Kirkland Donald, former president and CEO of Systems Planning and Analysis, and Kilovolt Consulting President Suzanne Vautrinot have joined the board of directors at Battelle.
“They bring a wealth of experience and deep customer expertise that can contribute greatly to our mission,” Battelle President and CEO Jeff Wadsworth said in a statement released Thursday.
Before he joined the private sector, Donald led multiple commands at the U.S. Navy, directed the Naval Nuclear Propulsion program and retired from military service as a four-star admiral.
He received three Distinguished Service Medals during his career at the Navy.
Vautrinot is a retired U.S. Air Force major general and commanded an organization that helps secure a Defense Department-run global network infrastructure.
She served at the military branch for 31 years and is a recipient of Distinguished Service and Defense Superior Service Medals.
She is also a national security fellow at Harvard University’s John F. Kennedy School of Government.
