McLean-based Delta Tucker Holdings, Inc., parent company of DynCorp International, Inc. (DI), Friday announced that S. Gordon Walsh has been named the new chief executive officer (CEO). Walsh will officially begin his tenure as CEO of DI on July 21, 2014. He brings two decades of experience in aerospace and defense services to the position.
“Gordon will build on DI’s strong industry position while continuing our legacy of operational excellence,” said Chan Galbato, lead director of Delta Tucker Holdings, Inc. “His experience in logistics solutions, new business development and strategic realignment will enhance DI’s domestic competitiveness while supporting aggressive entry into new markets.”
Walsh will be replacing former DI CEO, Steven F. Gaffney, who has served the company since August 2010.
“We are grateful to Steve Gaffney for his leadership over the last four years,” said Mr. Galbato. DI provides aviation, logistics, training, intelligence and operational solutions to government and military customers. “As domestic defense spending faces new pressures, international spending and new domestic business lines will provide a robust environment for growth,” Galbato. “Gordon is the smart choice to take advantage of the market’s new opportunities.”
