Analytic Services Inc. Announces Retirement of CEO and President, Dr. Ruth David

Falls Church, VA (April 28, 2015)

Dr. David has been President of ANSER since 1998. During her term, she led the restructuring of the public service not-for-profit corporation to consistently provide unbiased, timely, and innovative advice to government agencies in the post-Cold War environment.  She also led in recognizing and analyzing non-traditional security threats by establishing the Institute for Homeland Security in 1999.  After a period of rapid growth in the post-9/11 era, the institute subsequently formed the basis for the newly formed Department of Homeland Security’s first Federally Funded Research and Development Center (FFRDC.)  The now-named Homeland Security Studies and Analysis Institute (HSSAI) is the FFRDC operated by ANSER on behalf of DHS.  In 2008, Dr. David led ANSER in the recognition of its 50th anniversary as a preferred partner to many agencies within the Departments of Defense and Homeland Security.

Dr. David will continue to contribute to national scientific and technological innovation through her leadership on the Defense Science Board, the National Science Foundation, the National Academy of Engineering, Wichita State University College of Engineering, the Stevens Institute of Technology, and through many other organizations and boards in the defense and security science and technological fields.

Mr. Ronald E. Cuneo, Chairman of the ANSER Board of Trustees, and former senior executive in the public and private sectors with such firms as Wang Laboratories, Oracle, General Electric, and Honeywell, will act as interim CEO while the Board continues its Presidential search.
