SAIC Announces Leadership Changes for 2013 Company Separation

Stu Shea, SAIC

SAIC has made changes to its key leadership with new appointments for the businesses that will be created next year following the planned separation into two independent, publicly traded companies.

In National Security, Health & Engineering Solutions Business John Jumper is CEO and Chairman of the Board, with Stu Shea as President and COO, Mark Sopp as CFO, Vince Maffeo as General Counsel, and Joe Craver as Sector President for Health, Engineering & Commerce.

In Government Technical Services & Enterprise IT Business, Tony Moraco is CEO, with Sandy Sanderson as Non-Executive Chairman of the Board, Tom Baybrook as Chief of Administration and Operations, John Hartley as CFO, Deborah Lee James as Sector President, Technical Services, and Nazzic Turner as Sector President, Enterprise IT.

Jumper said, “The talents of these leadership teams and their passion for customer success will enable SAIC to continue its evolution and proud heritage in new ways, as two new companies, growing through the elimination of OCI and adding mass to key growth areas through the next steps in the execution of our strategy. Once in place, these teams will be at the helm of businesses with optimized cost structures and unrestricted access to their respective markets – both capable of leveraging decades of scientific and engineering excellence. Now is the right time and we have the right teams to unleash these two world-class companies and the value they can deliver to our customers, employees, and shareholders.”

Jumper will focus on delivering science and technology solutions in three high-growth areas: national security, engineering, and health, with Shea leveraging his critical role in developing the restructured solutions business model while continuing to deliver the benefits of decades of experience in the intelligence community. Sopp, CFO since 2005, will continue to support shareholders and Maffeo will do the same.

Moraco will bring his in-depth market knowledge and operational excellence to the company, leading company initiatives to tap into billions of dollars in new business made accessible by the removal of existing organizational conflicts of interest (OCI) after separation.

Prior to his current role, Moraco was the Executive Vice President responsible for SAIC’s IT, facilities, security, program execution, procurement, shared services, and operational initiatives.

Sanderson has been a member of the SAIC Board of Directors since 2002, having retired from a career in the technology industry, and Baybrook will be responsible for a broad range of activities including operations and performance excellence efforts, as well as corporate business management and enterprise service functions.

Hartley has been SAIC’s corporate controller and principal accounting officer since 2005, responsible for SEC reporting, technical accounting, Sarbanes-Oxley compliance, tax and financial planning and analysis, accounting, and government compliance. Prior to this, he spent 12 years with public accounting firm Deloitte, LLP.

James, who brings more than 25 years of senior leadership experience in national security programs, formerly served as a business unit general manager within SAIC’s DSG focusing on Navy C4 (Command, Control, Computers, Communication) and aviation related business areas.

Turner, who recently joined from CGI, has more than 26 years of experience delivering professional services in both the public and commercial IT sectors, growing and operating professional services practices and delivering applications, products, systems integration services, and outsourced solutions to customers.
