ARLINGTON, Va., Aug. 10 /PRNewswire/ — Engineering Services Network Inc. (ESN), a trusted leader in technology and engineering solutions, announced today the appointment of William “Bill” Valentine as the Vice President of Strategic Plans and Policies at ESN.
Before joining ESN, Valentine was the executive vice president and chief operating officer of American Systems Corp., which provides systems engineering, technical, and managed services to government customers.
