“Ms. Hunt’s background in the areas of contract negotiation, contract management and administration, cost control, and regulatory compliance will enhance our contracting capabilities and support ACT I’s continued growth.” ACT I CEO Michael Niggel said in a statement published Tuesday.
She helped establish and led a team of price analysts and negotiators within Lockheed’s aeronautics segment that negotiated subcontracts related to the F-35 production program.
Hunt also supported various affordability initiatives as part of Lockheed’s bid for the initial F/A-22 procurement program and F-35 teammate proposals as well as F-16 and F-35 foreign military sales acquisitions.
After that, she managed a regulatory compliance group that monitored Federal Acquisition Regulation changes, maintained FAR-compliant procurement procedures, performed compliance audit and coordinated with government and third-party audit agencies.
Hunt also led a group of HP contract professionals and supply chain programs when the company divested several businesses, as well as developed the strategy to transform the firm’s internal business relationships into third-party contracts as part of reorganization efforts.
She served three consecutive terms on the executive alumni board of the Texas Christian University’s Neely School of Business, where she earned a master’s degree in international business.
