Science Applications International Corp. (SAIC) announced on May 18 that it has named Dorothy (Dee Dee) Helfenstein as the company’s executive vice president and chief strategic growth officer, effective immediately. In this newly created position, Helfenstein will lead SAIC’s corporate strategy and growth initiatives, reporting directly to SAIC CEO Nazzic Keene.

“Dee Dee is exactly the right person at the right time to join SAIC,” said Keene. 

Helfenstein’s new position was created to drive the company’s organic growth and market leadership by aligning capabilities with customer needs and market opportunities and to strengthen the company’s ability to bring innovative, differentiated solutions to our customers, and deliver digital transformation to the U.S. government.

“I have watched and admired SAIC as it evolved from a spinoff to a true market leader. I am excited by the opportunity to join Nazzic and her leadership team, to work side-by-side and in partnership with the general managers, and to meaningfully contribute to achieving its strategy and goals,” said Helfenstein. “It’s an honor to join a company with such a strong heritage of service to our customers, our communities, our nation, and our world.”

Helfenstein joins SAIC from Booz Allen Hamilton where she was an executive vice president and leader of the firm’s Solutions Business.

She is the recipient of numerous awards and recognitions, including Diversity Journal’s Women Worth Watching (2016), Power Women of DC Tech (2018) and Federal Computer Week’s Fed 100 Award (2019).
