People | New execs, customer advocate named

In brief

Michael Strianese, chief financial officer of L-3 Communications Inc., was named interim CEO of the New York company while the board of directors searches for a replacement for L-3 co-founder Frank Lanza, who died this month. Robert Millard, a board member, was named non-executive chairman. He also is a managing director of Lehman Brothers Inc. and head of Lehman Brothers' Global Trading Strategies.

Phillip Bond, senior vice president of government relations at Monster Government Solutions Inc., was named president of the Information Technology Association of America. Bond replaces Robert Laurence, vice president of public sector for Sybase Inc., Dublin, Calif.
