LMI has hired Dave Zolet, recently of CSC, to become its 11th president and CEO.
Zolet was executive vice president of CSC for the past five years, heading the technology firm’s Americas region, and, before that, leading its national public sector work. Zolet succeeds Nelson M. Ford, 70, who joined LMI in 2009 and announced his pending retirement earlier this year.
“The talent vying for this position was simply amazing,” said Michael A. Daniels, chairman of LMI’s board. “We’re confident that Dave’s proven leadership and experience are just what LMI needs to grow and expand its mission to improve the management of government.”
Zolet, 56, said he had great respect for LMI’s mission, capabilities and people.
“I’d like to thank Nelson Ford for his leadership and the board for the opportunity to help build upon LMI’s 55-year legacy of providing practical, innovative solutions toward government’s most pressing management problems and opportunities,” Zolet said.
Over a 30-year career, Zolet worked mostly as a general manager, and has also held leadership roles in business development, engineering, strategic planning and customer relations. Before joining CSC, Zolet was vice president of systems integration at IBM, and before than, he spent more than 20 years with Northrop Grumman Corp.
LMI, with $243 million in revenue in 2016, provides consulting services in logistics, information technology, and resource management to more than 40 departments and agencies
