“We welcome Dianne as she assumes the leadership role at Miltope,” said Tom Vecchiolla, Chairman and CEO of ST Engineering North America. “Dianne’s experience and proven track record as a business leader makes her the right choice for Miltope.”
Beginning her career as a software engineer for General Dynamics, Howells advanced through multiple positions of increasing responsibility, with E-Systems and Raytheon, and most recently, as Vice President for Leonardo DRS’ Naval Power Systems line of business.
Howells holds a Bachelor of Science degree from Texas A&M University, as well as certifications in Program Management, Lean Six Sigma, Earned Value Management and Integrated Product Team Leadership.
Howells succeeds Jack Haley, who earlier this year notified the Board of his intent to leave the company. ST Engineering North America thanks Jack for his years of leadership at Miltope, and for his distinguished career in service to the Nation.
