Retired Lt. Gen. J. Kevin McLaughlin, former deputy commander of U.S. Cyber Command, has joined E3/Sentinel’s board of the directors, the company announced.
E3/Sentinel is a NewSpring Holdings platform company.
The company cited McLaughlin’s distinguished career, which spanned more than 30 years and multiple joint and Air Force operational, cyber and space commands, including the 24th Air Force (Cyber Operations).
McLaughlin, who entered the Air Force in 1983, retired in 2017 as deputy commander of U.S. Cyber Command, a post in which he directed a 12,000 personnel and managed a $525 million budget.
McLaughlin now serves as the director for cyber policy, strategy and security at the George Bush School of Government and Public Service at Texas A&M University.
“I am excited to be a part of this team,” McLaughlin said. “I appreciate Andy Maner’s vision for the platform, as one centered on the deep skills of E3/Sentinel’s experienced colleagues as they support the missions of their customers. I look forward to providing my insights, experiences, and perspectives to the board and helping to drive growth for the company.”
In a statement, E3/Sentinel CEO Andy Maner said: “General McLaughlin’s leadership and development experience will be extremely valuable to our Board of Directors. We look forward to learning from his acute understanding of technology, space, cyber, and other domains for the warfighter as we continue to innovate on our skills, processes, and technology for our customers.”
