After multiple comings and goings, and maybe a dust-up or two, several top government and industry information technology executives are again top government and industry IT execs.
Paul Leslie, former president and chief executive officer of Apogen Technologies Inc., sent an e-mail message to friends: "As many of you already know, with Apogen Technologies beginning its integration to become part of a larger QinetiQ North America, I have decided to leave my position there."
A few days later, he added that QinetiQ's integration plan was something "I just don't get a lot of energy from." The company had operated almost independently since its acquisition by QinetiQ in 2005.
Leslie is taking the summer to meet with private-equity groups, investment bankers and other IT companies, and he plans to get back in the game by fall.
The board of directors at Computer Sciences Corp. tapped company President and Chief Operating Officer Michael Laphen to replace Van Honeycutt as president and CEO when his term expires July 30. Laphen has been with the company for 30 years.
Rick Yuse was named president of Raytheon Co.'s Technical Services unit, succeeding Bryan Even. The largest part of Yuse's 31 years at Raytheon has been spent in the company's Integrated Defense Systems business.
Roger Baker moved from General Dynamics Corp., where he was IT vice president and chief information officer, to systems integrator Dataline Inc., where he is president and CEO.
Marty Wagner, a longtime General Services Administration official who retired in January after 31 years in government, has joined the IBM Center for the Business of Government as a senior fellow. Wagner joins former government colleagues Jonathan Breul, Mark Abrahamson and Jonathan Kamensky.
