Alexandria, Virginia-based SC3 announced Jan. 30 the promotion of Chad Wagner to chief technology officer and Chuck Hicks to executive vice president for strategic growth.
“SC3 strives to hire and cultivate the best, most well-respected talent to help clients achieve their technology-related business goals,” SC3 CEO David Page said. “Chad and Chuck have both shown exceptional leadership, dedication and vision to help lead SC3 into the future. As we look forward, we must continue to place more emphasis on strategic growth and deployment of technologies for our customers.”
Wagner joined SC3 in 2013 through the acquisition of CompSec LLC and was formerly president of CompSec. He is currently the EVP for SC3’s CES Business Unit, where he works with government customers to identify and integrate product technology to assist with mission directives. Wagner will expand his role to assume the duties of CTO and will drive strategic, cross-company technology initiatives to maximize SC3’s impact on its customers.
Wagner brings more than 20 years of experience in architecting, developing and providing technology solutions to the intelligence community. He earned a B.S. in computer science from the University of Maryland and served in the U.S. Marine Corps.
