Booz Allen Hamilton has announced that Executive Vice President Judi Dotson will lead its national security business and join the firm’s leadership team effective April 1.
Dotson presently leads the firm’s Joint Combatant Command account, with clients throughout the Defense Department’s technology community.
“Judi Dotson is an outstanding leader of our people and our business,” said President and CEO Horacio Rozanski. “She has a strong record of anticipating the needs of our clients, shaping opportunities, and delivering with excellence, all while developing talented teams and the leaders of tomorrow.”
Rozanski also acknowledged Dotson’s predecessor, Executive Vice President Christopher Ling, who is retiring at the end of 2020 after a 29-year career with the firm.
“Booz Allen has been fortunate to have a leader of Christopher’s caliber,” Rozanski said. “He has been instrumental in deepening relationships with key clients in the Intelligence Community and growing our international business.”
Dotson will join a leadership team that already consists of a majority of women. She has extensive experience serving clients at the intersection of national security and technology, including cybersecurity, analytics, digital services and workforce management.
