KBR appoints retired USAF lieutenant general to its board

KBR Inc (KBR) has appointed lieutenant general Wendy Masiello, USAF (Ret) as a member of the KBR board of directors.

General Masiello has been appointed to serve on the audit and the health, safety, security, environment and social responsibility committees of the KBR board.

General Masiello retired as a Three-Star general of the US Air Force (USAF) on July 1, 2017. Prior to her retirement, she served as director of the Defense Contract Management Agency from May 2014 to May 2017.

In this assignment, General Masiello oversaw a $1.4 billion defence agency that provided 12,000 people around the world in oversight of 20,000 contractors performing 340,000 defence and federal contracts valued at $6 trillion.

Her oversight included business system approvals, quality compliance, production capacity and delivery timeliness, and payment authorizations of $500 million each day across the spectrum of defence technologies. General Masiello was also the key advisor to defence leaders regarding corporate performance.

“Wendy has had a very accomplished career in the US Air Force, and we are excited to welcome her to KBR’s board of directors. We believe her strong government experience will be extremely valuable in light of the expansion of KBR’s Government Services business,” said Loren Carroll, chairman of the board of KBR.
