PAE Marks 60-Year Anniversary; John Heller Comments

PAEPAE marked its 60th anniversary of doing business last week with an event in Arlington, Virginia, that was attended by several company executives, government officials and trade group representatives.

“We’re proud of our legacy of partnering with government customers, producing results in the most challenging places, and above all, helping our customers succeed in their missions,” John Heller, PAE CEO, said Monday.

The company showed a video during its anniversary celebration to commemorate how the company grew from a small family-owned business founded in 1955 to a global company that provides mission support services in the public sector.

PAE also honored Landis Hicks, head of PAE’s Southeast Asian business and a 48-year company veteran, at the event.

The company pledged to support the Vanderbilt University’s Landis Wayne and Nhung Hicks Scholarship program for engineering students in recognition of Hicks’ service at the company.
