Glenn Hickok joins Reston-based not-for-profit federal contractor
Reston-based not-for-profit federal contractor Noblis announced Tuesday it has hired Glenn Hickok as vice president of its defense mission area, which provides advanced analytics services for warfighters.
Hickok was most recently the president of mobile forensic software company MSAB’s North American subsidiary. At Noblis, he will direct the company’s work for Department of Defense customers including the Air Force, Army, Navy, Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, Defense Threat Reduction Agency and other organizations.
He also has 10 years of military service under his belt as a helicopter pilot in the U.S. Navy and on the Chief of Naval Operations staff in the Pentagon.
“Glenn is a proven leader with success in strategy, development and execution, and extensive experience working in national security and with DOD,” Noblis President and CEO Amr ElSawy said in a statement. “He will enable us to deliver our expertise and capabilities across a broad spectrum of technical and scientific disciplines including artificial intelligence, identity management, forensics, data analytics, cyber security, cloud transformation, infrastructure resilience, CBRNE and life sciences.”
Hickok earned his bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering from the University of San Diego and his master’s degree in international security from Georgetown University.
Noblis spun off from The Mitre Corp.’s Center for Advanced Aviation System Development in 1996.
