Corporate Leadership

Jodie Anderson- President and Chief Executive Officer

Since 2016, Jodie Anderson’s goal for INTECON has been to ensure that the company continues Mike Anderson’s legacy, in keeping with the INTECON business model and our corporate Guiding Principles (Customer Service, Employee Support, Community Development, and Business Continuity). Our role in maintaining positive, moral and ethical practices in the management of our programs provides the foundation of our interaction with our customers. These guiding principles are the backbone of INTECON.

Before assuming leadership of INTECON, Jodie served as the company’s Vice President of Finance; Vice President of International Operations; Program Manager; Recruiting/Deployment Manager and Information Technology Manager. Her career spans numerous information technology roles, including hardware and software engineering, software development, and technical program management, for both large and small businesses. Her background in the IT and Finance arenas coupled with having worked in nearly every area of operations at INTECON enables the company to be a responsible contractor to our customers. Jodie’s emphasis on compliance with corporate mechanisms for quality—such as our ISO 9001:2015 program—is key to INTECON’s engagement in the federal contracting industry as we adhere to our customers’ schedules, budgets, and mission objectives.

“INTECON stands for Integrity Consulting. We conduct business according to the philosophy that IT IS ALWAYS RIGHT TO DO WHAT IS RIGHT for our customers, for our employees, for our community.”
