John Kehoe has joined Involta’s leadership team as executive vice president of manufacturing. Kehoe has 25 years of experience across the digital infrastructure, manufacturing, industrial and technology industries. He previously was senior vice president and chief information officer at Xylem, Inc., overseeing global IT operations and supporting more than 350 locations across 65 countries. “[Kehoe] will play a crucial role in expanding the mission-critical IT solutions and security services that are paramount to manufacturers in order to improve productivity, optimize operations and keep supply chains running smoothly,” Involta CEO and President Jim Buie, said in a news release. Involta’s addition of Kehoe follows the firm’s completion of the Department of Defense’s Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification and the National Institute of Standards and Technology Framework. The firm received a Supplier Performance Risk System (SPRS) score of 109/110, which is used by the Department of Defense to assess the risk of a supplier. The strong SPRS score demonstrates Involta is a low-risk technology partner for government contracts, including those in manufacturing, the release said.
