Mitre hires chief information officer
Deborah Youmans comes to organization from Booz Allen
The Mitre Corp., a McLean-based not-for-profit organization that manages federally funded research and development centers, has hired Deborah Youmans as its new chief information officer, it announced Monday.
A Virginia Tech graduate who has an MBA from the University of Maryland, Youmans joins Mitre from McLean-based Booz Allen Hamilton, where she was most recently vice president and deputy CIO and, before that, served as director of Booz Allen’s information systems sector. She has more than 25 years of experience in enterprise IT development and delivery, and will lead more than 400 IT employees in Mitre’s enterprise computing and information systems division. Before working at Booz Allen, she was a software project manager and implementation manager at CACI International and American Management Systems.
“Deborah brings the vision, strategy and tactics to continue and build on our best-in-class IT capabilities, paving the way for MITRE’s continued growth,” Cedric Sims, Mitre’s senior vice president for enterprise innovation and integration, said in a statement. “We welcome her leadership on the adoption of new systems and technologies that will play a critical role in enabling cross-functional, cross-sponsor engagement as Mitre leans into the future to tackle challenges of national importance.”
Mitre, which has dual headquarters in McLean and in Bedford, Massachusetts, was founded in 1958 and has more than 8,000 employees. Youmans will be located in McLean.
