The nonprofit CRDF Global has appointed Tina Dolph as chief global officer, a role in which she will bring her experience in global operations, critical infrastructure and technology innovation to the organization’s government and private sector clients.
Dolph will be responsible for growing CRDF’s global footprint and expansion strategy, as well as providing leadership in the areas of new technology, cybersecurity and digital transformation.
“I am very excited to join the CRDF Global team and their important mission of advancing global security through science and technology,” she said.
Dolph began her career with GE Aerospace in the early 1990s. She has held leadership roles at federal contractors including Lockheed Martin, PAE and ASRC Federal. Most recently, she was the president and CEO of Siemens Government Technologies.
“We are honored that Tina chose our nonprofit mission and this vital new role of chief global officer to expand our network of support to U.S. and allied governments, particularly in rapidly emerging and disruptive technologies,” said CRDF Global CEO Michael Dignam.
“Her technical expertise in critical infrastructure and digital transformation is an important element of our strategic plan and organizational vision,” Dignam added. “Her ability to navigate the complexities of government modernization and security challenges will allow CRDF Global to expand and deepen or service offerings.”
Over the last five years, CRDF Global has experienced exponential growth driven by the ever-changing nature and complexity of the global technology threat environment.
“The addition of a chief global officer reinforces CRDF Global’s commitment to mitigating global threats by staying on the cutting edge of emerging technologies and their employment by state and non-state actors,” said Tomás Díaz de la Rubia, vice president for research and partnerships at the University of Oklahoma and CRDF Global board chair.
