Booz Allen shuffles execs to better meet agency needs

Booz Allen Hamilton’s annual corporate strategy review ended last week with several executive moves – and more changes likely in the next few weeks – all aimed at recognizing the greater need of government agencies to generate efficiencies in today’s economic environment.

The moves also reflect the growing demand for cyber services in financial services, health care, and international markets, the Oct. 21 company announcement said.

Among the moves, John M. McConnell has been named vice chairman of the firm charged with overseeing the further development of Booz Allen’s cyber capabilities across the breadth of the business.

The change will enhance the firm’s ability to align its cyber capabilities to meet the needs of a broader range of clients across the civil, defense, commercial and international markets, as well as national security, the company said.

McConnell previously served as executive vice president overseeing Booz Allen’s Intelligence market.

In other moves, Executive Vice President Richard Wilhelm will now lead the Intelligence market and Senior Vice President Karen Dahut will join the firm’s senior Leadership Team, replacing Wilhelm as head of the firm’s Analytics capability.

Additionally, Senior Vice President Betty Thompson was named to the Leadership Team in her role as chief personnel officer.

In the coming weeks, some additional changes in responsibility beyond the Leadership Team will also take place as part of this strategic realignment process, Booz Allen said.

Booz Allen Hamilton, of McLean, Va., ranks No. 9 on Washington Technology’s 2011 Top 100 list of the largest federal government contractors.
