Parsons Corp. has promoted Hector Cuevas to executive vice president of missile defense and C5ISR market leader.
Cuevas joined the company in January 2019 from the acquisition of OGSystems and most recently was senior vice president of product sales operations.
Cuevas is a decorated combat veteran with 20 years of U.S. Army and intelligence community service. Most of his military career entailed supporting U.S. and allied special military operations, including foreign internal defense, civil-military support, partner nation capacity building, and direct action.
Cuevas led geospatial intelligence and ISR support to over 100 special operations missions in West, Central and the Horn of Africa with Special Operations Command-Africa before retiring in 2012. As branch chief, Cuevas is credited for originating an ISR system tailored to operations in Africa that optimized collection and increased operational efficiencies.
Parsons President and Chief Operating Officer Carey Smith said Cuevas’ experience will be vital to expanding the company’s missile defense and C5ISR markets, and “broadening our software and hardware technology, and furthering our culture of performance, exploration and inclusion.”
