Booz Allen Hamilton CEO Ralph Shrader has finally spoken out about Edward Snowden, the accused NSA leaker hiding in the Moscow airport, saying that the company “cannot and will not let him define us,” according to FedBiz Daily.
“I told our employees, ‘Mr. Snowden was on our payroll but was not a Booz Allen person and did not share our values,” FedBiz Daily quoted Shrader as saying. “Our long-term clients know the kind of company we are."
Shrader added that it is unclear whether Snowden had any impact on any current or future work that Booz Allen is doing. FedBiz Daily suspects that Shrader’s comments were made to appease investors more than anything else.
