Robb named chairman of MITRE
The MITRE Corp. has named former Gov. Chuck Robb chairman of its board of trustees.
Robb, who has been a member of the board since 2001, took over following the death of James Schlesinger, who was chairman of the nonprofit for 27 years.
Robb has been vice chairman of the board since 2006.
Robb served as Virginia’s governor from 1982 until 1986 and was a U.S. senator from 1989 to 2001.
“Senator Robb has brought a wealth of knowledge in national security to MITRE's board,” MITRE President and CEO Alfred Grasso said in a statement. “We value his leadership and are working together to ensure a smooth transition of Dr. Schlesinger's responsibilities.”
MITRE Corp. is a non-profit organization that operates research and development centers for the federal government. Its two main locations are in McLean and Bedford, Mass.
