Leading U.S. government services provider Perspecta Inc (NYSE: PRSP) announced it has appointed Perspecta’s president and chief executive officer (CEO) Mac Curtis as chairman of its board of directors, effective August 5, 2020 — which is also the date of the 2020 annual meeting of shareholders.

“On behalf of Perspecta and the board, I want to thank Mike Lawrie for his leadership and guidance over the past two years,” said Curtis. “Mike’s experience and perspective helped accelerate Perspecta’s integration and growth as a leading U.S. government services provider. I look forward to working with the board as we continue to effectively execute our strategy and grow the business while driving value for employees, customers, and shareholders.”

Mike Lawrie — who has served as Perspecta’s chairman since its launch in 2018 — announced his retirement from the board effective at the end of his current term on August 5, 2020. And Philip Nolan, the current lead independent director, will continue to serve in this role following Lawrie’s retirement.

“As president and CEO of Perspecta, Mac has delivered solid results, making Perspecta a leading U.S. government IT services provider focused on mission-critical outcomes,” added Lawrie. “Mac has led Perspecta for very successful years, executing a seamless integration of the legacy companies, enhancing Perspecta’s innovative solutions and services and developing a talented workforce. Mac’s deep industry knowledge, executive management skills, and strategic and tactical capabilities make him ideally suited to lead Perspecta’s continued growth as chairman.”

On June 1, 2020, Perspecta had celebrated its two year anniversary as an independent publicly-traded company. And Curtis has served as president and CEO of Perspecta since its launch in 2018. 

Perspecta has a diverse set of capabilities to U.S. government customers in defense, intelligence, civilian, health care and state and local markets. And the company has over 270+ issued, licensed and pending patents.

And with offerings in mission services, digital transformation and enterprise operations, the company’s team of 14,000 engineers, analysts, investigators and architects work tirelessly to not only execute the mission, but also build and support the backbone that enables it.
