Bob Ritchie, who began his career as a tech lead for Science Applications International Corp., has returned to the company as head of its software practice.
He succeeds the retiring Kevin Ikeda and will oversee software, strategy, investment, development, integration and migration efforts in his new position, SAIC said Monday.
Josh Jackson, executive vice president and general manager of SAIC's solutions and technology group, said Ritchie will support the firm's growth efforts in the application development and modernization areas as the company seeks to incorporate commercial approaches into its software practice.
Ritchie previously served as director of software engineering at Capital One and helped migrate the financial services company's distributed apps to Amazon Web Services-built cloud platform. He holds eight AWS certifications.
