We saw several executive moves across the market this week. Here is a round up of several.
One hire of a new chief executive and two other C-level appointments at federal contractors were among the several executive moves we saw in the market this week.

She has also worked in leadership roles at Mercom and Force 3, the latter of which is now Sirius Federal.
The defense technology company promoted nearly two-decade defense market veteran Cari Ossenfort to senior vice president and general manager of the naval electronics business unit.
