Recently named among ExecutiveBiz’s Top 20 People to Watch in 2010, Wood Parker serves as President and Chief Executive Officer of TASC. Wood Parker heads the first company to become independent and non-conflicted that was formerly part of a major prime contractor (Northrop Grumman). TASC provides solutions and services to help solve security threats and challenges for a variety of government clients including the intelligence community and the Department of Defense.
Following the closing announcement on December 18, 2009, Parker said “Today, we begin a new and exciting chapter in our long history. TASC has an exceptional foundation of integrity, service, and commitment to our customers. As an independent company, we are well positioned for continued growth. We will continue supporting our existing customers, expand into new markets, and broaden our portfolio without burdening our customers with OCI constraints and restrictions.”
Parker is poised to oversee the expansion of TASC, through the hiring of new employees and pursuing further government contracts.
Before joining TASC, Parker spent 20 years serving in the US Navy. He also was a managing partner PricewaterhouseCoopers’ Washington consulting firm.
