Christian Marrone, external relations senior vice president and chief of staff at CSRA, has been named by the George Washington University as a senior fellow at its Center for Cyber and Homeland Security for a two-year term that began this month.
Marrone will provide counsel and contribute to the center's policy task forces and projects; serve as speaker for conferences and events; produce policy reports, opinion pieces and blog posts; and engage news media and stakeholders, CSRA said Wednesday.
CCHS conducts research and analysis on cybersecurity, homeland security and counterterrorism in aid of policymaking.
“[Marrone] will bring a valuable perspective to this role, particularly how next-gen technological solutions and public-private collaboration can advance security,” said CSRA President and CEO Larry Prior.
Marrone, who assumed his SVP role at CSRA in June, is in charge of services addressing the U.S. government's critical policy issues as well as strategies to strengthen the relationship between the company and the government.
He also oversees the company's government relations, marketing and communications, security, change management and program excellence functions as the chief of staff and is a member of the Department of Homeland Security's advisory council and the Aspen Homeland Security Forum.
He previously worked in the public sector as chief of staff to then DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson and as special assistant to then Defense Department Secretary Robert Gates.
