Today, DynCorp International has announced that George Krivo has taken over the role of Chief Executive Officer, effective immediately. Below is a copy of his internal company announcement.
As you may have heard, I have been named chief executive officer of DynCorp International (DI), effective immediately. I am honored to step into this new role after nine years with DI and I look forward to leading the company on our current path of continued growth and operational excellence.
On Monday, we will host an internal conference call to discuss some of the goals we have for DI moving forward, but first I want to thank Lou Von Thaer for his leadership over the last two years – a timeframe during which this company returned to growth. He was recruited to serve as CEO of Battelle, a $4.8 billion charitable trust with a storied history of innovation and technology advances. This is an opportunity that takes him back to his technology and engineering roots and we wish him well as he takes the next step in his career.
But I need to thank all of you as well. Our recent successes did not happen by coincidence. We have all worked hard to ensure the satisfaction of our customers while identifying and securing important business development opportunities. If you look at our current initiatives, each of you has something to be proud of. Our business development team is winning, our CPARs are validating DI’s operational excellence, and our profits are up because we are consistently improving program productivity.
These successes show that we are doing things right. And as CEO, I plan to continue on this path.
I hope that you will be able to join the call on Monday, details for which will be sent in a separate announcement.
