Alion names new chief strategy, tech officers

Alion Science and Technology has created a new executive position in the chief strategy officer role and moved its current chief technology officer there.

CTO Christopher Zember will become strategy chief for the McLean, Va.-based government services contractor and be responsible for corporate strategy with an emphasis on new technology and engineering offerings, Alion said Monday.

In conjunction, Alion has hired former Thales USA executive Todd Borkey for the CTO position. He will oversee Alion’s technology roadmap and manage relationships and operations related to that.

These appointments come nearly five months after Alion announced the hire of Steve Schorer as its CEO. Schorer is one of several executive hires Veritas Capital has made since its 2015 acquisition of Alion.

Borkey more recently was a CTO and vice president for the Thales USA defense systems solutions business and is also a former executive from Leonardo DRS and Northrop Grumman.

Zember joined Alion in October as CTO and prior to that was director of the Center for Technology and National Security Policy at National Defense University.
