ManTech International Corp. has promoted a new president for its Mission, Cyber & Intelligence Solutions group, tapping Richard Wagner to lead the company’s work in support of the U.S. intelligence community.
Wagner has been the group’s executive vice president and chief operating since 2016, and is responsible for leading day-to-day operations. He will take the post of president on Jan. 1, 2018, following the retirement of Bill Varner, who joined ManTech as president of the MCIS Group in 2009.
ManTech Chairman and CEO George Pederson said the company was confident Wagner will take the group to “the next level of performance.”
“We thank Bill Varner for his many years’ service in advancing ManTech’s reputation as the premier provider of technology solutions for the nation’s most important customers – government agencies charged with safeguarding national and homeland security,” Pedersen said in a statement. “Putting Rick Wagner at the helm of MCIS represents a natural progression for a leader who has consistently surpassed expectations.”
Wagner previously led ManTech’s Advanced Technology Solutions business, guiding its success in cyber, mission IT and intelligence operations, ManTech said. Before joining ManTech, Wagner was chief strategy officer at TASC Inc., playing a key role in that company’s merger with Engility Holdings Inc. Wagner spent 16 years at TASC, and has also held management positions at Lockheed Martin and Raytheon, and worked as a software engineer and project manager for the Naval Surface Warfare Center.
“It is an honor to take on this new responsibility, especially within a company whose mission I deeply respect,” Wagner said. “Protecting this great country of ours is a passion at ManTech and I look forward to continuing to work with the outstanding people of MCIS to provide the best services and solutions to our customers’ missions.”
