MCLEAN, Va., Jan. 14 (UPI) -- Science Applications International Corp. says it's reorganizing several departments as part of its new centralized corporate structure.
Effective Feb. 1, the company's information technology, communications and corporate development functions become "direct reports," the company said. Functional responsibilities such as real estate, contracts, procurement, shared services, government affairs and business development operations -- previously held by Tom Baybrook, executive vice president and chief administration and operations officer -- will be reassigned to other SAIC executives.
Baybrook "will retire from SAIC to pursue other interests," the company said.
"This realignment is a continuation of our efforts to streamline operations and improve market competitiveness," SAIC Chief Executive Officer Tony Monaco said. "Elevating the three functions to the executive leadership team also is designed to enable SAIC to be more proactive and responsive to market requirements and opportunities.
"We thank Tom [Baybrook] for his 48 years of service to both the country and the industry, including his leadership and dedication displayed in the company's recently completed spin-off transaction. We wish him well in his future endeavors."
