Booz Allen names executive VP, market strategy leader
Andrew Turner joins McLean Fortune 500 consultancy
McLean-based Fortune 500 global management consulting company Booz Allen Hamilton Inc. announced Wednesday it has hired Andrew Turner as an executive vice president and market strategy leader for the firm’s global commercial business.
With two decades of experience, Turner most recently was chief security officer with Fidelity National Information Services (FIS), where he oversaw corporate security and the company’s cyber and identity programs. In his new role, he will report to Bill Phelps, executive vice president and leader of Booz Allen’s global commercial cyber business.
“We are thrilled that Andrew will bring his C-level experience and perspective as a cybersecurity practitioner to our team,” Phelps said in a statement. “As our clients continue to embark on ambitious digital transformation journeys, we know that a successful digital transformation must be done securely to produce the results it purports to deliver.”
Before his time with FIS, Turner served as chief security officer at payment processor Worldpay, where he led the company’s security functions, and also served as head of global cybersecurity with Visa. Former Gov. Terry McAuliffe appointed Turner in 2014 to serve on the Virginia Cyber Security Commission, which focuses on how the public and private sectors can work together on Virginia’s cybersecurity industry.
“As one of the world’s largest cybersecurity solution providers, Booz Allen is uniquely positioned to solve our clients’ toughest security challenges,” Turner said in a statement. “I am eager to join such a strong team and support the needs of clients through transformative, industry-leading strategies.”
Booz Allen has 27,173 employees, with 10,245 in Virginia.
