JUNE 13 ? Litton-PRC Inc. President Leonard Pomata resigned June 13 after 18 years with the company and nearly four years as president of the McLean, Va.-based systems integrator.
Pomata is being replaced by Barry Rhine, who was senior vice president and general manager of PRC's civilian business.
Pomata is stepping down to pursue interests outside of the business world, according to Timothy Long, PRC vice president of strategic communications and market development.
"He has built the business up to a point that he feels comfortable passing the reins on," Long said.
"On behalf of Litton Industries, I would like to thank Len Pomata for the many contributions he made to PRC and Litton during his service as division president and wish him well in his future endeavors," said Harry Halamandaris, Litton Industries executive vice president and chief operating officer.
PRC is a subsidiary of Litton Industries Inc. of Woodland Hills, Calif., and is under Litton's Information Systems Group.
Under Pomata, PRC hit record revenue, profits and cash flow, Long said. In 1999, PRC had $895 million in revenue. ìHe leaves a significant legacy," Long said.
Pomata became PRC's president in 1996 after serving as senior vice president and general manager of PRC's systems integration business. He also is a former vice president and general manager of PRC's technical services division and division general manager of PRC's submarine technology and sciences division.
Before joining PRC, Pomata worked for Computer Sciences Corp. and Bell Laboratories.
Rhine joined PRC in 1979 after serving as an officer in the Air Force. Since coming to PRC, Rhine has held several positions, including senior vice president and general manager of PRC's defense business, which he held just before taking over the civilian business.
"We are very pleased to have an individual with Barry Rhine's background, experience and knowledge of PRC and its customers," Halamandaris said. "We look forward to Barry's leadership in further enhancing PRC's position as a leading provider of scientific, engineering and information technology-based solutions for public-sector clients."
