Effective immediately, TASC, Inc. promoted John P. Hynes Jr. to executive vice president and chief operating officer. Hynes will now drive operational effectiveness in support of rapidly evolving customer requirements to ensure their success and, in turn, the company’s growth.
“The time is right for TASC to make another refinement in our organizational structure,” said David Langstaff, president and chief executive officer of TASC. “With a laser focus on continuous improvement, we will be even better positioned to help our customers navigate their affordability challenges while fulfilling their mission of keeping our nation safe and secure. From both his military and business experience, John brings the insight and perspective that ensure we continue to deliver value that benefits our customers and, ultimately, taxpayers.”
Hynes began at TASC as an analyst and went on to hold leadership positions including program manager and director of a business unit focused on geospatial systems and text processing. He worked at TASC from 1990 to 2001, returning to the company in 2011 to become senior vice president of TASC’s Defense and Civil Group. Before rejoining, he was at SAIC’s Mission Support Business Unit as senior vice president and general manager and was also president of ManTech Security and Mission Assurance.
Prior to beginning at TASC, Hynes served in the U.S. Navy for eight years as a naval aviator as well as an intelligence analyst and department head at the Naval Operational Intelligence Center. He earned a bachelor of science in economics at the U.S. Naval Academy and a master’s in management information systems at George Washington University.
“As a company, we promise our customers to leverage our domain and technical expertise to continuously innovate our processes and integrated offerings,” said Hynes. “Against the backdrop of unpredictable threats and tight budgets, it is essential that we do everything we can to be an even more responsive and agile company. I’m honored to lead that effort for TASC.”
