Mary Howell Named Chair of V2X, Company Formed by Vectrus & Vertex Merger

According to a proxy filing posted April 27th by Vectrus, Mary Howell has been named chair of V2X, the new company created by the merger of Vectrus and Vertex.

The new entity will become “V2X” and will be headquartered in Northern Virginia at closing or shortly thereafter. The closing is expected sometime in the third quarter of this year.

A more specific location is still to be determined and agreed upon by both companies.

Designated as chair of the board, Mary Howell has been a member of the Vectrus board since it opened for business in 2014 after spinning off from then-parent Exelis. Howell was an executive vice president at Textron from 1995 until her retirement in 2009 and currently leads her own international consulting firm.
