In his new role, Serow will leverage his 25 years of experience in military and operational leadership to oversee business development and contract execution for the Lincoln, Nebraska-based defense technology company. His work will also focus on scaling Kana Systems’ infrastructure to manage growth.
“Chris knows firsthand the military’s technology pain points; he has the operational expertise to lead Kana Systems as we partner with the U.S. government in its digital transformation goals,” said Mailani Veney, CEO of Kana Systems.
Veney added that Serow’s appointment marks a “huge win” for the company and its military customers.
Prior to joining Kana Systems, Serow served as chief of plans support for the U.S. Strategic Command, where he developed concepts and requirements for Conventional-Nuclear Integration and led the integration of Nuclear Command, Control and Communications with the Department of Defense’s Joint All-Domain Command and Control initiative.
During his military career, Serow held multiple leadership roles including base commanding officer at the Naval Support Activity in Panama City, Florida. Additionally, Serow served as a maritime and aviation operations officer directing anti-submarine warfare efforts in the Indo-Pacific region for the U.S. Navy’s 7th Fleet.
