McLean, Virginia-based Xcelerate Solutions has expanded its leadership team with the appointment of Tim Conway as a member of the board, Anne-Marie Evans as chief financial officer and Michael Heller as vice president of human resources.
Conway, a two-time Wash100 awardee, will bring to Xcelerate’s board his federal contracting industry experience and will help shape the company’s strategic direction and promote innovation, the defense and national security company said Thursday.
He previously served as an executive VP and president of public sector business at NTT Data Services. He held senior leadership roles at ACS and IBM (NYSE: IBM) and served as a program manager at Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT).
