Government services provider Perspecta has appointed Betty Sapp to its board of directors, effective May 1, 2020.
Sapp retired as the director of the National Reconnaissance Office, a joint Defense Department-intelligence community organization, having served as the first woman in that role from July 2012 through June 2019.
“I look forward to welcoming Betty Sapp to our board of directors,” said Mike Lawrie, chairman of the Perspecta board of directors. “Betty brings invaluable experience and unique insight based on her years of leadership within the Department of Defense and Intelligence Community that make her a fitting and impressive addition to our board.”
Sapp served for 17 years in the U.S. Air Force in various acquisition and financial management positions in air and space programs. She then joined the CIA in 1997.
She was later appointed deputy undersecretary of defense for portfolio, programs and resources in the Office of the Under Secretary of Defense of Intelligence in 2007 and served in various strategic leadership roles within the U.S. government before being appointed as NRO director.
“Betty brings a wealth of knowledge to the Perspecta team, not only from her experience in the Intelligence Community, but also from her nearly two decades of active duty service in the Air Force,” said Mac Curtis, president and CEO, Perspecta. “I am confident she will provide valuable guidance as a well-rounded leader who clearly understands our strategic mission focus.”
