Jeanine Christian joins DLH as President, Social & Scientific Systems (“S3”), and Jacqueline Everett is appointed as DLH Chief Growth Officer.

In her role as President of the Company’s S3 operating unit, Ms. Christian succeeds Kevin Beverly and will lead operations focused on the Public Health and Life Sciences market. Having spent over 20 years in science-based organizations, she most recently led a team of over 300 scientists, clinicians, researchers, and data analysts whose mission it was to translate scientific discovery and technology advances into societal benefits for federal and state government, non-profit, academic, and commercial clients. Ms. Christian’s last role was Vice President & Business Line Manager of the Public Health Research Division with Battelle Memorial Institute. Prior to that, she directed various impactful research programs as a Senior Study Director at Westat. As S3 President, her responsibilities will include strategic direction of the operating unit, customer relationship management, program execution, human resources, and generating business growth.

Ms. Everett joins DLH as Chief Growth Officer. In this role, she will spearhead enterprise-wide business development activities, establishing the vision, direction, and strategy required to achieve the Company’s growth objectives. She brings over 25 years of successful experience in the government contracting industry, most recently as Vice President Business Development & Strategy with Leidos. Prior to that, she held business development leadership positions with DXC Technology, CSC and Serco.

“I am proud to announce these changes to our leadership structure, which we are confident will enable DLH to further capitalize on our highly-talented workforce, broad capabilities, and longstanding demand for the services we provide,” said DLH President and CEO Zach Parker. “Jeanine’s scientific expertise, customer relationships, effective leadership, and results-oriented approach to business make her a fantastic fit for DLH. At the same time, Jackie Everett is recognized throughout our industry as an accomplished, dynamic leader. Her drive, motivation, and experience are expected to enable DLH to execute our strategic vision. I am pleased that both are joining us at this critical time in our growth trajectory.

“I also want to thank Kevin Beverly for his leadership and for being an invaluable partner throughout the acquisition and integration of S3 into DLH. With Kevin at the helm, S3 grew to be a leading public health service organization providing solutions in clinical and biomedical research, epidemiology, health policy, and program evaluation. He will remain on board in an advisory role to support us in this transition; we are grateful for his many contributions and wish him all the best as he writes his next chapter.”
