Clarity Innovations adds Kelli Usé-Hull as growth SVP

On April 29, Columbia, MD-based Clarity Innovations, a provider of advanced data and cyber analytics services and software to the U.S. national security community, announced that it has named Kelli Usé-Hull senior vice president of growth, a newly created senior leadership role.

Usé-Hull brings 15 years of marketing and business development experience in the national security community to this position, with the last nine years supporting the Intelligence Community and special operations. Usé-Hull comes to Clarity from Slingshot Aerospace, where she was vice president of business development.

Wes Daniels, co-founder and CEO of Clarity, said, “Kelli brings proven business development experience and deep knowledge of the national security sector to this role. Investing in talented people like Kelli is central to our innovation and growth plans. Current and future customers will benefit from Kelli’s ability to understand and help achieve their business and mission goals.”

Usé-Hull said, “This is a rare opportunity to join a thriving firm that has remarkable growth potential. I’ve admired Clarity for years and am excited and humbled by this opportunity to join Wes’s team and lead the firm’s growth strategy. Heightened national security risks make Clarity’s advanced data and cyber analytics services and software ever more critical to the U.S. national security community.”

Founded in 2012, Clarity elevates warfighter effectiveness by blending national security mission expertise with commercial innovation and by helping the government redefine its relationship to technology. Clarity’s mission is to connect people to the technology and tradecraft necessary to make our country, and the world, a better, safer place.

In 2015, Usé-Hull became a client sales executive at HP (HPE/DXC Technology and eventually Perspecta through acquisition) where she first began supporting the IC and the combatant commands, winning new business at NORAD/NORTHCOM and for national intelligence customers.

She oversaw growth for Avantus Federal’s Intelligence Community business, focusing on net-new growth, identifying potential acquisition targets, and supported the integration of 6 acquisitions (Data Works, Operational Intelligence, Lucid Perspectives, MissionTech Solutions, Occam’s Razor Technologies, and Far Ridgeline Engagements) into the enterprise from 2020-2022. QinetiQ-US acquired Avantus Federal for $590M in November 2022.
