Lord David Richards, former head of the United Kingdom Armed Forces, will chair DynCorp International’s UK Advisory Board. DI launched its UK subsidiary earlier this year.
Gen. Richards commented that for more than 60 years, DynCorp International has held an excellent record of supporting the military, particularly that of the United States. “We live in challenging times and DI is an exciting new provider in the UK market,” said Richards. “I look forward to contributing to the Company’s success.”
James Geisler, DynCorp International’s interim chief executive officer, is pleased to have General Richards join DI’s UK Advisory Board. “Gen. Richards’ experience with the UK’s Armed Forces will be invaluable to DI’s future business in the region,” said Geisler.
The new Board also includes former Maj. Gen. Ian Copeland, DI’s UK managing director, and adviser, former Maj. Gen. Tim Tyler. The Board’s role will focus on the UK’s Armed Forces, ensuring DI’s worldwide experience fully focuses on the UK’s particular requirements and circumstances.
DynCorp International (UK) capabilities include aviation, maintenance, logistics, training, intelligence and operational-support solutions. DI has provided services to the UK Ministry of Defence for more than 10 years. Services include facilities management; maintenance, repair and overhaul; logistics and site operation; and training and mentoring.
