A ‘Good Scout’ Makes a Great Leader: Wood Parker

Wood Parker, former president of the Northrop Grumman IT sector’s Federal Enterprise Solutions business unit, was chosen in 2005 as the Technology Good Scout Award recipient from the National Capital Area Council of the Boy Scouts of America.

Parker joined the private sector after two decades of service in the U.S. Navy. His industry career started in 1990 at Coopers & Lybrand Consulting, where he led that firm’s government practice through the 1998 merger with Price Waterhouse to form the global professional services company now known as PwC.

From 2001 to 2008, Parker led several Northrop businesses including three years as head of the defense contractor’s former advisory services division, TASC. He then held the president and CEO titles at TASC when it became an independent company upon its 2009 acquisition by an investor group. After he retired from his dual role, Parker transitioned to the vice chairman post in 2011.

Engility acquired TASC in February 2015 and Parker joined Serco’s U.S. board of directors later that year.

GovCon Wire featured Wood Parker as part of Executive Mosaic media group’s coverage of Good Scouts who were honored for their contributions to the Greater Washington tech sector and demonstration of scouting values.

The BSA National Capital Area Council’s 2022 luncheon event will be held Nov. 2 at the Tysons Corner Marriott hotel in Virginia, with LMI President and CEO Doug Wagoner serving as Good Scout honoree during the ceremony.
