From June 2016 to August 2018, she served Huntington Ingalls Industries as chief growth officer and senior vice president, during which she helped implement new growth strategies following the HII acquisition of Camber.
At Buchanan & Edwards, Bleken was appointed CEO and member of the board of directors with responsibilities including directing a team of professionals that specialized in the development and integration of technology solutions and organizational management services.
The executive also worked as senior vice president at CGI in charge of the defense agency programs business unit at CGI Federal from August 2010 to February 2013 and as mission systems group vice president at Stanley Associates from August 2000 to August 2010.
Before working in the private sector, Bleken served the Army for eight years as a logistical supply specialist.
