Science and technology executive Sharon Hays has joined LMI as senior technical fellow and will help manage the LMI Research Institute, the company’s R&D arm.
“I am excited to have Dr. Hays join our team to drive innovation and help our customers adopt new solutions that result in measurable mission impact,” Chief Technology Officer Sanjay Parthasarathy said. “Sharon’s public sector and commercial experience in leading cross-functional teams is a tremendous asset to LMI as we develop capabilities and offerings to make our customers more agile, more digital, and more secure.”
Hays will spearhead LMI’s R&D program and cultivate strategies to leverage investments and LMI capabilities into new program opportunities and service offerings. She will represent LMI’s perspectives on technical choices focusing on the “voice of the customer,” the company said.
Hays has over 10 years’ industry experience, most recently at General Dynamics Information Technology, where she managed several agency portfolios and led the High Performance Computing Center of Excellence. She also spent over a decade in the federal government, in the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy and on the House Committee on Science.
Hays is the second September hire for LMI. Retired CIA officer Bradford Karony joined the company Sept. 5 as director of national security operations.
