UMS Division Leadership
I’ve been at Metron for over 25 years starting out as a programmer after getting a Masters in Computer Science from UVA, then becoming an analyst focused on mine countermeasures analysis and simulation, graduating to being project manager of our LDUUV project, and then becoming the VP of the UMS Division. I am amazed at the variety of projects I’ve worked on and the amazingly smart people I’ve had the privilege to work with.
