Cipriano joins Lockheed Martin IT team

Lockheed Martin Corp. has hired Joseph Cipriano, the former Navy program executive officer for information technology, to serve on its information technology team as vice president for advanced solutions, the company announced Oct. 18.

In his new position, Cipriano will assist Bethesda, Md.-based Lockheed Martin in designing major proposals that support federal agencies and commercial clients. He also will be responsible for crafting the company's strategy for future large-scale, managed system procurements.

Cipriano has an extensive government service background. Most recently, he served as the Navy's program executive officer for IT from 1999 through September 2002. In that capacity, he was in charge of developing and fielding the Navy-Marine Corps Intranet program, as well as overseeing enterprisewide applications, such as the Defense Integrated Military Human Resource System and the Navy Standard Integrated Personnel System.

Before his program executive position, Cipriano served at Naval Sea Systems Command as battle force system engineer and deputy commander for warfare systems. He also has held other positions in the Navy and has worked for the Department of Energy.

Cipriano has received a number of professional awards during his career, including the Presidential Distinguished Executive Rank Award, 2001 Post Newsweek Government Executive of the Year and the Distinguished Civilian Service Award.
