STG taps former CIA exec to lead intelligence group

Leah Fendley Tarbell will direct group within Civil Agencies Sector

Leah Fendley Tarbell has been named vice president of the Intelligence Group in STG’s Civil Agencies Sector. In this capacity, she will be responsible for the operation and oversight of a group that has revenues approaching $25 million, according to a company announcement dated May 17.

The Civil Agencies Sector improves the operational efficiencies and reliability of the IT environments federal agencies depend upon, including enterprise network, security and server operations; software and application development; business process re-engineering; data analysis; test and evaluation support; enterprise help desk operations; and linguistics.

Tarbell previously was director of analytic and collaborative tools at Pherson Associates, where she served as a consultant on technology integration and intelligence analysis to the intelligence community.

Before that, she spent more than 27 years at the CIA, retiring in 2010 after having served as a senior executive leading programs and initiatives in collection, analysis and language services.

Tarbell was responsible delivering the Open Source Center’s (formerly the Foreign Broadcast Information Service) award-winning website, the intelligence community’s first product delivery website with managed content and leading-edge interactive capabilities.

Tarbell has a bachelor's degree from the University of the South (Sewanee) and a master's degree from the University of Illinois. She studied Russian at Middlebury College, the Leningrad (now St. Petersburg) State University and Johns Hopkins University, as well as German at the Anglo-German Institute in Stuttgart, Germany.

STG Inc., of Reston, Va., ranks No. 96 on Washington Technology’s 2010 Top 100 list of the largest federal government contractors.
