Hello, Guest!
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 QinetiQ North America, Boeing, Engility Corp. and General Dynamics.
Duane Andrews, CEO at QinetiQ NA, has announced he will retire from his leading role.
The former Pentagon CIO and assistant defense secretary for C3I has been at the company since 2006 and has helped acquire 10 companies and grow QinetQ to more than 5,300 employees and $1.5 billion in annual revenue.
“It has been an honor to lead the talented men and women of QinetiQ North America through the formation and early evolution of the company,” Andrews said.
At Boeing, Jim Chilton was named the head of strategic missile and defense systems succeeding Greg Hyslop, who was appointed new VP and GM of research and technology.
Roger Krone, Boeing president of network and space systems, said Chilton brings management, customer and technology experience to his new role.

In a big move at Engility Corp., Timothy Knight will now lead the international development business.
The former head of international development,  Asif Shaikh, will move to the company’s strategic relations team and will focus on developing and maintaining relationships with Engility’s senior level customers and other government stakeholders.
In his new role, Knight will work with U.S. government partners to provide developing countries aid in areas of economic growth, developing and sustaining resources, stability operations, disaster response, governance and capacity building.
Lastly, at General Dynamics Gerard Demuro will retire as head of the information systems and technology group.
The 14-year veteran has led the group since 2003. All of her current responsibilities will go to company CEO Phoebe Novakovic until a replacement is found.
“Jerry DeMuro has made significant contributions to General Dynamics over the past 14 years,” Novakovic said.
“We wish him continued success in his future pursuits,” she added.
