DLH appoints new growth chief, operating unit exec

Health IT firm DLH hires both a new chief growth officer and president to lead its public health and life sciences operating unit.

Health IT company DLH has made a pair of key leadership hires, one of which to lead growth functions for the entire corporation and a second to oversee one of its operating units.

DLH said Tuesday it appointed 25-year federal market veteran and former Leidos executive Jacqueline Everett as chief growth officer, where she will oversee business development and other related activities.

Everett most recently was vice president of business development and strategy at Leidos and her career also includes roles at DXC Technology, the former Computer Sciences Corp. and Serco Inc.

Atlanta-based DLH’s second appointment is of Jeanine Christian as president of the Social & Scientific Systems unit, also known as S3. Christian will lead operations focused on the public health and life sciences market, which DLH bolstered its footprint in last year through the acquisition of S3.

Prior to DLH, Christian was vice president and business line manager for Battelle’s public health research division. There she led a team of close to 300 scientists, clinicians, researchers and data analysts that worked to translate scientific discovery and technology advances into societal benefits for federal and state government, nonprofit, academic and commercial clients.
