Phillips, a six-time Wash100 Award recipient, will lead ManTech’s post-acquisition board of directors as chairman, the company said Monday.

Tait is a U.S. Navy veteran who joined ManTech in 2018 after an almost 25-year career at Accenture, where he previously served as senior managing director of defense business.
