"Gene Renzi has had an immeasurable impact on ManTech's growth and success," said George J. Pedersen, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, ManTech International Corporation. "His integrity, his leadership, his devotion to the mission and to our country are unparalleled, and these qualities have helped shape our company, our philosophy and inspire our employees. We welcome his continued service to ManTech and thank him for his significant contributions."

"Since joining ManTech in 1993, Gene Renzi has built our Defense Systems Group into one of the preeminent organizations providing mission-critical technology services and solutions to the Department of Defense," said Robert A.

"Dave Bryan is an ideal choice to take over our Defense Systems group, at a time when there is strong demand for their services and solid opportunities for continued growth," said Mr. Pedersen. "He is considered one of the leading experts in the information technology aspects of Defense Transformation. In his past role as Vice Director of the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) and the Commander of the Joint Task Force for Computer Network Operations, he was at the leading edge of planning for future networks and systems to support the DOD and other government agencies. His accomplishments and the vision and leadership he has demonstrated in his career will be tremendous assets to ManTech."

"Among Dave's many successes in his career, he is credited with developing and implementing the most innovative overhaul of network operations doctrine in the history of the Department of Defense, which led to significant improvements in managing and securing the DOD Global Information Grid," said Mr. Coleman. "These achievements and experiences will significantly add to our abilities to serve our customers throughout the federal government."

Mr. Bryan began his career in 1970 as a signal officer in the Army. He later became commander of the 112th Special Operations Signal Battalion and 35th Airborne Signal Brigade.
