Former GTSI CEO gets a new gig

Sterling Phillips takes over at USIS on Jan. 1

Sterling Phillips, the CEO who turned around and then sold GTSI Corp., has landed a new job leading U.S. Investigations Services.

Phillips starts as CEO of USIS on Jan. 1. The Falls Church, Va.-based company has 6,000 employees worldwide, and provides security consulting and background investigations to the federal government.

USIS is part of Altegrity Inc., a holding company with several firms besides USIS including Kroll Advisory Solutions, Kroll Ontrack and HireRight. Altegrity in turn is owned by Providence Equity Partners, a private equity group that also owns SRA International.

Phillips will report to Altegrity CEO Sharon Rowlands.

“Sterling brings to USIS an impressive blend of government, security and technology experience,” Rowlands said in a statement.

Phillips took the reins at GTSI in November 2010, as it struggled to recover from a scandal and declining revenues. By the time he sold company in June 2012 to Unicom Systems, GTSI had completed an acquisition and was reporting profitability and year-over-year revenue growth.
