Ken Sharp, formerly vice president and chief financial officer at Northrop Grumman’s defense system sector, will take on the role of executive vice president and CFO at DXC Technology on Nov. 30, reporting directly to president and CEO Mike Salvino.
He will oversee the organization’s global financial strategy and reporting, general accounting, controllership and investor relations. He will succeed Neil Manna, who has been the interim CFO and has retained his position as senior vice president and corporate controller.
According to Salvino, Sharp is a major addition to the senior management team, adding that he “is a proven hands-on, operations-focused finance leader who knows the industry and has deep experience in executing transformation journeys.”
Sharp said he is optimistic about the company’s transformation initiatives and the new leadership group.
“It’s exciting to be part of another transformation, and I look forward to helping accelerate DXC’s transformation journey and being part of the ‘new DXC’,” he said.
Prior to joining Northrop Grumman, Sharp served for almost three years as senior vice president for finance at Orbital ATK, leading the operational finance and corporate functions, including financial planning and analysis, controllership, regulatory compliance and shared services.
Previously, he was a senior vice president, corporate controller and chief financial officer at Leidos for nearly three years. During his tenure, he was in charge of the company’s Securities and Exchange reporting, Sarbanes-Oxley compliance, government and IT accounting systems and tax.
From 2001 to 2012, he worked at Computer Sciences Corporation, serving in various roles in increasing responsibility. For 11 years, he held various positions, including deputy director for internal audit, director for corporate development mergers and acquisitions and vice president for different financial operations units.
A U.S. Marine Corps Reserves veteran with the rank of sergeant and service in Operations Desert Shield and Desert Storm and a CPA holder, Sharp graduated from the University of Maryland with a degree in accounting and earned his master’s degree in business administration from George Washington University.
