Altamira makes two executive hires

On July 22, McLean, VA-based Altamira Technologies Corporation announced the addition of two industry leaders to help manage and fuel the growth and diversification of the business.

Caroline McConnell has joined as the chief human capital officer.  For over a dozen years, McConnell provided executive HR leadership for large business segments of SAIC prior to taking a position as CHRO for Engineering Solutions & Products LLC (ESP), a mid-sized government contractor that completed a successful exit at the end of 2019.  McConnell will focus on building programs that attract, develop and retain top high-end technical talent.

“Caroline’s experience and skills as a certified trainer and in strategic workforce planning make her an ideal fit for Altamira as we build on our award winning culture of people-first excellence,” said Altamira CEO Ted Davies.

Jason Siminski has joined as VP, business development. Siminski will focus on expanding Altamira’s footprint in components of the DoD and IC around Altamira’s core offerings in advanced analytics and engineering.  He is a national security leader with 23 years of experience across the National Defense portfolio as an active duty military officer, senior government civilian, and industry executive including time as a leader at the Defense Threat Reduction Agency and at SAIC.

Altamira COO Blaine Worthington said, “We have a growing pipeline of opportunities to prosecute, and we are excited to add Jason’s proven talent to our team.”
