He was appointed to assume the responsibilities of David Francis, who announced plans to retire at the end of this year, Maximus said Monday.
Martinez has over 25 years of experience as a legal officer in the intelligence and defense contracting sectors. He was senior associate general counsel for the intelligence community from 2002 to 2010, according to his LinkedIn profile.
He also became deputy general counsel at the Office of the Director of National Intelligence before transitioning to the then intelligence and space business of Raytheon, now RTX (NYSE: RTX), where he served in various roles for more than a decade.
Commenting on the appointment, Maximus President and CEO Bruce Caswell underscored Martinez’s legal and governance expertise.
“His steady leadership and deep commitment to moving people forward will further strengthen our leadership team and the impact Maximus has on the lives of millions of Americans,” added Caswell, a four-time Wash100 awardee.
