Former counterintelligence official joins Peraton advisory board
Herndon-based contractor taps Bill Evanina
The former director of the National Counterintelligence and Security Center, William “Bill” Evanina, has joined the advisory board of Peraton Inc., the Herndon-based national security contractor announced this week.
Evanina led the counterintelligence center since June 2014, serving under presidents Barack Obama and Donald Trump. He also worked for more than 16 years with the FBI and did a nine-month stint as chief of the CIA’s counterintelligence division/counterespionage group.
Evanina is a graduate of Wilkes University and earned his master’s degree in educational leadership from Arcadia University.
Peraton grew out of Veritas Capital’s 2017 acquisition of the former government services business Harris Corp. Peraton provides systems development and mission capability integration through the U.S. federal contracts.
In recent months Peraton made two big purchases: a $7.1 billion acquisition of Chantilly-based federal contractor Perspecta Inc. and a $3.4 billion acquisition of Northrop Grumman’s integrated mission support and IT solutions business. Now branded as Peraton Remotec, the Tennessee-based subsidiary provides mobile robot systems for hazardous duty operations.
