Government relations expert joins DRS Technologies.

DRS Technologies : 08 April, 2008  (Company News)
Vice President for Government Relations to bring rich experience in dealing with government contracts to DRS Technologies.
DRS Technologies announces that Durwood Ringo has joined its Washington Operations as Senior Vice President, Government Relations.

As leader of the Government Relations team within DRS's Washington Operations, Mr Ringo's duties will include developing and implementing legislative strategies in support of DRS programs and related business activities. He also will be responsible for coordinating and directing corporate-wide government relations' interaction with Congress and other federal agencies.

Mr Ringo comes to DRS from General Electric where, as Government Programs Executive, he managed tactical programs for GE Aircraft Engines and represented that company throughout all agencies of the Department of Defence and the United States Congress.

Mr Ringo had an illustrious military career in the Marine Corps, serving initially in Vietnam as an aviator, followed by subsequent command and staff tours of increasing responsibility. He is a graduate of the Naval Test Pilot School and the Naval War College. After a brief tour as the Marine Corps Liaison to the US Senate, Mr Ringo became Director of Senate Affairs for the Assistant Secretary of Defence for Legislative Affairs. Upon retiring from the Marine Corps, he joined the Professional Staff of the Senate Armed Services Committee, where he was primarily responsible for Tactical Aviation programs, while also covering arms control and treaty issues.

Mr Ringo earned a Bachelor of Science degree in civil engineering from the Citadel, an MEng degree in industrial engineering from the University of Florida, and an MA degree in national security and strategic studies from the College of Naval Warfare. He also has completed the Kennedy School of Government's Program for Senior Executives in national and international security at Harvard University.
