William Brown on Harris Naming James Morris President and Vishal Agrawal Healthcare Lead in Integrated Net Solutions
Harris made two executive moves in its integrated network solutions group this week, naming Army intell vet James Morris group president and 15-year healthcare vet Vishal Agrawal president of healthcare solutions.
CEO William Brown said the company tapped Morris in part for his experience leading global technology operations and his strategic development background.
The two executives have both previously led operations at McKinsey and Co., where Agrawal helped grow the public sector and military healthcare practice as a partner.
Agrawal’s unit, which develops IT infrastructure, analytics and imaging systems, is joined by Harris CapRock Communications and IT services within integrated network solutions.
Michael Griffin on Mark Andersson Becoming President and COO at Schafer Corp.
Mark Andersson has been appointed president and COO at Schafer Corp., where the 25-year Harris vet will look to grow Schafer’s business combating national security threats.
Andersson previously held the COO role at Applied Signal Technology and guided that firm through its $490 million sale to Raytheon.
Michael Griffin, Schafer chairman and CEO, said Andersson has experience driving growth at companies at development stages similar to Schafer’s in the contracting industry.
Ret. Col. Chris Sorenson on Being Named Triple Canopy COO
Chris Sorenson will become the new COO at Triple Canopy after recently retiring from the U.S. Army after 28 years of service.
“I see my move to Triple Canopy as a continuation of service,” Sorenson said. “I can’t think of a better way to bridge a long military career than to contribute to our nation in a leadership role at a veteran-owned and veteran-friendly company.”
The retired colonel most recently served as commander of the Military Information Support Operations Command and was the ground force commander for the first raid against the Taliban post-9/11.
