Tysons-based government contractor NuAxis Innovations announced Wednesday it has hired Denise Manning as vice president of resource conservation.
With more than 30 years of experience, Manning previously served as president of management consulting firm G&B Solutions, a wholly owned subsidiary of Alexandria-based VSE Corp. In 2013, she launched Manning Outcomes, another management consulting firm.
In her new role, she is responsible for supporting projects for the Department of Interior (DOI) and the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA).
“Denise has been a trusted adviser and mentor for many years, and it is a privilege to have her join NuAxis as a leader to develop and deliver solutions that align with our government’s mission of resource conservation,” NuAxis President Raza Latif said in a statement. “Denise’s experience of leading companies that I always looked up to is going to be instrumental in taking us to the next level of our growth and success in delivering superior [customer experience] solutions to the federal marketplace.”
Manning earned her bachelor’s degree in management information systems from The State University of New York (SUNY).
The company also announced Wednesday it has hired Amanda Chavez as director of customer experience. She previously worked with EthSynPro (ESP) as a partner and chief design officer and with McLean-based Booz Allen Hamilton as a lead associate working with clients including the Department of Veterans Affairs, the Department of Defense, the Transportation Security Administration and the National Science Foundation.
Chavez earned her bachelor’s degree in sociology from McDaniel College and her master’s degree in public administration from George Mason University.
