Federal government contractor Saalex Corp. announced on Monday changes to its executive leadership.
Travis Mack, who had been chief executive and president of the Camarillo company, has been named as chief executive and chairman. Taking over as president is Robert Bezduch, previously the director of program operations. And becoming executive vice president and chief financial officer is Randy Wheeler, who had been just a vice president and chief financial officer.
The changes were made to ensure Saalex meets the increased management demands it is experiencing with its tremendous growth. Last week, the company announced it acquired NetSimco, significantly expanding the size of the organization. Saalex now has close to 700 employees in offices around the world, the company said in a release.
Saalex is growing at an incredible pace, and it is paramount it grows its executive leadership team along with it, Mack said.
“I have tremendous confidence in promoting Robert to president of Saalex, as he is uniquely skilled in dealing with both people, technical and programmatic matters,” Mack said in a statement. “He will concentrate on the day-to-day management needs of the company, which will enable Randy and I to allocate more time to strategic and tactical growth planning.”
“I am very excited and thankful for this opportunity and appreciate Travis entrusting and believing in me to run this organization,” Bezduch added in a statement. “I’ve loved this company from the first day I was hired on, because of the people and corporate culture.”
Bezduch has been employed by Saalex for five years and has nearly 30 years of program management experience and more than 30 years of combined experience as an active duty Army intelligence officer and federal contractor. Wheeler, who has been instrumental in the company’s growth, has guided the company’s financial needs since 2004, according to the Saalex release.
