Rob Sheen has been named chief growth officer at Redhorse and Noah Klemm has been tapped as chief delivery officer, the San Diego, California-headquartered company said Monday. The new hires are effective immediately and Sheen and Klemm are expected to partner on upcoming initiatives with the chief financial officer and chief operating officer.
The pair of new executives’ work together will entail shaping the direction of the company’s expansion as well as facilitating an organizational responsiveness to clients’ objectives.
In his new role, Sheen will tackle the cultivation, qualification and completion of pipeline needs, in addition to selecting and analyzing potential mergers and acquisitions and presiding over business development endeavors.
Expressing his excitement for Sheen’s appointment, John Zangardi, CEO of Redhorse and a recent Wash100 Award winner, commented, “Rob will bring his deep expertise for integrating capabilities, operational concepts, and technology to drive growth initiatives through business capture and strategic planning.”
Previously, Sheen has worked at a number of notable government- and government contracting-adjacent companies. He began his career as an associate systems engineer at Lockheed Martin and held roles such as programmer analyst lead at CACI and manager of program management at Sapient.
He spent the last 11 years at Novetta, first as program manager of defense intelligence and then as senior vice president of client operations. In the most recent position, Sheen led Novetta’s information exploitation, cyber and mission solutions task forces while spearheading deployment, implementation and operational execution for customers.
As chief delivery officer at Redhorse, Klemm is slated to chart the scope of the company’s long-term growth plans as well as be responsible for the integration of new assets and acquisitions. The executive is additionally poised to administer new technological discoveries and see them through their full life cycle.
Welcoming Klemm, Zangardi shared that the new CDO’s installment “comes as Redhorse looks to better deliver digital modernization and data analysis capabilities for programs and key initiatives across the national security and federal customers.”
Klemm worked at Novetta for over two decades, holding roles such as vice president of operations and, mostly recently, national security commercial director and chief of staff. During the company’s recent merger with Accenture Federal Services, he was in charge of enabling the combination of their respective national security business units. He was also well-known at Novetta for overseeing back-office conglomeration of human resources, benefits, recruiting, security, information technology and project operations.
The two new appointees will work closely with Nancy St. Louis, who was hired as chief operating officer of Redhorse in February.
