson’s appointment comes as the company looks to deliver technological capabilities to programs across the Department of Defense and play a key role in modernization efforts to enable Joint All-Domain Command and Control and multidomain operations capabilities in key initiatives.
Pehrson most recently served as vice president of special programs at General Atomics Aeronautical Systems and oversaw the Predator XP and Quick Reaction Capability programs, among others. He also served as VP of strategic development and led business capture and strategy across the company’s portfolio of unmanned platforms.
He retired as a U.S. Air Force colonel in 2010 after 24 years of military service.
