David Streett named Valkyrie CEO
On January 18, the board of directors of Valkyrie Enterprises, LLC, an engineering, technology, and operational solutions company based in Virginia Beach, VA, announced that David Streett, president and chief operating officer, has been named as the company’s chief executive officer, assuming the role from the founder and current CEO, Gary Lisota.
“Valkyrie’s established success and strategic positioning for key sector growth will be further enhanced by David Streett’s leadership and keen knowledge of our industry and our customer’s requirements,” said Thomas Campbell, chairman of Valkyrie and founder and managing partner of DC Capital Partners. “I could not be more pleased to have Dave at the helm.”
Streett’s elevation comes as part of a strategic reorganization of the company in conjunction with the recent merger with Hill Technical Solutions and the establishment of two business units, (i) Mission Solutions and (ii) Sustainment and Modernization, which will be led by industry veterans Mike Anderson and Dale Hopper, respectively.
“This expansion of our capabilities and enhanced organization structure are indicative of our continuing focus on meeting our customers’ constantly changing requirements,” said Campbell. “The solutions that Valkyrie provides to its defense and government agency customers are now enhanced by additional capabilities that will allow the company to take on more complex defense, intelligence and critical infrastructure challenges.
“I am honored to have the opportunity to lead Valkyrie Enterprises.” Streett said, “I have had a tremendous mentor in Gary Lisota, and we have an amazing group of men and women who provide a wide range of solutions for our customers. The long history of that effort will remain our focus as we move forward. Our partnership with DC Capital Partners has increased our potential and our ability to build upon our past success. Our goal is to provide additional solutions to our customers and greater opportunities for our employees.”
Streett began his career serving in the U.S. Navy nuclear power program, in the submarine service. After his service, he started his civilian career at Newport News Shipbuilding (NNS) in 1989, serving in positions of increasing responsibility until he joined Valkyrie in 2010.
