Smartronix Announces Departure of Executive Vice President LtGen Robert "Bob" Shea, Ret.

Hollywood, Maryland - 25 June 2014 – Smartronix, a leading information technology and engineering solutions provider, today announced the resignation of Executive Vice President LtGen Robert "Bob" Shea, Ret., who is transitioning from the company to become the President and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Armed Forces Communications and Electronics Association (AFCEA).

Shea joined Smartronix as a Consulting Strategic Advisor in 2006, shortly after retiring as the Director, Command, Control, Communications and Computer Systems (C4 Systems) for the Joint Staff.  In 2007, Shea joined the company full time as Executive Vice President.

"Bob had an immediate and lasting impact on Smartronix," said John Parris, Smartronix CEO.  "It’s not every day that a person of Bob’s stature joins a mid-sized company, and we are honored that Bob chose Smartronix.  He has been a tremendous leader for our company and an invaluable mentor for me.  Bob and I have had many discussions on the state of Government and industry relations and it is a consolation knowing that his experiences, talents, and connectivity will be leveraged by such an esteemed organization. Smartronix’ loss is the greater industry’s gain.  I wish Bob the best and look forward to working with him as an AFCEA member."

Shea commented "Smartronix is a great company.  You couldn't find a company more committed to its incredibly talented work force.  That was obvious to me from day one and a major factor for choosing to work there.  I have no doubt Smartronix will continue to succeed in the future, and that provided comfort in my decision to accept the AFCEA leadership position."
