Bill Johnson, the newly named president of Mission Support Alliance at Hanford, will bring 22 years of professional experience to the Department of Energy contractor when he starts work Feb. 2.
Mission Support Alliance provided more information Wednesday about Johnson after announcing Monday that he had been picked to replace Pasco native Frank Armijo as president. Armijo will be moving to Lockheed Martin corporate offices in Maryland.
Mission Support Alliance was awarded a contract valued at $3 billion over a decade in 2008 to provide support services sitewide at Hanford.
Johnson holds a bachelor of business management and a master of business administration from the Rochester Institute of Technology in Rochester, N.Y., plus has completed executive leadership courses at the Lockheed Martin Center for Leadership Excellence, Carnegie Mellon and the University of Maryland.
He most recently has worked as Lockheed Martin vice president of business services in support of PSEG Long Island and Long Island Power Authority.
Before that he served as director for professional services for the corporation, leading a portfolio of contracts in support of Sandia National Laboratories, the U.S. Department of Labor, the Centers for Disease Control, the Environmental Protection Agency, the Department of Defense and other government and commercial clients.
