RESTON, Va.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Science Applications International Corporation (NYSE: SAIC), a premier Fortune 500® technology integrator driving our nation’s digital transformation across the defense, space, civilian and intelligence markets, today announced it will reorganize its business, effective February 3, 2024. The reorganization will seek to accelerate sustainable organic growth, better align with SAIC’s four strategic pivots – portfolio, go-to-market, culture and brand – and ensure the company is focused and agile in allocating investments to maximize innovation, differentiation and long-term value creation.
The current Defense and Civilian Sector and National Security and Space Sector will be replaced by five new business groups – Army; Navy; Air Force and Combatant Commands; Space and Intelligence; and Civilian. The new Civilian group will encompass the current Civilian, Health and State and Local businesses. This flatter organization is designed to enhance customer intimacy for the executive leadership team, who will work closely with the new business group leaders to advance SAIC’s innovation and go-to-market strategy and drive improved cross-collaboration, business development and organic growth.
“SAIC has an unmatched history of partnering with our nation’s most critical mission-driven government customers and offering a best-in-class portfolio of capabilities. As we look ahead, we are becoming a more focused and growth-oriented SAIC that realizes the full potential of our differentiators, fueled by our innovation factory. This builds upon our recent decision to centralize our business development function to prioritize the quality and pace at which we execute our market opportunities,” said SAIC Chief Executive Officer Toni Townes-Whitley. “We are confident the company will continue to bring innovative solutions to market, further prioritize growth and deliver significant long-term value for our shareholders, customers and employees.”
Four of the five new business groups will be led by current SAIC senior vice presidents who will be promoted to executive vice president and report directly to Townes-Whitley beginning on February 3, 2024. Josh Jackson, Barbara Supplee, Vinnie DiFronzo and David Ray, will lead the Army, Navy, Air Force and Combatant Commands and Space and Intelligence business groups, respectively. An external search for the Civilian business group is being conducted to identify a strong best-of-market leader who will drive significant organic growth in this market. Bob Genter, President, Defense and Civilian Sector and Michael LaRouche, President, National Security and Space Sector will depart the company, effective as of February 2, 2024, to pursue opportunities outside of SAIC.
Townes-Whitley added, “On behalf of all of SAIC, I would like to thank Bob and Michael for their leadership and meaningful contributions to SAIC. I would also like to congratulate Josh, Barbara, Vinnie and David on their promotions. Each brings unique expertise and experience that I am confident will best position us to execute our strategic vision and support our customers as they navigate complex national security challenges.”
