Comings and goings

The Bush administration nominated historian Allen Weinstein to be the next head of the National Archives and Records Administration, replacing John Carlin. The Society of American Archivists issued a statement protesting Weinstein's nomination because NARA was established as an independent agency. It asked the Senate Governmental Affairs Committee to put a hold on the nomination until senators can debate the issue. Carlin will remain in the office until Weinstein is confirmed.

Tim Long has joined Optimus Corp. as vice president of customer operations. He will oversee marketing, business development, government relations and corporate communications.

Guy Copeland was appointed vice president of the Information Technology Information Sharing and Analysis Center at Computer Sciences Corp.

Allan Russell was named vice president of worldwide sales and Leighton Quick as director of military programs at Segovia Inc., a leading provider of secure global voice, data and video broadband satellite services.
