-- This week, the biggest news GovCon Wire covered was the announcement that John Jumper will retire from his role as CEO and chairman of Reston, Va.-based Leidos.
Jumper will continue to serve as chairman of the board at Leidos, a role he has held since 2012.
The former Air Force chief of staff led the split of SAIC into two separate companies when he was named CEO of SAIC two years ago.
“We look forward to his continued service on our board of directors and his assistance in an orderly transition to a new CEO, as we implement the strategy being developed by the management team and the board of directors,” said Lawrence Nussdorf, lead director at Leidos.
Jumper previously received the Defense Distinguished Service Medal and the Air Force Distinguished Service Medal in his 39-year Air Force career.
