Booz Allen Hamilton has hired Frank Calvelli, former principal deputy director of the National Reconnaissance Office, as a senior vice president within the national security business.
He will lead Booz Allen’s work across intelligence and space to drive transformation and integration for critical missions supporting the national security sector.
“Frank’s deep expertise is tremendously valuable to the transformation journey of our space portfolio,” said Booz Allen Executive Vice President Judi Dotson. “Space intelligence and defense are coming together as one, and Frank will help position us in that nexus.”
In his eight years of NRO leadership, Calvelli helped manage the day-to-day operations of the agency’s highly technical, 3,500-person organization and oversaw a large, complex portfolio of programs, including satellite and ground development, mission operations and facilities.
He received the Presidential Rank Award for Distinguished Service, the National Intelligence Distinguished Service Medal and the CIA Distinguished Career Intelligence Medal. Calvelli was also awarded the NRO Gold Medal for Distinguished Performance three times.
“Booz Allen has strong capabilities in building and integrating spacecraft systems, and we’re well positioned to expand our role to further integrate across multiple space systems,” said Booz Allen Senior Vice President Steve DelBusso. “With his unmatched insights into government and the field, Frank will help accelerate this transformation and take our strategic integration journey to the next level.”
