Leidos names new CFO
Christopher Cage starts new role at Fortune 500 contractor on July 5
Longtime Leidos Holdings Inc. executive Christopher Cage has been named as the Reston-based federal contractor’s new chief financial officer.
Cage will begin his role July 5. He currently serves as senior vice president and chief accounting officer for the Fortune 500 company, where he’s worked since 1999.
Cage was director of financial planning and analysis with Ledios when it was SAIC. He became senior vice president and CFO of the company’s health and engineering sector in 2009, and in 2016 took the role of senior vice president, operations finance.
The announcement of Cage’s appointment coincided with the company’s first quarter report May 4, when Leidos Chairman and CEO Roger Krone announced a 14.7% increase in quarterly revenues to $3.32 billion.
“As demonstrated by today’s strong, first quarter financial results and growth momentum,” Krone said in a statement, “we are well-positioned to deliver on our business commitments and believe Chris brings the right skills to help drive Leidos forward on our current path of value creation.”
Cage holds a bachelor’s degree in accounting and MBA from San Diego State University, and graduated from the Harvard Business School Advanced Management Program in 2019.
Cage will succeed James Reagan, who announced his retirement and will serve in an advisory role through the year.
