Xe Services names Jill Pettibone as chief administration officer
USTC Holdings, LLC, the investor consortium that acquired Xe Services, LLC, including its main holding, U.S. Training Center, Inc. (USTC), in December 2010, announced on August 18 that Jill Pettibone has been named the company’s chief administration officer.
Pettibone will oversee company contracts, procurement, human resources, IT and other functions at Xe’s new headquarters office located in Arlington, VA. She comes to Xe from KBR, where she served as senior vice president of business unit operations, handling broad-based strategic, operational and performance issues for the North American government and defense unit of the company.
“We’re very excited to have Jill join our leadership team,” said Ted Wright, CEO of Xe Services. “Her exceptional experience and commitment to getting the job done will help us in our continuing mission to deliver best-in-class operational excellence.”
“Xe Services’ commitment and capabilities are unrivaled in the industry,” said Pettibone. “I am very pleased to join such an elite team.”
After 27 years of public service, Pettibone entered the private sector from the Department of Defense (DoD), where she held leadership positions in acquisition, logistics, contracts and contract management in the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) and the Defense Contract Management Agency (DCMA). She earned a bachelor of science degree in education from the University of Illinois and a master of arts in business from Central Michigan University.
Xe Services serves the U.S. Department of State, the U.S. Department of Defense, numerous law enforcement and intelligence organizations and agencies, allied governments and corporate customers globally.
Upon acquiring Xe and its core operating businesses last year, USTC Holdings, LLC formed a new board of directors, including independent unaffiliated directors, to manage the company and enhance its governance and oversight capabilities. Members of the new board include former U.S. Attorney General John Ashcroft, retired U.S. Navy Admiral Bobby Inman, former Clinton Administration General Counsel Jack Quinn and businessman, investor and philanthropist Red McCombs.
