Kalish spent 18 years at CSC. Under his leadership, the Civil Group provided system solutions and IT services to the departments of Energy, Education, Health and Human Services, Homeland Security, Housing and Urban Development, Justice, State, Transportation and Treasury.
Before the Civil Group, Kalish was vice president of CSC's Transportation Systems Center, where he built a system engineering solutions and IT practice that handled major systems development programs for the Coast Guard, Federal Aviation Administration, Transportation Department and the Volpe National Transportation System Center.
"My leadership role at Crown will focus on strengthening the company's business foundation in aviation, bringing the company's skills to new clients, and integrating new technology and consulting skills into the company's portfolio of capabilities," Kalish said.
