CSC Names Michael Maier Vice President of Air Force Range Programs
News Release -- October 17, 2011
FALLS CHURCH, Va., Oct. 17 – CSC (NYSE: CSC) named Michael W. Maier vice president of air force range programs for its North American Public Sector (NPS). In this role, Maier will lead range technical service contracts and CSC’s pursuit of the U.S. Air Force’s multibillion-dollar Launch and Test Range System (LTRS) Integrated Support Contract (LISC) via InSpace 21® — a CSC and Honeywell joint venture.
Prior to this role, Maier was vice president and general manager of CSC joint venture CSR, where he directed 85 eastern range launch campaigns, achieved four consecutive 100-percent award fee scores and led CSC’s $816 million win of the 10-year Eastern Range Technical Services contract in 2007. He has served the U.S. Air Force and the space community in a series of significant technical and management positions since 1988.
“Mike is a recognized leader maintaining and improving air and space range capabilities for the U.S. Air Force,” said Alan Weakley, president of CSC North American Public Sector’s Defense Group. “As one of the world’s most experienced range operations and maintenance providers, CSC brings unique management and technical capabilities. His newly created position reflects CSC’s continued commitment to the space launch and test range mission.”
In pursuing LISC, Maier will serve as president and program manager of InSpace 21®, a joint venture dedicated to reducing the total cost of ownership of the U.S. Air Force launch and test range system while maintaining the outstanding mission success record of the eastern and western ranges. LISC consolidates the existing operations and maintenance efforts at the eastern and western ranges and the engineering and sustainment work of the Space and Missile Systems Center into a single contract.
Reflecting CSC’s deep bench of leadership experience in this arena, Steve Griffin will replace Maier as general manager of CSR — ensuring continued service and client satisfaction throughout the transition. Griffin was the president of Space Coast Launch Services (SCLS) and program manager for the Launch Operations Support Contract since 2009. He joined CSC in 2005 as manager of continuous improvement at CSR. Prior to CSC, Griffin held key positions in the Central Florida space launch industry at McDonnell Douglas, Astrotech Space Operations and the Boeing Company, and also served as the chief engineer for the Transportation Security Administration at the Orlando International Airport.
David L. Rueh, former senior manager of Mission Support for SCLS, will assume Griffin’s position. Rueh joined CSC in May 2005, leading key efforts during the transition and startup of the Launch Operations Support Contract under SCLS. He has progressively increased his leadership roles since joining the Launch Operations Support Contract in 1996.
