New QinetiQ North America CEO shapes his C-suite

Mark Hewitt named executive VP and chief strategy officer

QinetiQ North America has named Mark Hewitt executive vice president and chief strategy officer, where he will lead strategy formulation, corporate development and strategic investments.

He will also oversee business development activities and will lead the company’s defense and commercial innovation programs, the company said in a release.

This marks the third high-level hire that the company has made in two months. JD Crouch became CEO in the middle of February, and just last week, Gary Slack became president and chief operating officer.

Hewitt joined the company in January 2010 as senior vice president for strategy in the company’s Technology Solutions Group. He then led the Maritime and Transportation division and served as executive vice president for operations and strategic development, the company said.

He holds  a bachelor’s degree in political science from the University of Utah, a master’s degree in defense and strategic studies from Missouri State University, and a Ph.D. in public policy from George Washington University.
