SOS International has named the retired Army brigadier general who served as the chief logistics architect of the troop surge in Iraq a decade ago to oversee a scale-up of the company’s global logistics capabilities.
Retired Army Brig. Gen. Steven M. Anderson is joining SOSi as vice president of logistics services for the company’s Mission Solutions Group.
SOSi counts the Defense and State departments among its key customers.
Most recently, Anderson worked as chief growth officer for Sallyport Global. Also on his resume are two years as the country manager for Afghanistan for Fluor Corp., where he led a workforce of 6,500 employees.
Overall, Anderson spent 31 years in the U.S. Army, including as deputy chief of staff for logistics for the multinational force in Iraq and as director of Army Logistics Operations and Readiness in the Pentagon.
“Steve brings impeccable credentials and a long history of achievement leading logistics, project management and business development around the globe,” said Frank Helmick, senior vice president of SOSi’s Mission Solutions unit. “As our operations continue to scale globally, Steve’s expertise provides us with a significant competitive edge; we’ll be better positioned to resolve challenges proactively, effectively and efficiently.”
Anderson graduated from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point with a bachelor’s degree in engineering and has a master’s degree in operations research from the Naval Postgraduate School.
SOSi also recently hired Booz Allen Hamilton technology executive Michael Haney to be the company’s chief information officer.
