Robbins-Gioia, a provider of program management services, has named John Marselle chief executive officer.
A member of Robbins-Gioia’s board of directors, Marselle joins the company from Sun Microsystems, where he led the government division. Earlier in his career at Sun, Marselle was vice president of the Americas, the company’s largest operating unit with 5,000 employees and revenues of about $10 billion. He was also president of Sun Federal, a wholly owned subsidiary of Sun, from 1992 to 1998.
Marselle will use his 27 years of technology and business experience to deepen the company’s foothold in commercial markets, including the financial services, manufacturing and technology industries.
“I’m thrilled to be a part of the company’s continued growth and expansion as it brings excellence in execution and a focus on results to current and future clients in both the public and private sectors,” he said.
“I look forward to collaborating with John as we take the company to the next level,” said Mike Sledge, Robbins-Gioia’s president and chief operation officer. “It’s a tribute to the company that we could attract someone with John’s credentials, passion and enthusiasm for management excellence.”
Marselle holds numerous awards for his work with the federal government, including a Federal 100 award from Federal Computer Week.
