Chantilly-based American Systems has appointed its vice president of human resources, Chris Braccio, to the employee-owned federal IT and engineering contractor’s board of directors.
Braccio, who has worked for American Systems since 2007, will take over a board seat vacated by Joe Kopfman, who retired after 43 years of service, according to a news release.
“I am delighted that Chris is joining the Board,” Board Chair Bill Hoover said in a statement. “Her passion for her profession and deep commitment to the employee-owners will undoubtedly prove to be an asset to the board and the company.”
Braccio has more than 25 years of experience in human resources and has worked in leadership roles at World Kitchen, StarBand Communications, Sunrise Assisted Living, GTE (now Verizon), Eaton Corp. and National Semiconductor. She received a master’s degree in human resource management from Johns Hopkins University and a bachelor’s degree in business management from the University of Connecticut.
