MCLEAN, Va., Nov. 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- SAIC today announced key leadership appointments for the businesses that will be created next year following its planned separation into two independent, publicly traded companies, as announced Aug. 30.
National Security, Health & Engineering Solutions Business
- John Jumper, CEO and Chairman of the Board
- Stu Shea, President and COO
- Mark Sopp, CFO
- Vince Maffeo, General Counsel
- Joe Craver, Sector President – Health, Engineering & Commerce
John Jumper, SAIC's current chairman and chief executive officer (CEO), will be appointed as CEO and Chairman of the business focused on delivering science and technology solutions in three high-growth markets that reflect high priority, long-term global needs – national security, engineering and health. Jumper's experience in both defense and global industry and his focus on providing the most advanced technical solutions to war fighters and government and commercial customers, has been an asset to SAIC since his appointment to the Board of Directors in 2007. Stu Shea is SAIC's current Chief Operating Officer (COO) and former group president. He will continue to serve as the company's COO and assume the position of President, leveraging his critical role in developing the restructured solutions business model, while continuing to deliver the benefits of decades of experience in the intelligence community.
Mark Sopp, SAIC's Chief Financial Officer (CFO) since 2005, will continue to support shareholders as the company's CFO. Vince Maffeo, SAIC's current general counsel, who came to the company from ITT Corporation in 2010, will remain on the leadership team and serve in the same capacity. Joe Craver, current group president, will continue to lead the health, engineering, and commerce portions of the business as sector president. With Tony Moraco's planned move to lead the services company, SAIC will initiate an executive search for the president of the national security sector.
The three markets this company represents share an increasingly important convergence of the physical and digital worlds. The combined talents of this leadership team will enable the company to operate fluidly in these complex, data rich markets, and continue SAIC's proud legacy of securing the future of our families, our communities, and our world. Pro forma revenue for the fiscal year ending January 31, 2013 for the future solutions-focused business is estimated at $7 billion.
Government Technical Services & Enterprise IT Business
- Tony Moraco, CEO
- Sandy Sanderson – Non-executive Chairman of the Board
- Tom Baybrook, Chief of Administration and Operations
- John Hartley, CFO
- Deborah Lee James, Sector President – Technical Services
- Nazzic Turner, Sector President – Enterprise IT
Moraco will serve as CEO for the government technical services and enterprise IT business, bringing his in-depth market knowledge and operational excellence to the company. He will lead company initiatives to tap into billions of dollars in new business made accessible by the removal of existing organizational conflicts of interest (OCI) after separation. Prior to his current role as ISR Group President, Moraco served as an Executive Vice President responsible for SAIC's IT, facilities, security, program execution, procurement, shared services and operational initiatives – driving efficiency and effectiveness across the enterprise. Mr. Edward "Sandy" Sanderson will assume the position of Non-executive Chairman of the Board of Directors. He has been a member of the SAIC Board of Directors since 2002 having retired from a career in the technology industry, serving in senior management positions with Oracle, McKinsey & Company, and Accenture.
Tom Baybrook, current acting president of SAIC's Defense Solutions Group (DSG), will serve as the company's chief of administration and operations, leveraging decades of expertise in the federal technical services and IT markets. He will be responsible for a broad range of activities including operations and performance excellence efforts, as well as corporate business management and enterprise service functions.
John Hartley, SAIC senior vice president and corporate controller, will be the company's CFO. Hartley has been SAIC's corporate controller and principal accounting officer since 2005, responsible for SEC reporting, technical accounting, Sarbanes-Oxley compliance, tax and financial planning and analysis, accounting, and government compliance. Prior to joining SAIC in 2001, Hartley spent 12 years with the public accounting firm Deloitte LLP where he focused on the Aerospace and Defense industry.
Deborah Lee James, SAIC's current Executive Vice President for Communications and Government Affairs, will serve as sector president of the company's technical services sector. James formerly served as a business unit general manager within SAIC's DSG focusing on Navy C4 (Command, Control, Computers, Communication) and aviation related business areas. She brings more than 25 years of senior leadership experience in national security programs to her new role, including serving as assistant secretary of defense for Reserve Affairs for more than five years. Nazzic Turner, who recently joined the company from CGI, will serve as sector president for Enterprise IT. She has more than 26 years of experience delivering professional services in both the public and commercial IT sectors, growing and operating professional services practices, and delivering applications, products, systems integration services and outsourced solutions to customers.
Together, the leadership team will manage a diverse contract portfolio utilizing effective tools and efficient processes – one of the largest, pure-play government services companies in the market, competing in a broad market space and leveraging their combined deep mission knowledge and customer relationships to spur growth and increase shareholder value. Pro forma revenue for the fiscal year ending January 31, 2013 for the future technical services business is estimated at $4 billion.
Unleashing Two World-Class Companies
"The talents of these leadership teams and their passion for customer success will enable SAIC to continue its evolution and proud heritage in new ways, as two new companies, growing through the elimination of OCI and adding mass to key growth areas through the next steps in the execution of our strategy," said Jumper. "Once in place, these teams will be at the helm of businesses with optimized cost structures and unrestricted access to their respective markets – both capable of leveraging decades of scientific and engineering excellence. Now is the right time and we have the right teams to unleash these two world-class companies and the value they can deliver to our customers, employees and shareholders."
The separation will take the form of a tax-free spin-off to SAIC stockholders of 100% of the shares of a newly formed company, upon final approval by the Board.
The spin-off is expected to occur in the latter half of next fiscal year.
