Steven Griffin, formerly senior director of operations and business development within Chicago Bridge and Iron’s federal services division, has joined Vencore as a senior vice president and program manager.
Vencore said Tuesday Griffin will lead the company’s work to help NASA develop technologies and systems the agency will use to process space launch vehicles, spacecraft and payloads on the ground at Kennedy Space Center in Florida.
The company is the prime contractor for NASA’s Engineering Services Contract program and employs more than 860 people at Kennedy that work to help the space agency in its efforts toward future space exploration initiatives.
“Steve has the leadership skills and intimate customer knowledge to lead our team and deliver an unmatched breadth and depth of expertise to NASA,” said Mac Curtis, president and CEO of Vencore.
Griffin’s career includes time at CSR (a joint venture of PAE and Raytheon), Space Coast Launch Services (a joint venture of CSC and CB&I), the Department of Homeland Security, Boeing, Astrotech Space Operations and McDonnell Douglas Astronautics.
He also spent five years with the U.S. Army.
