Jones’ appointment ultimately serves to advance the NDIA mission of engaging thoughtful and innovative leaders to promote the best policies, practices, products, and technology for warfighters and others who ensure the safety and security of our nation.
“NDIA has a long, rich history of bringing together our nation’s leaders in the public and private sectors to strengthen the government-industry partnership, driving innovation and building the future of defense,” said Secretary Robert O. Work, former U.S. Deputy Secretary of Defense, Chairman of the SGS Board, and Distinguished Senior Fellow for Defense and National Security at the Center for a New American Security. “Logan’s leadership at SGS and now on the Board of NDIA ensures that a fresh, critical perspective is represented as we head into heated global competition for military-technical superiority, where cutting edge technologies like artificial intelligence will play a key role.”
The NDIA Board of Directors is composed of senior leaders across the broad spectrum of companies that support national security and comprise the defense industrial base. As one of its newest members, Jones joins executives from organizations like The Boeing Company, Booz Allen Hamilton, Deloitte, Raytheon Technologies, and more. Jones brings his experience at the helm of SGS, where he leads the company in its mission to deliver cutting edge AI solutions to government and defense’s most critical challenges. Prior to SGS, Jones served as the Vice President and founding member of the largest aerospace venture fund and innovation group, Boeing HorizonX. His extensive experience advancing technology adoption within the DoD at the innovation arm of a large commercial defense company and through his work at SGS provides him a unique point of view that will play a role in shaping the future of NDIA.
“I am humbled to join the NDIA Board of Directors, which represents over 1,800 businesses and more than 66,000 individuals whose work is essential to helping advance U.S. national security interests,” said Jones. “The work this organization continues to do serves to ensure innovation and progress is positioned at the forefront of the industry’s push to marry next-generation technology with the initiatives of the US government.”
