Madison, Ala., January 14, 2010 — Freedom Information Systems has hired a new Huntsville Programs Director, Scott Howell. Howell will lead the Freedom teams supporting NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Ala.
With more than 21 years of contractor experience developing software, designing databases and managing projects for NASA and DoD, Howell has not only the hands-on experience of developing information systems, but also the practical knowledge of how NASA implements them. His experience also includes working for the developers of the primary data and configuration management system used by NASA’s Exploration Systems Mission Directorate.
Howell is no stranger to Freedom either, and has “followed the growth of Freedom from the beginning.” In fact, much of his experience at NASA was directly working with Freedom President Mark Ogles and with several members of Freedom’s current technical staff while at a previous company.
“The timing didn’t work out until now, but we’ve always wanted to bring Scott onboard,” said Mark Ogles, “His values, experience and leadership style are precisely in line with Freedom’s goals for client support and corporate growth.”
Mr. Howell earned a BSBA in Management Information Systems and a Master of Science degree in Management in the Management of Technology Program at the University of Alabama in Huntsville. He is also a Project Management Professional, certified by the Project Management Institute; and is SCRUM Master Certified.
Freedom Information Systems, Inc. is a woman-owned, small business with offices in Alexandria, Va. and Madison, Ala., and technical staff located at federal facilities in Alabama, Florida, Ohio, Virginia and the District of Columbia.
