GovernmentCIO has appointed Steve Hughes as chief financial officer and Gina Gallagher as chief growth officer.
CEO Brian Moran said that the new executives will play a key role in the information technology and media research firm’s efforts to transform government IT.
“We are pleased to have a world-class CFO like Steve join the company and are thrilled to have Gina leading our growth, business development and capture teams,” Moran said. “Steve’s operational experience and financial expertise, along with Gina’s business strategy and market experience in the federal space, will help us deliver value to our customers as we continue our rapid growth.”
Hughes has previously served as CFO at Schafer Corporation and SRA International. Hughes had a 28-year career at SRA International, joining as a systems analyst and being promoted to CFO in 1999. He worked for SRA during a period when the company’s revenues grew from less than $1 million to $1.5 billion, GovernmentCIO said. As CFO, Hughes took SRA International public in 2002, and oversaw eight acquisitions. Hughes most recently served three years as executive vice president and CFO at Schafer Corporation, until it was acquired by Belcan in 2017.
Gallagher, former president at AOC Key Solutions, has more than 30 years of business strategy, development and market experience in the federal sector, GovernmentCIO said. She has held leadership and senior executive management positions with both large system integrators and small companies, including EDS/HP (DXC), DynCorp (CRSA), Titan (L3), LEADS Corporation, Satyam Computer Services Limited and Systems Made Simple.
