The president of Leidos’ health business is leaving the company to pursue church service and mission work with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.
Jon Scholl submitted his resignation on March 3 and is last day at Leidos will be March 27, according to a regulatory filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Elizabeth Porter, currently operations manager with Leidos’ civil group, will be the acting leader of the health business.
In an emailed statement, Leidos thanked Scholl for his service. He is “stepping down to fulfill a goal of spending several years engaged in church service and mission work,” the company added.
Leidos' health business provides a variety of services to the health care industry including cybersecurity, digital modernization, mission software systems, and operations and logistics. The company is the prime contractor for the Defense Department's new electronic health record, plus the primary subcontractor to Cerner on the Veterans Affairs EHR effort.
Scholl joined Leidos in 2015 and before that was chief strategy officer for Texas Health Resources, a network of health care facilities and hospitals in north Texas. Texas Health describes itself as a faith-based health system. It is affiliated with the Presbyterian and United Methodist churches.
Scholl also is leaving with a $1.5 million one-time separation payment, according to the filing.
