SparkCognition has named Logan Jones general manager of its new government systems business, the company said this week.

He was vice president of Boeing HorizonX, the innovation arm of Boeing, which is an investor in SparkCognition.

SparkCognition rolled out SparkCognition Government Systems last month. The business is operating as a wholly owned subsidiary.

The company announced a high-powered roster of former government officials would serve on the government systems unit's board of directors. Among them are retired Gen. John Allen; Lisa Disbrow, the former under secretary of the Air Force; retired Adm. John Richardson, the former chief of naval operations; former Deputy Defense Secretary Bob Work; and Michèle Flournoy, the former under secretary of defense for policy.
