Executive Alan Weakley has today been named president of Sterling Global Operations (SGO). Weakley comes to SGO from Computer Sciences Corp. (CSC) where he served as president of the company’s Defense Group since 2011.
“This is a great addition to our SGO team,” said Matt Kaye, CEO of SGO. “We’re growing and diversifying into new lines of business. Alan brings a powerful set of skills and experience that will enable us to expand SGO’s global footprint and build our operations. Alan’s breadth of knowledge in running organizations and his proven leadership in bringing about strategic growth will be major factors contributing to the success of Sterling Global Operations’ strategic plan.”
“Alan is well known in our industry for his abilities and accomplishments,” Kaye added. “We’re glad he’s becoming an integral part of our team and we look forward to great things for our company.”
While serving as President of CSC‘s Applied Technology Group from 2009 to 2011, Weakley led more than 8,000 employees who worked under U.S. government contracts for base operations support services, training services, aviation maintenance, and tactical and training range operation services around the globe.
Prior to CSC, Weakley held multiple positions with other organizations that include vice president and general manager of Engineering & Technology Services, for the URS Corporation in Md., and as a director of multiple divisions for EG&G Federal Services in Va.
“I’ve been familiar with SGO for some time,” said Weakley. “The company has done terrific work and has a great reputation around the world for protecting the lives of American military personnel, U.S. interests, and making the world a safer place by removing landmines and other explosive remnants of war.”
He continued, “Now SGO has moved into supporting the oil and natural gas industry, and it’s developing other new lines of business as well. The company’s long-term potential is enormous, and helping it reach that potential is exactly what I love to do. I’m also deeply impressed with SGO’s ethics and values, which are strongly aligned with my own.”
