ManTech International said today co-founder George Pedersen will no longer serve as executive chairman and chairman of the board of directors.

Kevin Phillips, who was named chief executive in 2018, will become chairman. Pedersen will remain a member of the board and serve as chairman emeritus.

Pedersen and Franc Wertheimer founded the company in 1968. In the announcement, Pedersen said now is the right time to “take a less active role.”
