Federal government contractor Saalex Corp. announced changes in its executive leadership on Monday.

Travis Mack, who had served as CEO and President of the Camarillo Company, was named CEO and President.
Robert Bezduch, previously director of program operations, takes over as president. And becoming executive vice president and chief financial officer is Randy Wheeler, who was only vice president and chief financial officer.

The changes have been made to ensure that Saalex meets the increasing demands of the direction it is experiencing with its rapid growth. Last week, the company announced the acquisition of NetSimco, significantly expanding the size of the organization. Saalex now has nearly 700 employees in offices around the world, the company said in a statement.


Saalex is growing at an incredible rate, and it’s paramount that she grows her management team with her, Mack said.


“I have enormous confidence in Robert’s promotion to President of Saalex, as he is uniquely adept at handling human, technical and programmatic issues alike,” Mack said in a statement. “He will focus on the day-to-day management needs of the business, which will allow Randy and I to allocate more time to strategic and tactical planning for growth.”


“I am very excited and grateful for this opportunity and appreciate that Travis trusts me and trusts me to lead this organization,” Bezduch added in a statement. “I loved this company from the first day I was hired, because of the people and the company culture.”


Bezduch has been employed by Saalex for five years and has nearly 30 years of program management experience and over 30 years of combined experience as an active duty Army intelligence officer and federal contractor. Wheeler, who has been instrumental in the company’s growth, has guided the company’s financial needs since 2004, according to Saalex’s statement.
