President and CEO
Global Defense Technology and Systems

John Hillen has been the prime mover behind Global Defense Technology and Systems’ transformation into a collaborative partner in tackling the nation’s most critical counterterrorism and cybersecurity priorities.

Away from the office, Hillen’s commitment to the IT industry is exemplified by his participation on numerous advisory committees and boards, including the Chief of Naval Operations Executive Panel and the Executive Committee and Board of Directors of the Professional Services Council.
