As first covered on GovCon Wire in March, Alex Heidt, a former senior vice president at Harris Corp., now serves as Alion Science and Technology Corp. as senior vice president and manager of its acquisition programs management group.
The former U.S. Marine will lead Alion’s expert program, acquisition, services and engineering support for the U.S. Navy, Coast Guard, government and commercial customers, Alion said March 25.
Heidt is a 25-year government and commercial market veteran, Alion says.
Scott Fry, Alion senior vice president and manager for engineering and integration solutions, said Heidt will seek to help the company deliver extensive services to meet customer requirements.
Recently, Heidt managed Harris’ Air Force IT services unit before becoming SVP for business development.
He also served several budgetary and business development roles at Lockheed Martin, Orbital Sciences Corp. and E-Systems Corp.
