She oversees PSC’s policy, education and advocacy efforts in support of the Department of Defense and Intelligence Community agencies.
Ayers most recently worked at the Department of the Navy, where she served as director of program analysis and business transformation for the deputy assistant secretary of the Navy for procurement, PSC said Thursday.
She spent a decade at Naval Sea Systems Command and led contracts and procurement efforts for the service’s surface combatant platforms within NAVSEA’s shipbuilding contracts division.
Before NAVSEA, she served as a senior private client associate at Bernstein Private Wealth Management in Seattle.
Ayers’ “deep experience leading defense procurement and acquisition efforts will strengthen PSC’s ability to achieve better policy outcomes for our industry and its government customers,” said David Berteau, president and CEO of PSC and a two-time Wash100 awardee.
