Several companies in the government market have announced their latest executive hires within the past two days and here is a summary of the key moves to take note of.

Several companies in the government market have announced their latest executive hires within the past two days that span C-level appointments and the operational level.

Here is a roundup of five people moves that came to our attention.

Serco Inc.

Trey Theimer, a two-decade market veteran and former Peraton executive, will join Serco Group’s subsidiary for the U.S. and Canada on Monday as chief growth officer and senior vice president.

She will report to Serco Inc. CEO Dave Dacquino and be responsible for what the company calls “big deal pursuit” strategic planning, business development operations and acquisitions.

Theimer was most recently vice president of growth at Peraton. Her career also includes roles at Accenture, Deloitte and the former Computer Sciences Corp.

Maxar Technologies

Thomas Whayne, formerly chief financial officer at OneWeb, has joined space infrastructure and Earth intelligence company Maxar as chief strategy officer.

Whayne's areas of responsibility and contribution will span corporate development functions including acquisitions and strategic investments.

At OneWeb, he led efforts to raise at least $3 billion in capital for furthering the development of a satellite constellation for global broadband communications.

BlackSky

A publicly-traded space company as of Sept. 10, this provider of geospatial intelligence has brought in nearly two-decade sector veteran Amy Minnick as chief commercial officer.

She will oversee BlackSky’s push to grow its presence among commercial markets and be part of efforts to complement that with expansion in the government arena.

Herndon, Virginia-headquartered BlackSky’s stock now trades on the New York Stock Exchange after its merger with special purpose acquisition company Osprey Technology Acquisition Corp.

Minnick most recently was chief business officer at Cape Analytics, a provider of geospatial imagery to property insurance companies. Prior to that, she led the commercial and civil government business of Maxar’s imagery division.

Mercury Systems

Roger Wells, formerly vice president and general manager of Teledyne FLIR’s unmanned and integrated solutions business, now heads the microelectronics division of Mercury as its president.

Wells started his new role at Mercury on Monday and will focus on making that technology more widely available across the aerospace and defense markets. The 25-year sector veteran is a former Defense Department civilian who also worked in stints at ICX Technologies and Northrop Grumman.

Mercury unveiled the hire of Wells less than a week after the company announced its board of directors had elected member William O’Brien as chairman to succeed the now-retired Vincent Vitto. The board also elected a new member in Deborah Plunkett, former director of information assurance at the National Security Agency.

Teledyne FLIR

In the wake of Wells’ move to Mercury, Teledyne FLIR has elevated Anne Bulik to vice president of its unmanned aerial systems business that includes the vehicles themselves and augmenting technologies such as sensors.

She will report to Dr. David Cullin, general manager of the unmanned and integrated solutions business. Teledyne FLIR touts its vehicles as in use for the U.S. military and at least 50 other countries.

Bulik joined the former FLIR Systems in 2020 to lead its Waterloo, Ontario UAS business and that company was acquired earlier this year by Teledyne Technologies. Her career also includes roles at Raytheon and Andritz Hydro.
