Transitioning from the position of senior vice president of financial operations, which he started in February, Muse will now preside over Iron Bow’s finance, accounting, order operations and facilities functions, in addition to spearheading all mergers and acquisitions, the Herndon, Virginia-based company said Monday.
Rene LaVigne, CEO of Iron Bow and a Wash100 Award recipient, praised Muse’s six months of work with the company and anticipates an ongoing, fruitful collaboration with the newly appointed CFO in the future, through what he foresees as opportunities for growth.
Muse has overseen financial efforts as a CFO at three prior companies: Sevatec, FCI Enterprises and Solerity. All three companies had an IT element to their offerings and his roles were focused on the economic aspect of the delivery of these services to government customers.
The executive is a certified public accountant as well as a certified financial analyst and has leveraged this dual expertise performing investment banking work at Stifel Financial Corporation for a decade in addition to time spent at Goldman Sachs.
According to Muse, the “dynamic” nature of Iron Bow and its “unique position to provide government and commercial customers with the support they need most” is what drew him to the organization.
“I look forward to continued partnership with the rest of the leadership team and our primary shareholders at HIG to build upon the company’s solid foundation and help lead the business through this exciting period of growth,” Muse added.
Muse’s appointment follows Iron Bow’s June installment of former Commonwealth of Virginia chief information officer Nelson Moe as sales strategy principal for the company’s SLED business unit and their January hire of Sean Robertson as senior vice president of sales operations.
