Ambit Group restructures executive suite

Kim Hayes becomes CEO, other promotions announced

The Ambit Group has restructured its leadership suite, including naming a new CEO, and has made 12 employee promotions, coinciding with its nine-year anniversary.

Kim Hayes, formerly president, is taking the reins as the company’s CEO, replacing John Condon, who has become chairman of the board, effective this month.

Lou Kerestesy, former chief operating officer, is replacing Hayes as president.

“Over the past nine years our business has evolved and grown to a point where we are ready for the next stage of our corporate history,” said Condon. “Our employee growth and promotions coupled with our office relocation will better position us for future success. We feel these changes will enhance our customer service and delivery function while enabling the firm to remain lean and agile.”

The 12 other leadership promotions that the company made are as follow:

  • Bob Nunnally, chief operations officer
  • Steve Wood, senior vice president, operations and management
  • Doug Berry, vice president for technology solutions
  • Maurice (Mo) Stewart, vice president for client Solutions
  • Don Weber, managing director for quality and management
  • Bryan Bearden, associate vice president
  • Brenda Blackman, associate vice president
  • Ashequl Hoque, vice president, legal and administration
  • Brian Baker, associate vice president, business development
  • Evangeline Weber, art director
  • Andrew Carr, director of business development

“Our employees are the backbone of this company – without each of their own unique strengths our company wouldn’t be what it is today,” Hayes said.

As part of the restructure, the company is also relocating its Reston, Va., office to a larger facility in order to accommodate a growing employee base.
