Peraton said today David Myers, formerly chief executive of DataPath, will serve as president of its communications sector, starting Feb. 20.

"In this role, Myers will lead the sector's strategy development and execution, and its focus on continued program performance and profitable growth," Peraton said. "The Communications sector provides mission-critical, advanced communications services to Peraton's intelligence, defense, civil and commercial customers. Additionally, the sector will be responsible for leading the company's continued growth in the government satellite and terrestrial communications markets."

Myers was both president and CEO at DataPath, a spin-out from Rockwell Collins. He has also held executive roles at ITC Global, Harris CapRock Communications and Spacenet, the U.S. subsidiary of Gilat Satellite Networks, Peraton said.

The contractor last month said it was reorganizing from six business groups into four -- two sectors and two business units.
