Alexandria distribution, maintenance provider names senior VP, CFO
Stephen D. Griffin joins VSE Corp.
Alexandria-based defense contractor VSE Corp., a provider of distribution and maintenance, repair and overhaul services focused on transportation assets, announced last week it has named Stephen D. Griffin as senior vice president and chief financial officer, effective Nov. 9.
Griffin will succeed Thomas Loftus, who is retiring and will remain at the company until Dec. 31 through the leadership transition. Griffin will report directly to VSE President and CEO John Cuomo and will oversee the company’s finance, accounting, financial planning and analysis, internal audit, tax and treasury functions.
With more than a decade in senior finance leadership roles with General Electric Co. (GE), Griffin most recently served as CFO of engine services with GE Aviation, where he oversaw the finances for a $15 billion sales division.
“Steve is a strategic, operationally minded financial executive with a proven ability to build, develop and lead high-performing teams,” Cuomo said in a statement. “He brings to VSE a depth of experience managing sophisticated, multibillion-dollar financial organizations operating within dynamic global market environments, including those within the aerospace and industrials sector.”
Founded in 1959, VSE provides services to the Department of Defense including work on military vehicles, ships and aircraft, along with technology and engineering services.
