CHANTILLY, Va., July 10, 2023 – Amentum, a leading global engineering and systems modernization company (provider), announced today that it has appointed Travis Johnson to its senior leadership team as Chief Financial Officer. As CFO, Travis is responsible for all of Amentum’s financial activities including accounting, finance strategy, business operations, planning and analysis, compliance, tax, and treasury.

“Travis brings valuable leadership and strengths, not just in financial management, but also in strategy, mergers and acquisitions, and business transformation,” said John Heller, Amentum CEO. “As part of our senior leadership team, he will play an important role as we drive towards our growth strategy of modernization for the U.S. government and our allies around the world.”

Prior to joining Amentum, Travis was Senior Vice President, Corporate Controller and Chief Accounting Officer of CACI. Before that, he served as Chief Accounting Officer at FLIR Systems and KeyW Corporation, leading a variety of transformation efforts that culminated in the sale of both companies for industry-leading multiples and shareholder returns. Travis also worked in a variety of finance leadership roles at Leidos and began his career in public accounting at RSM, one the world’s largest accounting firms.

“I am honored to be appointed as CFO at this critical time for Amentum,” said Travis Johnson. “I look forward to working with John, the senior leadership team, and the talented finance team as the company continues to execute on its strategic and financial priorities focused on value-added growth and operational excellence.”
