Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) has announced that Doug Wagoner has been named an SAIC Sector President. Wagoner replaces Deborah Lee James who was recently confirmed as the next Secretary of the U. S. Air Force. Wagoner will be responsible for the deployment of employees, technology development, and thought leadership in SAIC capabilities and solutions. He will also oversee the efforts of employees who perform network integration, emerging information technology (IT) solutions and managed services, software/hardware integration, mission and systems engineering technical assistance (SETA), logistics and supply chain, and training and simulation for the U.S. government, state, local and commercial customers.
“Doug brings a wealth of experience, knowledge, and operational insight that will enable him to effectively lead his sector as we build SAIC into the leading technology, engineering and enterprise IT services and solution provider,” said SAIC CEO Tony Moraco. “From that experience and his time over the past 13 months helping to build our renewed company, Doug will continue to enhance SAIC’s support to our customers’ most important missions with technological innovations. We’re glad to have him on the leadership team.”
Prior to his appointment, he managed the Project Management Office for Project Gemini, the effort that separated SAIC into two companies. Project Gemini required the design, planning, and implementation to divide an $11 billion highly integrated company with 38,000 employees into two publicly held companies with unique strategic intents. In the process, he helped identify and lead the reduction of more than $400 million in costs.
Wagoner joined SAIC in 2007 and previously was responsible for the leadership of the company’s Homeland and Civilian Solutions Business Unit. He also managed SAIC’s state, local, and commercial IT business.
Prior to joining SAIC, Wagoner served as senior vice president of Data Systems Analysts, and his work included the establishment of strategic direction, development of annual operating and sales plans, and leading business development and line operations. In addition, Wagoner was a vice president at Choice Point (Lexis Nexis), responsible for starting its public sector practice, and worked in line leadership, business development and finance for EDS (HP).
Wagoner has been honored by Federal Computer Week with a Fed100 Award in recognition for his work in reforming the security clearance process. He is also a four-year Board Member and Deputy Chairman of the USO-Metro, where he is responsible for oversight and strategic direction of USO Metro’s executive leadership.
