Amentum is a premier global technical and engineering services partner supporting critical programs of national significance across defense, security, intelligence, energy and environment. Headquartered in Germantown, Md., the company employs more than 37,000 people in all 50 states and performs work in 105 foreign countries and territories.

Earlier this month, Amentum announced Charles A. Mathis as its new CFO- a position he held with SAIC from 2016 until he retired last year.


Amentum, a leading contractor to U.S. federal and allied governments, announced today that it has appointed Charles A. Mathis to its senior leadership team as Chief Financial Officer.

In his new role, Mathis is responsible for Amentum’s corporate finance activities including financial strategy, business operations, accounting, compliance, tax and treasury.

“Charlie possesses extensive expertise across financial and business operations and understands the complex environment in which government services companies operate,” said John Vollmer, Amentum’s CEO. “His leadership will be critical as we continue to grow into one of the largest providers of critical services to government customers.”

Mathis joins Amentum after retiring from SAIC last year, where he served as CFO since 2016. He previously served as CFO for defense contractors Force Protection, Inc. and EFW, Inc., and commercial IT and cloud company ScanSource, Inc. where he currently serves as a Director.

“I look forward to leading a diverse team of professionals within Amentum’s executive leadership team and finance organization as the company continues its growth trajectory,” Mathis said. “I am particularly excited to explore ways we can create value for the business in 2022 and beyond.”

Mathis earned his B.A. from Wake Forest University and an MBA from the University of Chicago Graduate School of Business. At the beginning of his career, Mathis served in the U.S. Marine Corps as an infantry officer.

New contract with the Navy:

The Naval Undersea Warfare Center, Newport has selected Amentum, a leading contractor to U.S. federal and allied governments, to provide range operations and maintenance support services under a new contract worth up to $462 million.

The 10-year contract will support the Atlantic Undersea Test and Evaluation Center (AUTEC), the Navy’s large-area, deep-water, undersea test and evaluation range. AUTEC’s activities include underwater research, testing and evaluation of anti-submarine weapons, and sonar tracking and communications.

“Amentum is pleased to have been awarded this contract in support of AUTEC, and we look forward to working with the Navy, our partners and other stakeholders to ensure the success of the test and training mission at this unique range,” said John Vollmer, Chief Executive Officer of Amentum.

“We are honored to have this opportunity to build upon our existing work as a premier provider of advanced test and training range services,” said Dr. Karl Spinnenweber, President of Amentum’ s Mission Readiness Strategic Business Unit. “Amentum is looking forward to extending our best-in-class range support services to the Navy in support of AUTEC’s critical mission.”

In addition to range support services, Amentum will provide AUTEC with program management and business operations services; security; program documentation; safety and environmental support; public works and base services, logistics support; test scheduling, planning and execution; air and marine services; and data acquisition, processing and analysis.

Work will be performed on Andros Island, Commonwealth of the Bahamas, and West Palm Beach, Fla.
