The company said Monday it has tapped John Reing to serve as chief human resources officer, and Lori Ellis to work as chief procurement officer.
“As we focus on positively differentiating Peraton across key markets, our ability to attract, develop, and retain the best talent; deliver resilient, scalable, and transformative digital solutions to our customers and employees; and ensure a robust, secure, and sustainable supply chain becomes increasingly more important,” commented Stu Shea, chairman, president and CEO of Peraton.
“Each of these incredible leaders brings a competition-tested set of skills and diverse backgrounds along with proven records of performance that will be critical as we collectively work to achieve our goals,” added Shea, a 2021 Wash100 Award recipient.
As the new CIO, McHale will be responsible for leading Peraton’s digital transformation, providing the advanced technologies and information technology solutions needed to support the strategic and operational objectives of the company. She will also serve as the senior IT advisor to Peraton’s executive leadership team.
McHale most recently served as CIO and chief information security officer at Booz Allen, where she was responsible for delivering secure technology and solutions to enable the business and advance the digital experience for the company’s customers.
Reing served a partner within PwC’s organizational and workforce transformation practice. In his new role as Peraton CHRO, he will be responsible for developing and executing the company’s integrated human resources strategy, including talent acquisition and management, total rewards, leadership development and employee relations.
Ellis, meanwhile, will function as a strategic partner to Peraton’s business sectors and have executive responsibilities for all aspects of the procurement organization, including procure to pay, strategic sourcing and vendor management. Ellis will also act as the executive sponsor of the veterans’ employee resource group of Peraton.
