Executive Mosaic’s Weekly News Round-Up
Al Pisani on TASC’s Appointment of Terry Roberts as an Intell & Cyber VP
After announcing a suite of executive moves last week, TASC has named Terry Roberts, former deputy director of Naval Intelligence, to a new VP of intelligence and cyber role in its intelligence group.
Roberts most recently led technical enablement for the Defense Department as executive director for interagency acquisition and cyber at the Carnegie Mellon Software Engineering Institute.
Al Pisani, SVP of the intelligence group, said “Terry brings a deep understanding of the intelligence mission and the systems engineering and integration discipline, honed over more than 30 years of serving the intelligence community.”
Roberts was honored with several recognitions during her career in government service, including the Office of the Secretary of Defense Medal for Exceptional Civilian Service.
Marcus Collier on General Dynamics Information Technology’s CMS Contract Win
General Dynamics Information Technology has won a potential $100 million task order from the U.S. Health and Human Services Department to support the Medicare Secondary Payer Program.
“Ensuring claims are paid correctly is a vital element in keeping the Medicare system functioning smoothly,” said Marcus Collier, SVP of GDIT’s health and civilian solutions division.
The company will enhance, maintain and consolidate more than 20 program applications, while also providing software development, hosting and production services for the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid services.
GDIT won the task order under the CMS enterprise system development contract, which was awarded in 2007.
Scott Donnelly on Textron’s Promotion of Ellen Lord to Systems Segment CEO
Ellen Lord, current SVP and GM of Textron‘s defense systems segment, will succeed the retiring Fred Strader as president and CEO of the company’s systems segment.
The company credited Strader with helping launch the firm’s Shadow tactical unmanned aerial system and helping capture the Navy‘s ship-to-shore connector opportunity in that role.
Lord will report to Scott Donnelly, chairman and CEO, who said “since taking over the leadership of TDS in January 2011, Ellen has effectively tackled the dynamics of an unpredictable defense industry and shifting customer demands.”
Lord joined the company in 1984 and moved to the systems segment in 1998 where she served as SVP and GM of Textron’s AAI business and VP of integration management.
