Telos Alliance has appointed Scott Stiefel to the role of co-CEO, effective immediately. Stiefel will serve alongside Tom Swidarski.
Stiefel has been with Telos for more than 20 years, starting as a hardware and embedded systems engineer. He has been the chief operating officer since 2014.
“I’m excited to work side-by-side with Scott as he leads Telos Alliance into the future. Scott continues to grow and to become a better and more effective leader. His complete skill set will soon match his integrity, character and moral compass,” says co-CEO Tom Swidarski.
Frank Foti, Telos Alliance founder and executive chairman of the board, comments, “Scott has a unique mix of abilities needed to lead. He has a level of integrity and the knowledge needed for both business and engineering. Over the years, it’s been such a pleasure to see him grow, first as an engineer, then taking on the business segment. Many years ago, I could see Scott rising to the role of CEO. Under the tremendous guidance provided by current CEO Tom Swidarski, this is now a reality.”
“I am excited to join Tom in leading Telos through yet another era of growth and transformation as we expand into the world of software and enterprise systems, platforms and professional services and to continue expanding our world-class hardware offerings,” says Stiefel.
