George Washington University's School of Engineering and Applied Science has inducted Gene Colabatistto, a group president at CAE, and LGS Innovations CEO Kevin Kelly into the GWU Engineering Hall of Fame.
Colabatistto, Kelly and five other industry and government leaders were recognized in an Oct. 22 ceremony for their contributions in the technology, management and engineering fields.
Colabatistto, a 25-year defense sector veteran, leads CAE’s defense and security group and that segment comprises half of the Montreal-based aerospace and training services contractor’s total revenue, the company says.
Kelly has been with LGS Innovations for 17 years and became CEO of the defense and intelligence technology company in June 2012.
This year’s Hall of Fame class also includes:
- Christopher Scolese, director of NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center
- Donald Blount, founder of marine engineering design company Donald L. Blount & Associates
- Elizabeth D'Andrea, a senior scientist and program manager at the Office of Naval Research
- Patrick Marolda, chief operating officer of Rolls-Royce’s defense division
- Ronald Luman, chief of staff at Johns Hopkins University’s Applied Physics Laboratory
