Mike Lawrie steps down as chairman of CSRA Inc.
Mike Lawrie is resigning as chairman and a member of the board of directors of Falls Church-based CSRA Inc.
Lawrie is the chairman, president and CEO of CSC Inc., also based in Falls Church, which provides IT services to commercial customers. CSC’s North American public-sector unit merged with SRA International to form CSRA last November.
CSRA provides IT solutions and professional services to government agencies.
Nancy Killefer, currently CSRA’s lead independent director, will succeed Lawrie as chairman, pending her re-election to the board of directors at the company’s annual meeting on Aug. 9. Lawrie’s resignation becomes effective on that date. Larry Prior remains CSRA’s president and CEO.
“With CSRA having completed two successful quarters as a newly minted company – and in light of CSC’s intent to merge with the Enterprise Services unit of Hewlett Packard Enterprise, which itself has a very significant U.S. public sector business – I feel it is the right time to pass the baton to Larry Prior and the other members of the CSRA board,” Lawrie said in a statement.
Killefer previously served as assistant secretary for management and chief financial officer to the U.S. Department of Treasury. She currently serves as vice chair on the Defense Business Board and is a member of the MyVA Advisory Committee. Killefer is a director of the Advisory Board Company, Avon Products Inc. and Cardinal Health Inc.
