Perspecta CEO becomes chairman of board
Mac Curtis succeeds Mike Lawrie as chairman
Mac Curtis, president and CEO of Chantilly-based federal contractor Perspecta Inc., has been appointed chairman of the company’s board of directors, effective Aug. 5, the date of the company’s 2020 annual shareholders meeting.
Curtis has served as president and CEO of Perspecta since the publicly traded company was launched in June 2018 as a result of the merger of the U.S. public sector business of DXC Technology with Vencore Holding Corp. and KeyPoint Government Solutions. Prior to leading Perspecta, Curtis was the president and CEO of Vencore.
He succeeds Mike Lawrie, who is retiring from the position he has held as Perspecta’s board chairman since its founding. Philip Nolan, the current lead independent director, will continue to serve in this role following Lawrie’s retirement.
“As president and CEO of Perspecta, Mac has delivered solid results, making Perspecta a leading U.S. government IT services provider focused on mission-critical outcomes,” Lawrie said in a statement. “Mac has led Perspecta for two very successful years, executing a seamless integration of the legacy companies, enhancing Perspecta’s innovative solutions and services and developing a talented workforce. Mac’s deep industry knowledge, executive management skills and strategic and tactical capabilities make him ideally suited to lead Perspecta’s continued growth as chairman.”
“On behalf of Perspecta and the board, I want to thank Mike Lawrie for his leadership and guidance over the past two years,” Curtis said. “Mike’s experience and perspective helped accelerate Perspecta’s integration and growth as a leading U.S. government services provider. I look forward to working with the board as we continue to effectively execute our strategy and grow the business while driving value for employees, customers and shareholders.”
