QinetiQ names Cambone strategy VP

QinetiQ North America has hired Stephen Cambone as senior vice president for strategy.

A national security policy expert, Cambone's knowledge of matters of national significance will play an important role as QNA continues to solve the complex challenges that face our Defense Department and intelligence customers, said Duane Andrews, chief executive officer of QinetiQ North America.

Cambone will lead QNA's advisory board and its strategic planning process. He also will direct the assessment of investments in technology and research and development, assist in identifying new business opportunities and participate in the evaluation of mergers and acquisitions, the company said.

From 2003 to 2006, Cambone was the first undersecretary of defense for intelligence, providing policy guidance to and responsible for the development and oversight of DOD intelligence programs and budgets.

Before 2003, he led DOD's strategic planning, including development of strategic policies and plans for the Quadrennial Defense Review.

During the 1990s, Cambone served as staff director for two congressionally mandated commissions, one on ballistic missile threats to the United States, the other on the organization and management of U.S. national security space activities.

Cambone received his doctorate and master's degrees in political science from Claremont Graduate School in Claremont, Calif., and his bachelor's degree in political science from The Catholic University of America, Washington, D.C.

QinetiQ North America of McLean, Va., is a subsidiary of QinetiQ Group plc of Britain and ranks No. 45 on Washington Technology's 2007 Top 100 list of the largest federal government prime contractors.
