Matt Tait to Succeed Kevin Philips as CEO, President of ManTech International

Matt Tait, chief operating officer of ManTech International, will succeed Kevin Philips as CEO and president. Philips, a member of the Potomac Officers Club and 2022 Wash100 recipient, will transition into the role of chairman of the board of directors. He is joined on the board by Tait and Carlyle executives Dayne Baird, Brian Bernasek, Ian Fujiyama and Tom Rabaut. Carlyle, a private equity firm headquartered in Washington, D.C., acquired ManTech in September for $4.2 billion. The leadership changes are to take effect immediately, ManTech said.

Other board members include Mary Bush, president of Bush International; Jonathan Darby, former director of operations of the National Security Agency; Beth Kimber, vice president for intelligence community strategy at Two-Six Technologies; and William Varner, former president of the Mission, Cyber and Intelligence Solutions Group at ManTech.

Tait, also a POC member, joined ManTech in 2018 as president of its Mission Solutions and Services Group, taking charge of support for national security, defense and federal civilian agencies. He oversaw strategic development and deployment of solutions for company customers. Prior to joining ManTech, he spent more than two decades at Accenture in a variety of leadership roles. Tait served in the U.S. Navy for over a decade.
