Applied Insight (AI) has appointed Dede Dascalu as chief executive officer (CEO) to succeed John Hynes who will assume the role of executive chairman to promote technology innovation, the company announced on Wednesday.

 “We’ve developed a unique portfolio of groundbreaking technologies, strengthened our team of highly skilled engineers and cemented our trusted relationships at the heart of the national security community. Now that we’re strongly united as one team, it’s the right time to accelerate our strategy to bring our mission-focused technologies to a wider customer community, said Hynes.

Prior to joining the board, Hynes supervised strategic counsel to the leadership team and supported outreach with senior customers and industry partners.

Hynes, a former naval aviator, has been a senior leader with some of the industry’s preeminent companies. He ran ManTech’s security and mission assurance organization, was General Manager of SAIC’s mission support business, and senior vice president of TASC’s defense and civil group before being appointed as chief operations officer (COO) and CEO.

Following TASC’s acquisition by Engility, Hynes became president and COO of the combined business. He is highly experienced in mergers and acquisitions and has led multiple transactions during his career, and supervised the successful integration of acquired companies.

Dascalu brings experience in emerging technologies to his new position. As CEO, Dascalu leads AI’s executive team and drives our strategies for growth and innovation. He has been recognized in the national security community as a leading cloud expert. Dascalu joined AI through its 2018 acquisition of cloud infrastructure business Stratus Solutions, which he led to great success as CEO.

As AI’s CTO, Dascalu led the development and rollout of the company’s award-winning cloud management technology, Altitude, which today supports thousands of cloud users across government and industry. He also established aiLabs, the company’s dedicated R&D program, which continues to deliver new and unique solutions to complex customer technology challenges.

“I feel honored to be leading such a talented team at AI. With our collective expertise in cloud, analytics, cyber and mission IT, we’re uniquely placed to support customers in those areas of technology with the greatest potential for gaining true mission advantage,” said Dascalu.
