AECOM has pulled from within its ranks to hire a new leader for its business development operations.
Robert Earl Johnson was named senior vice president for BD and cyber electromagnetic activities. Johnson will be responsible for leading AECOM’s work at the Fort Gordon Cyber Command and Cyber Center of Excellence, the company said Wednesday.
Johnson was previously AECOM’s senior representative at the Army Cyber Command at Fort Gordon and with the cyber community around Augusta, Georgia.
“Earl has been a key leader in facilitating collaboration and integration across AECOM business groups that have unique capabilities designing, building, managing and operating federal and commercial information technology infrastructure, both in the physical and electronic domains,” said John Vollmer, president of AECOM’s management services group.
“He’ll be leveraging the strength of AECOM and its partners to ensuring the resilience of all aspects of cybersecurity from our Augusta, Georgia office.”
Before joining AECOM, Johnson served 27 years in the Army Signal Corps and retired as a colonel. He then spent 13 years as an executive in the private sector.
