FALLS CHURCH, Va., Oct. 4 – CSC (NYSE: CSC) named Alan Weakley president of its North American Public Sector (NPS) Defense Group, the company’s primary organization for enterprise solutions, information technology services, mission support and training and range operations for the U.S. Department of Defense. In this role, Weakley will lead the strategic direction, planning and execution of the group’s worldwide presence and growth. He will report to James W. Sheaffer, president of NPS.
Employing more than 14,000 people, the Defense Group was created from CSC’s former Defense/Intel and Applied Technologies (ATG) units, which were led by the recently retired Austin Yerks and Alan Weakley, respectively.
“This realignment reflects CSC’s commitment to deliver an integrated approach to the defense market,” said Sheaffer. “The fully integrated Defense Group will bring a significant set of synergies, efficiencies and core offerings that will improve service delivery to our military customers. Alan’s leadership is invaluable in this mission. He has a proven track record of increasing service quality and meeting customer missions while reducing overall operating costs that will help CSC deliver best value to our clients at a critical time.”
Prior to this role, Weakley was the president of ATG. With over 10,000 employees in over 40 locations, ATG has been a recognized leader in mission support for military range operations, base infrastructure operations and aviation services. In this role, Weakley most notably led the development of the VISION tool set, a highly valued asset to CSC and its client base.
Before joining CSC, Weakley was employed by the URS Corporation’s EG&G Division for over 23 years as the Engineering and Technology Services Group (ETS) vice president and general manager. Comprising 4,000 employees in 15 major locations, ETS provides operations and maintenance, engineering, logistics and training support to the Department of Defense, NASA, DOE and the Department of Homeland Security through more than 200 contracts nationwide.
During his 23 years of EG&G service, Weakley served as the director of the Defense Systems and Services Strategic Business Unit; director of the Command, Control and Electronics Strategic Business Element; director of the Maritime Systems and Fleet Support Group; and manager of Dahlgren Operations. At the beginning of his EG&G career, Weakley supported the nuclear safety certification of the submarine that launched the TOMAHAWK missile. Prior to joining EG&G, he served in the U.S. Navy aboard two nuclear fast attack submarines.
