Raytheon I&S Hires Former Air Force IG Sami Said as Global Security VP

Retired Air Force Lt. Gen. Sami Said has joined Raytheon Technologies Intelligence & Space as vice president of global security.

In the newly created role, Said is responsible for executing a secure technology product strategy for the business unit’s security offerings, Raytheon said Monday.

Said will report directly to RI&S President Roy Azevedo, a three-time Wash100 winner and a member of the Potomac Officers Club.

According to Azevedo, Said’s experience will be a key factor in improving product security and improving protections for clients. 

Said most recently served as the inspector general of the Department of the Air Force. According to his Air Force biography, he reported to department leaders on matters related to force readiness, efficiency and the military discipline of airmen.

He also oversaw inspections of the Air Force’s nuclear and conventional forces; oversaw counterintelligence operations; investigated allegations of fraud, waste and abuse; and oversaw complaints resolution programs.

Said is a command pilot with more than 2,200 flight hours in the F-15 Eagle and the F-16 Fighting Falcon. He earned combat flying experience in Operation Northern Watch and Operation Southern Watch.

His major awards and decorations include the Distinguished Service Medal, Defense Superior Service Medal, Legion of Merit, Bronze Star of Merit and Meritorious Service Medal.

Said earned a bachelor’s degree in mathematics from the University of Alabama at Birmingham and a Master of Business Administration degree from Western Governors University. He is also an outstanding graduate of the U.S. Air Force Weapons School F-15 Division.
