News Release -- October 20, 2011
FALLS CHURCH, Va., Oct. 20 – CSC (NYSE: CSC) named Kenneth W. Deutsch, Rear Admiral (ret), vice president and lead executive for CSC’s pursuit of the Department of the Navy’s multibillion-dollar Next Generation Enterprise Network (NGEN) contract. Deutsch will report directly to Alan Weakley, president of CSC’s North American Public Sector (NPS) Defense Group. In this role, Deutsch will lead CSC’s NGEN strategy, transition and execution.
“Ken is the key leader of CSC’s NGEN team. His distinguished naval career provides invaluable experience and insight into the Department of the Navy’s enterprise network requirements, while his performance as the leader of CSC’s information dominance business has prepared him well for the task of providing secure, reliable and cost-efficient networks for the Navy and Marine Corps,” said Weakley. “The CSC-led team has a global record of successfully delivering secure, complex IT programs to military and government agencies, and becomes significantly stronger adding Ken to the NGEN team.”
Over the course of his 31-year U.S. Navy career, Deutsch was thoroughly involved in all aspects of naval command and control, communications and enterprise networks. Operationally, he commanded patrol and reconnaissance forces at the squadron, wing, group and task force levels, and was the commander of forces for flying combat missions in support of Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom.
His shore tours included serving as the chief of the communications and computer networks division, J6T, for the Joint Chiefs of Staff and as deputy for resources and requirements in the Space and Information Warfare, Command and Control Division, in the Office of the Chief of Naval Operations (OPNAV) N61R. Deutsch also served three years as director of warfare integration, OPNAV N6F/OPNAV N83, where he was responsible for all Navy command, control, communications and computer investments, and later served as the director of capabilities and resource integration (N8) on the staff of Commander of the U.S. Fleet Forces Command.
Deutsch joined CSC in 2009 as vice president and general manager for information dominance programs within the Defense and Intelligence group, and as CSC’s Department of Defense cyber account executive. For more information about CSC’s pursuit of NGEN, please visit www.csc.com/NGEN.
