“The officers and I believe that by further elevating these individuals in our leadership ranks, LMI remains well-positioned for continued growth and success,” LMI President and CEO Nelson M. Ford said.
The announced promotions include a new Vice President and four new Program Directors.
• Bill Ledder was named Vice President of LMI’s Logistics Technology Division. Ledder, who has been with LMI for 25 years, will oversee two program directorates:
• Louise Campanale was named Program Director of a new group in Resource Management, which will pursue growth opportunities in the areas of acquisition, budgeting and accounting strategy. Campanale recently joined LMI following an outstanding career at Booz Allen Hamilton, and has more than 25 years experience working with government and corporate business entities on budgeting, accounting, financial management, human resources, shared services, and internal audit challenges.
• Bill Crowder was named Program Director for the Logistics Services Group. Crowder joined LMI in 1993, most recently serving as Director of the Logistics Services Group.
• Mark Hendon was named Program Director of the newly formed Logistics Systems Group. Hendon joined LMI following a distinguished, 26-year career in the U.S. Army, and supported the development of Army Logistics Systems in an ERP environment at Fort Belvoir and several locations in and around Fort Lee in Petersburg, Va., as a Program Manager.
• Dave Oaks was named Program Director for the Maintenance and Readiness Management Group. Oaks, a graduate of the U.S. Military Academy, joined LMI from the RAND Arroyo Center, where he served as the Center’s liaison to the Army Staff. Oaks replaces Dennis Wightman, who stepped down following a remarkable, 22-year career in which he led the group to world class status and unparalleled successes.
“Much of LMI’s hard-earned reputation can be directly traced to the work that Dennis Wightman did while Program Director for the Maintenance and Readiness Management Group,” Ford said. “His retirement leaves some large shoes to fill, and we are confident that Dave can continue this level of excellence.”
