Established in 1969, the organization had more than 4K employees and a revenue of over $800M as of the second quarter of 2020.

In July 2020, the organization announced that it purchased Vricon for roughly $140M as part of efforts to expand initiatives in 3D technology and Earth intelligence markets. The McLean, Virginia-headquartered analytics company provides satellite-based 3D data for intelligence and defense sectors as well as software products for military training and simulation.

He joined the organization in March 2012, taking on the role of senior vice president, general counsel and corporate secretary. He was the general manager for international defense and intelligence from 2015 to 2017. 

From January 2011 to March 2012, he was a shareholder at the law firm of Brownstein, Hyatt, Farber, Schreck, serving as a corporate M&A and securities attorney. 

He previously served in various companies in different capacities, including as an in-house counsel at UBS Financial Services, a corporate and securities attorney at O’Melveny & Myers and an interim co-general counsel of Flextronics International.
