SRA International Inc. has named Rick Nadeau executive vice president and chief financial officer effective June 1.
Nadeau will replace SRA’s corporate controller, Melissa Burgum, who was named acting CFO while the company continued its search for a permanent candidate. Burgum will resume her role as corporate controller reporting to Nadeau. He will report to SRA President and Chief Executive Stan Sloane.
In his new role, Nadeau will be responsible for the company’s financial operations, including all corporate accounting, financial strategy and business planning, a company announcement said today.
He also will oversee the corporate controllership, treasury and tax functions, and play an instrumental role in the company’s mergers and acquisitions, balance sheet management and capital investment decisions.
Nadeau has more than 32 years of executive experience in the private sector. Before joining SRA, he was CFO at Sunrise Senior Living Inc., where he led efforts to complete their accounting restatement and improve the company’s governance, accounting and internal control processes.
Nadeau began his career with Arthur Andersen LLP and he was a member of the SRA audit team during his career there. Later, Nadeau joined KPMG as a senior reviewing partner where he was the lead engagement and audit partner for many large-scale, complex companies including a number of government contractors in the Washington, D.C., area.
“Rick’s extensive experience, combined with his track record of success in the professional services industry and financial know-how in government contracting, will serve us well as we continue to focus on our organic growth strategies,” Sloane said.
SRA International, of Fairfax, Va., ranks No. 26 on Washington Technology’s 2009 Top 100 list of the largest federal government prime contractors.
