ManTech International Corp. today announced it has named Lawrence Prior III as president and chief operating officer, starting in early July.
Prior, who had been chief operating officer at Science Applications International Corp. since October 2007, also will join the ManTech board of directors. He replaces Robert Coleman, who had served in those positions starting in September 2004. Coleman announced his resignation in March.
Prior served as president of SAIC’s intelligence, security and technology group from 2004 to 2007. He previously was chief executive of LightPointe Communications and also has served as chief administrative officer for the county of San Diego and as an executive at TRW.
Prior was a professional staff member of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, after more than a decade as an intelligence officer for the Marine Corps.
“I am very pleased to welcome Larry to the ManTech team as his extensive experience will be critical in helping us achieve our next stage growth goals over the next several years," George Pedersen, chief executive officer and chairman of ManTech, said in a statement today. "Larry brings exceptional attributes to the position and will be a key partner with me and our Board of Directors in making ManTech the premier midtier national security firm in the marketplace.”
ManTech, based in Fairfax, Va., has approximately 8,000 employees and annual revenues of approximately $2 billion. It ranked No. 48 on Washington Technology’s 2009 Top 100 list of federal prime contractors in 2009.
