IT, engineering and science solutions and services provider Leidos announced Lawrence C. Nussdorf has stepped down from its board of directors for medical reasons.
Nussdorf has served on the company’s board since 2010, including as lead outside director from June 2012-May 2018.
Thanks to Nussdorf’s contributions, Leidos “will continue to grow and endure as a global science and technology leader for another 50 years,” said Leidos Chairman and CEO Roger Krone.
“I will be forever thankful for his counsel, mentorship and friendship – he is in our thoughts as he cares for his health with the support of his family and friends,” Krone said of Nussdorf.
During his tenure, Nussdorf oversaw two CEO successions, as well as the company’s successful transition into two separate, publicly traded companies in 2013 — Leidos and Science Applications International Corp.
Nussdorf was also instrumental in several key acquisitions for the company, including the large-scale merger of Leidos with Lockheed Martin’s Information Systems & Global Solutions business in a Reverse Morris Trust transaction in 2016. He also mentored and inspired countless executives and employees.
