Noblis announces new CEO
Amr ElSawy to be succeeded by Mile Corrigan
Noblis Inc. President and CEO Amr ElSawy will step away in October after 15 years leading the company, the Reston-based not-for-profit federal contractor announced this week.
Mile Corrigan, senior vice president of Noblis’ Federal Civilian Solutions (FCS) division, has been named executive vice president and will become president and CEO when ElSawy leaves.
“During Amr’s tenure, Noblis has significantly grown and matured as a leading science and technology organization and built a strong foundation for driving mission impacts and sustainable growth,” Noblis Board of Trustees Chairman Michael Chertoff said in a news release. “On behalf of the board, I want to thank him for his immeasurable contributions and strong leadership over the years.”
ElSawy will leave Oct. 12. Jordin Cohen will serve as acting vice president of FCS while maintaining his current role as the company’s vice president of homeland security until a permanent FCS leader is named.
“The company and leadership team have evolved significantly since I joined as the chief executive 15 years ago. We have been named one of the world’s most ethical companies and a top workplace for multiple consecutive years, received numerous patents and have delivered innovative solutions to help enrich lives and protect our nation,” said ElSawy in a statement. “We’re ready for the next phase of growth and I know that Mile will continue building on our successes.”
Corrigan has been with Noblis 21 years. She earned her MBA from Georgetown University and a bachelor’s in management science and information technology from Virginia Tech. She is also a member of the Women in Aerospace Board.
“Amr has been an exemplary leader and I’m honored to be selected by the board as his successor and for the opportunity to build on his legacy,” said Corrigan. “I look forward to working together to ensure a seamless transition for our clients, employees and other stakeholders.”
Mark Simione, Noblis’ senior vice president, chief financial and administrative officer and treasurer, has announced he plans to retire in July. Gary Sladic, vice president of finance and accounting, was appointed deputy chief financial officer and will assume the top role after Simione’s retirement this summer.
Last year was a busy one for Noblis. In September 2021, the contractor landed a five-year $263 million contract from the Defense Threat Reduction Agency to implement the Cooperative Threat Reduction program. In July 2021, Noblis rebranded McKean Defense Group, which it acquired in April 2021, as Noblis MSD. It won a $72 million Navy contract in August 2021.
