That appointment also coincides with the elevation of a deputy chief technology officer.

Government IT services company Sev1Tech has elevated a new chief technology officer from within its own ranks in Hector Collazo, a nearly two-decade market veteran who joined the firm earlier this year.

He will lead the Sev1Tech team responsible for developing its long-term technology strategy that also involves the application of science and engineering disciplines, the company said Thursday.

Collazo most recently was vice president of mission technology and innovations at Sev1Tech. Prior to that, he was director of technology at Agile Defense and led that company's overall IT function.

Promotion number two that Woodbridge, Virginia-headquartered Sev1Tech announced sees its former chief security architect Michael Fry move up to deputy CTO.

Fry and Collazo will work together on establishing and speeding up Sev1Tech's growth in federal technology programs, the company said.

A nearly 10-year market veteran, Fry joined Sev1Tech in 2016 and has worked in his current role for nearly one year. His career also includes security and engineering roles at Nordstrom, NDP and the former CRGT.
