Sotera Defense Solutions has named Jennifer H. Felix executive vice president and chief financial officer.
“Having a CFO with the right breadth of experience to champion Sotera’s growth into the $500M+ range, while navigating the complex and dynamic national security market is a must for our organization,” said John Hillen, Sotera president and chief executive officer.
Felix previously served as controller of both Deltek Inc. and Vangent Inc., two private equity-backed companies.
At Deltek, Felix took the company through an initial public offering. Also, as Deltek’s vice president of finance, she built and directed the company’s accounting and finance support functions.
As vice president and corporate controller of Vangent, Felix secured a successful sale to General Dynamics, after which she was took on the role of financial planning director. She was in charge of all mergers and acquisitions for General Dynamics’ Information Systems and Technology segment, the company’s largest and most acquisitive unit, with over $11 billion in technology and services revenue.
She has worked at American Management Systems, where she transformed a decentralized finance organization into one cohesive unit, Sotera said. Felix also spent eight years with Deloitte & Touche, where she worked with high-growth technology companies.
She holds a degree from the University of Maryland and is a member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants and Virginia Society of CPAs.
