Executive Mosaic’s weekly round-up of news is a can’t-miss, digestible snapshot of the GovCon industry covering the biggest executive moves, mergers & acquisitions and contracts straight from the pen of one of GovCon’s most respected facilitators and sources of breaking news, Jim Garrettson.
This week, the newsletter contained major executive moves at AT&T Government Solutions, Northrop Grumman and Rockwell Collins and news on the new name for the national security, health and engineering business when SAIC splits.
In the first executive appointment, Northrop Grumman promoted Walter Page III to vice president, associate general counsel and sector counsel for the aerospace systems sector.
He will report to Sheila Cheston who said he has accrued important experience during his more than 20 years serving the company.
The second major executive move in GovCon this week was the elevation of Colin Mahoney to executive vice president for international and service solutions at Rockwell Collins.
Mahoney currently serves as VP of sales, marketing and support for the commercial systems segment and has held several other leadership positions during his 26 years at the company.
Rockwell Collins President Kelly Ortberg said Mahoney brings a global perspective and business development experience to the new role.

The third piece of executive news was Kay Kapoor being named president of AT&T Government Services.
She previously served as CEO of Accenture Federal Services before leaving at the end of last year.
“I’m proud to join and lead AT&T’s federal business at this critical time,” Kapoor said.
“The federal government is going through a technological transformation, embracing mobile and cloud solutions while combating new cyber security threats to our nation’s infrastructure
In the last piece of the weekly newsletter, GovCon Wire explains how SAIC’s new national security, health and engineering business will take on the name “Leidos,” after SAIC splits into two companies in 2014.
The new IT and technical services company will retain the SAIC name and be led by Tony Moraco.
At Leidos, John Jumper will be chairman and chief executive and Stu Shea will be COO.
