The Radiant Group, Inc. Announces the Addition of Key Principals to the Executive Team

Roles for HumanGeo and RadiantBlue Execs Expanded to Encompass Group-Wide Leadership Responsibilities

CHANTILLY, VA--(Marketwired - August 18, 2016) - The Radiant Group, Inc., a premier provider of geospatial technical, and analytical solutions and services to the federal government, announces the appointment of key business unit principals to additional roles within the executive management organization.

Al Di Leonardo, President and CEO of HumanGeo, has been named President of The Radiant Group; Abe Usher, HumanGeo's Chief Technology Officer, will assume this role across The Radiant Group; and Larry Shand, President of RadiantBlue, has been named Chief Development Officer for the five companies within The Radiant Group.

"Having Al as President, and Larry and Abe take on key leadership positions, not only raises the awareness of the Radiant brand, but it also positions us to rapidly evolve to meet customer requirements, all while building an enduring institution focused on mission-oriented, technical problem solving," said Larry Hill, Radiant's Chief Executive Officer.

In his new role as President, Al Di Leonardo will be focused on day-to-day management of the group, including developing the top priorities and implementing them across the Radiant team, while driving initiatives that contribute to long-term operational and program excellence. Remarked Larry Hill, "I'm excited to have a trusted partner as President. Al has proven himself to be an outstanding team-builder and leader in the Intelligence Community and in Special Operations, while building a world-class team at HumanGeo."

Larry Shand's new role as Chief Development Officer will focus on leading Radiant's efforts to build integrated customer pursuits and campaigns, planning strategic interactions, and selling the Group's technical solutions. "When we began this journey more than three years ago, it was about bringing like-minded individuals whose passion for the mission made a company that could disrupt, bring innovation, and solve hard technical problems together. Bringing The Radiant Group closer together through this integrated leadership team will provide large company breadth with small company depth and agility. Our goal and common purpose remains the same today as it did when we began: a future focused on building a market leading team and an extended family that takes care of people while solving the nation's most challenging problems," said Larry Shand.

Abe Usher's new role as Chief Technology Officer will be focused on maintaining Radiant's technical excellence and driving a technology and data analytics roadmap tied to market requirements to ensure the Group's advanced capability development stays ahead of evolving mission trends. "The Radiant team is composed of proven innovators in the areas of applied data science, analytic methodology, cyber-security, and cloud-based software solutions. Unified by a common technology vision, we will introduce next-generation capabilities like deep-learning and containerized software deployment to create leap-ahead technology improvements for our customers," said Abe Usher.

"Bringing these key principals to the Radiant executive team is necessary to manage our continued strong growth and is a reflection of the cohesion and trust we have built as a team. This leadership group will create a laser focus to harness the technology, analytics, and people at every level and will continue to build Radiant into an industry leader. The opportunity to expand our Arlington operations and create a second center of gravity alongside our Chantilly headquarters will generate excitement and energy across the team, simultaneously enhancing our great workplace culture and boosting our team focus on advanced data analytics which is a key underpinning to Radiant's offerings," said Al Di Leonardo.
