Berney McVey has been appointed vice president and chief information officer for Information Systems at Northrop Grumman. Previously he served as vice president and CFO for the company’s former Information Technology sector. That IT sector recently merged with the Mission Systems sector and is now Information Systems, headed by Linda Mills.
In 2008 ExecutiveBiz had listed McVey as one of ten finance executives that readers should definitely know about and his move from CFO to CIO is evidence of his keen business intellect. In his new position McVey will have responsibility for the company’s IT Solutions shared service organization. He served as the IT sector’s controller and has extensive experience in program financial management, business operations, and international, commercial and government contracting. Since joining Northrop Grumman in 1978, McVey has steadily risen up through the business management ranks of the company and is highly regarded by colleagues.
