CapRock Government Solutions has selected Augustine Ponturiero to join its Fairfax, Virginia-based team as Director of Operations. Ponturiero is the most recent addition to CapRock’s government division, which took steps in 2009 to install a new management team as part of a strategic initiative to transform into a global company dedicated to solving the demanding communications challenges of its government clients.
In his new role, Ponturiero will primarily oversee the day-to-day functions of CapRock’s Satcom Division and its government-dedicated Network Operations Center (NOC). He will also be responsible for the creation and maintenance of best practices in program management, while expanding existing customer programs and relationships. Ponturiero will report to Vice President of Operations, David Cavossa. Ponturiero has more than 20 years of comprehensive experience in C4ISR programs. Prior to CapRock, he spent five years with Northrop Grumman Corporation, where he served as program manager and capture manager for various IT, telecom, and modeling and simulation programs.
