Before he came to General Dynamics, Newman served as a business development specialist at BTG from 1995 to 1998. Before that, he was a program support specialist at Bell Atlantic, where he was assigned to the Advanced Technology Demonstration Network.

Newman earned a bachelor’s degree in political science from Marymount University in 1994.

“With his exemplary track record building business in the defense intelligence community, Tom Newman gives ConceptSolutions a decisive edge in winning new and expanding our existing DOD contracts,” Phong Mai, president and chief executive officer, ConceptSolutions, said in the statement. “Mr. Newman significantly strengthens our efforts in the public sector.”
