NuWave adds another DHS vet to leadership team

One month on from getting a new investor, NuWave Solutions has made another addition to the executive team to help shape the government IT outfit’s next phase.

McLean, Virginia-based NuWave appointed as chief operating officer Andre Hentz, a former Homeland Security Department official whose career there included stints as acting deputy undersecretary for science and technology and chief scientist.

Hentz is the second DHS veteran to join the NuWave leadership team alongside CEO Dr. Reggie Brothers, the former DHS undersecretary for science and technology who prior to that was deputy assistant secretary for research at the Defense Department.

In June, private equity firm AE Industrial Partners acquired a majority stake in NuWave and subsequently appointed Brothers as chief executive and two-decade defense sector veteran Michael Buscher as chief growth officer.

NuWave has also since then added a new chief technology officer in Keith Conner, a nearly two-decade research-and-development veteran and former senior director of innovation at Peraton. Conner's career in industry includes senior technical positions with Bell Labs, BAE Systems and Technical Solutions LLC. He also once worked as a senior technical engineer at DHS.
