Exiger, a compliance and risk management company, said this month it has named Ellen Lord strategic senior adviser and chair of its advisory board.
"Lord will advise Exiger's senior leadership on securing the U.S. industrial base by drawing on her experience overseeing defense programs and protecting critical infrastructure in both private sector and government executive-level positions," the company said. Her "expertise will empower Exiger to continue to deliver cutting-edge solutions to clients across companies and government agencies that are tackling the increasingly complex threat landscape of third-party and supply chain risk."
Lord previously served as the Pentagon acquisition chief. Before taking on that role, she was chief executive of Textron Systems.
