Deltek adds chairman to Kevin Parker's titles

Deltek Systems, a provider of enterprise management software, announced that its board of directors has unanimously elected company president and chief executive officer Kevin Parker to the additional post of chairman, according to a company announcement.

Parker will succeed company co-founder Ken deLaski, who retired from the board April 26. DeLaski served as president and CEO of Deltek from 1996 to 2005. Parker joined the company from PeopleSoft in 2005.

The board also picked Joseph Kampf, CEO of Anteon International, as a new member of the board. Kampf led Anteon in one of 2002’s most successful initial public offerings and has presided over significant revenue growth -- from $109 million to $1.49 billion -- during the past nine years.

Kathleen deLaski, sister of Ken deLaski and president of the Sallie Mae Fund, also became a new board member. The board voted unanimously to make Alok Singh, managing director at the private equity firm New Mountain Capital, lead director of the Deltek board. Singh has been a member of Deltek’s board of directors since April 2005.
