LMI said Monday Evans will bring her defense industry and acquisition reform experience to her role at NDIA.
NDIA aims to promote the development of weapons systems, technology platforms, training and equipment for military personnel and first responders in support of national security missions and works to facilitate information exchanges between government and industry through policy and technical conferences.
Prior to LMI, Evans worked at the Defense Department as principal director of manufacturing and industrial base policy under the office of defense secretary.
She also served for eight years at unmanned aerial systems maker Insitu, where she held various senior leadership roles including vice president of corporate operations and government relations, general manager of sustainment operations and acting chief financial officer.
Before she joined Insitu in 2006, she held a number of Senior Executive Service posts at DoD for nearly three decades, including assistant deputy undersecretary for defense technology integration, executive chief of the joint defense capabilities study and deputy director of the defense reform initiative.
