Science Applications International Corp. [SAIC] plans to realign its operating group structure, consolidating its defense and civilian sectors while renaming its National Security Group, the company said last week.
SAIC also said that Jim Scanlon, executive vice president of the Defense Systems Group, will retire at the end of the company’s fiscal year 2021 next January.
“For more than three decades, Jim has been an important leader in shaping the SAIC that we all know today,” Nazzic Keene, SAIC’s CEO, said in a statement. “With Jim’s retirement, we reevaluated our organizational structure, as we look to best align our business strategy and growth priorities.”
The company said the new structure will help it accelerate strategic growth priorities such as digital engineering, digital transformation, and space.
The new organizational structure will be effective Oct. 31. The Defense and Civilian Sector will be led by Bob Genter, the current executive vice president of the Civilian Markets Group. Michael LaRouche, the executive vice president of the National Security Group, will lead the National Security and Space Sector.
